Emilia-Romagna is one of Europe's wealthiest and most developed areas, stretching between the Po Valley in the north and the Apennine Mountains in the south. This is a land of diverse people and diverse landscapes. The striking contrast between the mountainous areas and the long Adriatic coastline offers some of Italy's most spectacular views. The region has a rich cultural and artistic heritage, with a vibrant music scene that is quickly gaining international prestige. Emilia-Romagna produces a range of fine wines as well as a variety of culinary delights, including gold-colored egg pastas like tortellini and tagliatelle. Farther from the tourism-driven coastal areas, the region features a tranquil countryside dotted with parks and nature preserves, ideal for those looking to spend some time hiking, horseback riding, or cycling on their holiday.
