Emilia Romagna: the heart of Italy
Italy is a mixture of artistic and natural wonders. Everywhere you go you breathe art and the cuisine is among the most varied in the world.
Emilia-Romagna, culturally and geographically, lends itself well to representing the heart of Italy. Here you can really find and enjoy the typical Italian lifestyle. The landscape delights the eye with mountains, rivers, valleys and plains down to the sea. It is rich in history and is also the Italian region with the largest number of DOC and IGP food products. The Via Emilia, a 2nd century Roman road, still connects Piacenza (Placentia) to Rimini (Ariminum).
The Romagna hinterland is situated on the final part of this ancient road: it is the lesser-known in terms of tourism and for this very reason it still retains many authentic aspects and strong links with local traditions. This area boasts an artistic and naturalistic heritage, which can really excite and surprise the visitor!
Villages and art centres
Our territory is full of fortresses, medieval villages and castles, belonging to the ancient families of Malatesta and Montefeltro: gems like Santarcangelo di Romagna, Verucchio, San Leo, Pennabilli, Sant’Agata Feltria, Montegridolfo, Gradara, Urbino, Ravenna, Cesena and many other treasures are scattered between the Valmarecchia and the Valconca.
Famous artists and celebrities were born or lived in these localities: Tonino Guerra and Federico Fellini; Dante and Piero della Francesca.
Besides being synonymous with art and culture, Romagna also has enchanting landscapes which include naturalistic parks such as Mount Carpegna, Sasso Simone and Simoncello, the Foreste Casentinesi.
Typical cuisine and traditions
In Romagna there are also excellent Made in Italy, Doc and Igp food and wine products: fossa cheese, squacquerone (cream cheese), cold cuts of Mora Romagna (a breed of pig from Emilia-Romagna), white truffles and St. George’s mushrooms, chestnuts, conserves, piadina and cassone, Sangiovese wine and extra-virgin olive oil. Last but not least, fresh pasta, which is an Emilia-Romagna speciality par excellence, with typical local varieties: tagliatelle, tortellini, cappelletti and passatelli.
Thanks to the genuine hospitality, kindness and good humour of the local people, it is easy to feel more at home than in many other places in the world.
The authentic Romagna
If you have already been on the Romagna Riviera, you will have noticed that the hotel halls are full of leaflets all offering the same things: amusement parks, boat rides along the coast and visits to art centres in crowded tourist buses. But Romagna can offer much more! You can visit a castle, take a walk in the country or discover small farms where you can enjoy local food & wine products.
However, it is not easy to find the right place from the huge volume of information available on the web. This is one of the reasons why Itineraris exists. We will accompany you in the discovery of authentic Romagna, with its traditions and history, avoiding places that are too crowded.
We suggest that you enjoy your holiday at a slow pace, like the local people do!
