    Via Emilia (in latin VIA AEMILIA) is a Roman road built at the beginning of the 2nd Century BC just north of the Appennines range of mountains. It was the connection between a line of Roman forts that later developed in todays cities of Emilia Romagna Region.
    On this road more than 2000 years of history have left their traces, and driving on Via Emilia is really a good starting point to understand Emilia Romagna and Italy.
    But it is important to be well prepared in advance. Today via Emilia is a busy commercial road a bit longer than 250 kms, and it is necessary to know what to look for if you want to understand the fading signs of the past in the middle of the very strong signs of the present.
    All the cities along via Emilia are worth a visit (Rimini, Cesena, Forlì, Bologna, Modena, Reggio Emilia, Parma, Fidenza, Piacenza). But it is sometimes possible to see the straight lines of the roman division of the fields, that are still there, and imagine that once upon a time everything here was covered in thick forest.

    Played here whilst touring Northern Italy. Run by the same company that runs the Salsomaggiore Terme Golf Club. A friendly, beautiful golf club that was fun to play with interesting challenges and rewarding holes that allowed two slightly high handicappers to come off the course feeling they still wanted to play more!
    The reception staff were all very helpful and friendly, speaking English fluently. We felt slightly wimpish initially hiring a buggy, but once the mercury hit 32 C we felt justified in using a buggy.
    Would happily play here again, great course, immaculate condition, lovely club house with friendly staff.

    We had a tour with Davide this August and it was just perfect. We brought along our little son of 2 years old in a child seat and this was an amazing way of getting around the surrounding on.
    We went to a parmesan cheese factory, a Castle for a wine tasting and a micro-brewery for lunch. All of this was not a problem with the little guy. Also worth mentioning was that Davide was watching him while we were having lunch - so the offer should almost state that "babysitting" is also included from the guide :)

    We rented two bicycles to ride to Parco naturale regionale dei Boschi di Carrega. Bikes worked great, had to work hard to get to the top, but definitely worth it. Michele treated us right, fantastic service. Highly recommend!

    I went on a 2 hour Ebike tour over the rolling hills of Torrechiara with a group of friend led by Guido and let me say that it was an unforgettable experience. With some speedy downhills on grassy and wooded areas and some pitstops on top of the hills to catch a view of the scenery covered in the pink blanket of sunset, I can truly say it was the perfect culmination to an Italian getaway. With high tech ebikes and the final downhill ending at the jaw dropping 15th century medieval Italian castle, this Ebike tours is one for the books. Make sure to ask for Guido, a real Parma local, to ensure a humorous, athletic if desired, and fact filled journey in the region. Equally make sure to do it in the early evening to catch the colors of the sky which will also build a real appetite before eating at the restaurant located in the court yard of the aforementioned castle. I couldn’t recommend this tour more.
