Tips for the Region

Emilia Romagna is a region in northern Italy that borders the Apennine mountains. It is best known for its medieval cities, seaside resorts, and rich gastronomy. Steeped in history and impressive architecture, Emilia Romagna is a popular tourist destination with its three main cities; Bologna, Ravenna and Rimini offering something for everyone.

The Emilia Romagna Culture and History.

Emilia Romagna is one of the most well developed and wealthiest regions in Europe. It has great cultural and historical importance. To the north of the city is the Apennine mountains, with lagoons and thermal springs occupying a large part of the region. The name 'Emilia Romagna' is a legacy of ancient Rome, with Emilia being from 'via Aemillia', the road connecting Rome to northern Italy which was completed in 187 B.C. Bologna - the capital city of the region - has two Sixt agencies allowing you to access your vehicle rapidly to start taking in the ancient sights on offer.

Rimini is to the north east of the region and boasts beachside nightclubs and clear shallow waters on the Adriatic Coast. Temples and medieval fortresses host cultural events on a regular basis.

Important Cities

Bologna is the capital city of the region, and with Sixt agencies at both the train station and airport, it couldn't be easier to commence your journey here. Rimini and Ravenna are two must-see cities during your stay.


If you arrive in the capital city of Bologna via train or plane, you will be met by elegant and extensive porticoes. Your rental car will be waiting for you to take in the ancient architecture on the winding, narrow streets. Declared a 'European City of Culture' in 2000, and a UNESCO 'City of Music' in 2006, it is less than a 10 minute drive from the airport into the centre of the city where you can take in monuments such as the Fountain of Neptune, the iconic Due Torri, or the Sanctuary of the Madonna Di San Luca.


Rimini is the largest resort on the Adriatic Coast. It is around a 1.5 hour drive from Bologna, taking in historical architecture and magnificent views along the route. Boasting 9 miles of white sandy beaches with clear turquoise waters, Rimini is hugely popular amongst both tourists and Italians themselves. A short inland drive brings you to the old town and its spectacular sights including the Arch of Augustus from 27 B.C., and the Tiberius Bridge from the early 1st Century.


An hours drive from Bologna is Ravenna, a city known for its kaleidoscope of mosaics adorning many of its buildings such as the Basilica di San Vitale and the Mausoleo di Galla Placidia. North of the city is the circular tomb of King Theodoric the Great within the Mausoleo di Teodorico, built in the 6th Century.

Climate, Cuisine, and Children

Climate and Temperatures

Summers are hot and muggy in Emilia Romagna, with temperatures up to 29.7 degrees celsius on average throughout the summer months of July and August. Spring and autumn are ideal times to visit, where temperatures are mild and the tourist hotspots are less crowded. Emilia Romagna has a muggy sub-tropical climate with thunderstorms a common feature.

The Emilia Romagna Cuisine.

The best food in Italy is in the Emilia Romagna region. It is long known as the home of parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar, and prosciutto. The region is home to the town of Parma - known for its delicious ham, Modena - known for its balsamic vinegar and meats, and Bologna - known for its exquisite pasta dishes.

Emilia Romagna With Children.

Emilia Romagna is the ideal destination for a family trip. The beaches on the Adriatic coast benefit from clear, shallow waters with lifeguards ensuring everyone's safety. Family excursions may include a castle tour at the Antico Borgo di Tabiano Castello castle or an exciting tour of the factory and track at the Ferrari Factory. Family treasure hunts or glass working projects help to keep children entertained during their stay.
