Things to Do in Emilia Romagna

Bologna on an Emilia Romagna cycling holiday


Bologna has plenty of attractions to keep you busy between indulgent meals. Pedal between the Piazza Maggiore, the Fountain of Neptune, Basilica di San Petronio and the leaning Two Towers. Those who don’t suffer from vertigo should climb the Asinelli tower’s stairs for views over the lively city’s rooftops. Bologna’s historical porticoes weave through the city and you can walk the 3.5km to Basilica di San Lucas under cover.

Parma on an Emilia Romagna cycling holiday


Dine on excellent cuisine in Parma, followed by an evening at Teatro Regio, where classical music and opera concerts are performed. Cycle at your leisure around the city, stopping to wander around Parma Cathedral’s frescoed ceiling and octagonal pink marble Baptistery and the Pilotta Palace that houses the National Gallery.

Cuisine on an Emilia Romagna cycling holiday

Emilia Romagna Cuisine

After a day’s cycling, there’s nothing better than a good meal. Eat like a king in Emilia Romagna’s fantastic restaurants, start with an assortment of salumi and local mortadella paired with a sparkling red Lambrusco wine from the region. A must have is the classic tagliatelle al ragù – Bolognese with tagliatelle – topped with aged parmigiano and paired with a fine Italian red wine.
