Modena is a city to discover

by taking a stroll

under the porticos

or cycling along the roads

following the ancient canals,

in order to relive the medieval town

and hear the echoes

of the court

of the Estense family.

Unlike better-known

Italian ‘museum’ cities,

crowded with tourists,

Modena offers you the chance

to hear and speak Italian

on every corner.

In the shops or on the streets

you will always find someone

willing to stop

for a chat with you

LUCA GHIRLANDINA  Modena Piazza XX settembre

Modena is situated in a strategic

central geographic location.

It is close and well connected

to several important and famous cities:

Bologna, Milan, Venice, Verona,

Florence, Pisa, Siena.

Modena is a great starting point

that allows you to discover

small ‘jewels’ such as Ferrara,

Ravenna, Parma, Mantova,

Reggio Emilia, Cremona, Piacenza,

the beaches on Romagna’s Riviera

in the summertime or

the ski facilities of Mount Cimone

during winter season.
