The compact little town of Modena is packed with a historic punch, hauntingly beautiful architecture and a legacy of food-culture that make it the ideal destination for a day trip!
After a quick 30-minute train ride from Bologna, you will follow your local Bologna host through its quaint, cobbled streets, starting your day in the ancient city center (a UNESCO World Heritage Site, no less).
From there you’ll find the Piazza Grande, the 12th century Modena Cathedral and Torre Civica. Marvel at the masterful frescoes along the way (your host will point out some from the 11th century), and stop for an espresso under the elegant medieval porticos.
Modena is notable as the birthplace of Ferrari and balsamic vinegar (not that they have much to do with one another), but you’ll see signs of this proud heritage everywhere! You can even go for a balsamic vinegar tasting if you like?
Perhaps famous landmarks like the Palazzo Comunale, or maybe, you’re an art connoisseur and would like to visit the Palazzo dei Musei Gallery? Finish off your day at either a Michelin starred restaurant or a traditional osteria. Exploring is hungry work, after all.
