La Dolce Vita


With cities of Bolonga, Parma and Modena this region is home to some of  Italy’s great foods.  Modena is the home of Balsamic Vinegar and Parma is the home of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Prosciutto.  Bolonga is not only the region’s capital, but also from where the famous Bolognese meat sauce (Ragu) and Mortadella come.  So make certain you find your way to a trattoria and enjoy stuffed pasta such as Tortellini from Emilia, or Cappelletti of Romagna, served with Bolognese sauce.

Emilia-Romagna is also the home of the “prancing horse”.  Locals say they are often passed by the Ferrari factory’s drivers testing out the latest production.  So why don’t you join the locals and take a drive through the countryside of Modena and whilst passing the vines of the Lambrusco and Trebbiano, who knows a flash of red may leave you for dust.

Modena is also the birth place of one of the most recognised classical performers of our time - Luciano Pavarotti.  It was at the Theatre of Reggio Emilia in Modena that he made is operatic début in La Boheme.  So maybe wandering through the theatre you may find your hidden operatic talents!!
