The story of Emilia-Romagna is intrinsically linked to what was essentially a trunk road. Not particularly glamorous, granted, but the good news is that the road in question - the arrow straight Roman road the Via Aemilia - links several wonderful places, from Parma in the north west of the region to Rimini on the coast. Speaking of roads, anyone thinking about Emilia-Romagna holidays should consider a road trip from one end to the other to enjoy much that makes Italy great - fabulous food, fascinating cultural treasures, fast cars and fantastic scenery, and all this despite most people's inability to point to the place on a map.
It might be a stretch to call this 'secret Italy', but Emilia-Romagna remains a seriously underrated region.

We had a lovely time - the hotel was gorgeous - very comfy and in the perfect spot and they were very helpful and nice. Our two guides were excellent - very knowledgeable and interesting. It was great - all round! We were lucky and had beautiful weather too (blue sky and sun - but freezing, which was great). Thank you so much for everything - it was all perfect (transfer was great too).
