While Ferrara is not a big city like Florence or Bologna, it’s packed with things to see and do. After all, Ferrara, City of the Renaissance, and its Po Delta are UNESCO World Heritage sites. When planning your trip, at least double the 30 hours to even come close to scratching the surface.

Emilia-Romagna is a food lover’s paradise. From its expertly-made pastas to its carefully cured meats to balsamic vinegar that’s been made in the same way for centuries, Emilia-Romagna food is what dreams are made of. The region is considered by many to be the “breadbasket” of Italy, the culinary heart of the country. A two-week visit isn’t enough time to try everything Emilia-Romagna has to offer, but we did our best. Here are some of our favorite foods from around the region.

Uma das atividades mais legais que fizemos em Bolonha foi visitar a Carpigiani, onde a Luiza aprendeu, na prática, um receita de sorvete artesanal, o chamado gelato. A maioria das crianças ama sorvete e a Luiza é uma delas. Imagina a alegria dela aprendendo a fazer gelato, o autêntico sorvete italiano!!!

One of the most pleasant surprises of my recent trip to Emilia-Romagna, Italy was visiting the Enzo Ferrari Museum. Typically museums are not really my thing; I prefer to be out and about wandering a destination on foot, devouring local dishes, and checking out markets. Now that I’ve had a bit of time to reflect on my visit, I realize that one of the main reasons I enjoyed the Enzo Ferrari Museum so much is that it is not your typical museum.

Planear una visita a una ciudad desconocida no es tarea fácil en lo que respecta al tiempo que dedicar a cada actividad, por mucho que Internet nos lo haya puesto mucho más fácil. Cada persona es un mundo, tiene sus preferencias y manías. A veces se acierta, otras no. Lo bueno de las segundas, es que siempre queda la posibilidad de volver a visitar de nuevo esa ciudad que hemos dejado “a medias” por falta de tiempo. Algo así me sucedió en Ferrara.

Ravenna is a small, historic town in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna. Located close to the Adriatic Sea, the town can trace its history back more than 2,000 years. Ravenna enjoyed a prosperous period during Roman rule in the 1st century A.D. before being occupied by a succession of other powers including the Ostrogoths and the Byzantines. I was attracted to Ravenna after reading up about its UNESCO sites and stunning mosaics but during my stay there, I discovered other great reasons that warrant a stay of at least a few days. The UNESCO sites can be covered in a day or two as most of them are within walking distance of one another.

My love for hiking isn’t a secret – so it wasn’t purely by chance that I found myself hiking a part of the Alta Via Trail in Emilia Romagna. I knew that it was something I had to do during my week of exploring Emilia Romagna with Blogville, but I didn’t expect it would be on a day when the sun would decide to play hide-and-seek. “I’m sorry but the weather is like this,” said Riccardo, my guide, as he gestured to the low-hanging fog with a dejected look as we drove closer to our starting point in the Parco Regionale dell’Alto Appennino Modenese in Modena.

Brisig where?
My well-traveled friend questioned and gave me skeptical stare, thinking I was pulling her leg. She has never heard of Brisighella, a town in Emilia-Romagna and when I mentioned Faenza and Ravenna, she began to get a clearer picture as to where it’s situated. Surrounded by three rocky hills, Brisighella is known as “The three hills village” and listed as “One of the most beautiful villages in Italy”. While Ravenna, gets all the attention in this area, Brisighella with its picturesque backdrop and its unique, colorful defensive walkway, deserves a visit.

My cooking adventure began at Casa Artusi, which is named after Pellegrino Artusi, the father of modern Italian cookery. Born into a family of wealthy merchants, Artusi spent most of his life focusing on business, however, it was in his later years that he decided to follow his two passions: Italian cuisine and writing. This lead him to write the best-seller La scienza in cucina e l’arte di mangiare bene also known as The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well.

Superdeportivos. Es en lo que piensas al oír Ferrari y Lamborghini. Coches creados con la única intención de ser rápidos, muy rápidos, sin importar nada más. Bueno, quizás el diseño también entre en la ecuación, que para eso estamos en Italia. En este país no saben hacer nada feo, debe ser algo innato. Un segundo menos contra el cronómetro es la mejor recompensa tras años diseñando y creando estos vehículos que la mayoría de nosotros nunca poseeremos, y que nos tenemos que conformar con admirar las raras veces que se ven por la calle o cuando los vemos en un museo.

The energetic, historic capital of Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, Bologna is our favorite type of city. It is large enough to have lots of things to see and do but is easy to navigate and lacks the crushing crowds that can flood some of the bigger cities. Bologna has a rich heritage dating back thousands of years, with historic buildings and churches and the oldest university in the Western world. All that exists alongside fabulous markets, world-class entertainment, and some of the best food we’ve ever had. The fact that it’s slightly off the main tourist circuit makes it even better. Here’s a look at some of our favorite things to do in Bologna.

O Delta Po fica em uma região da Itália que nós brasileiros conhecemos pouco! O Po é o maior e um dos mais importantes rios da Itália. A parque onde fica o delta (encontro do rio com o mar) tem 540 km2, um ecossistema riquíssimo e a maior concentração de espécies de pássaros do país. Um destino muito interessante para as crianças pois tem muita natureza e aventura!
Nós tivemos oportunidade de visitar o Delta Po na nossa viagem pela Emilia Romagna, região onde fica Bolonha, Modena e Parma. Conhecer este parque foi completamente inusitado, bem diferente de tudo que eu conhecia na Itália.
