Destination Information

The northern-central region of Emilia-Romagna is the gastronomic heart of Italy, famous for its Parmesan, prosciutto, tortellini, various kinds of charcuterie and balsamic vinegar (produced from grape must in Modena). Astride the European culinary frontier between butter and olive oil, the natives of Emilia-Romagna love rich sauces, slow-braised meats and cheese. The provinces can also boast the magnificent cities of Bologna, Parma, Modena and Ferrara, each of which is a treasure trove of art and architecture.
