Cycling in Emilia-Romagna region of Italy

Emilia-Romagna is the heart of Italy

Experience the essence of Italy’s dolce vita on a bicycle tour through Emilia-Romagna. Steeped in rich history, the region is a treasure trove of cultural wonders, from the imposing fortresses and elegant medieval architecture of Parma and Modena, to the vibrant energy of Bologna, where red-brick palaces and prominent towers punctuate the skyline.

Emilia-Romagna is renowned for its contributions to art, cuisine, music, and social progress, making it a cradle of Italian identity and innovation. The region is home to iconic Italian dishes like Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, traditional balsamic vinegar, and handmade tortellini. The city of Modena is the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari and Luciano Pavarotti, epitomizing the region’s fusion of automotive excellence and operatic prowess.

The region’s cooperative movement, inspired by figures like Don Luigi Sturzo, led to the establishment of worker-owned enterprises that continue to thrive. Bologna’s iconic “Red Bologna” era, marked by progressive policies, student activism, and cultural revolutions, further solidified the region’s reputation as a hub of social change.

On a bicycle, you will explore Emilia-Romagna’s landscapes and towns first hand, from the rolling hills of the Apennines to the Adriatic coastline and the flat Po River Delta, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, enjoying the diversity of the region to its fullest.
