Bologna + Emilia-Romagna
Bologna + Emilia-Romagna Travel Guide
Off the SP486 highway, a small sign for the museum points left, down a long driveway to what looks like a dairy farm. Owned by retired Italian business mogul, Umberto Panini, the Maserati museum showcases these genteel sports cars.
An organic Parmigiano-Reggiano dairy (a tour finishes with a sampling of cheeses).
One of Italy's legendary opera houses; its season runs from January to mid-April.
Parma has an embarrassment of remarkable shops selling salumi, Parmesan, and prepared foods. You’ll never see a tourist in this one.
Do as the Modenese do and visit this covered market (open mornings only). Pick up lunch to go at Panini Schiavoni, a stall with unusual sandwich fillings (smoked swordfish; toasted pine nuts).
