Emilia-Romagna is a region in northern Italy, extending from the Apennine Mountains to the Po River in the north. It’s known for its medieval cities, rich gastronomy and seaside resorts. The capital, Bologna, is a vibrant city with an 11th-century university and arched porticos lining the streets and squares of its medieval core. Ravenna, near the Adriatic coast, is famed for its brightly colored Byzantine mosaics. Parma is famous for its prosciutto, cheese and other culinary delights. This is the land of Verdi’s operas and Giovanni Pascoli’s poetry, as well as Fellini’s unmistakable cinema.
