Reggio Emilia is located in the heart of one of the most hospitable regions of Italy: Emilia-Romagna, known for the friendliness of its inhabitants, the high quality of social services and the widespread prosperity.
Emilia-Romagna shares Reggio’s best features and offers visitors a wide choice of tourist destinations thanks to the variety of its territory that ranges from river Po flat horizons to the 2,000 feet height Apennine ridge.
Reggio Emilia is a region rich in precious ancient castles and churches characterized by historical traces of the Canossa dynasty and the figure of the Great Countess Matilda.The established political and civic vocation of Reggio Emilia is the origin of one of the central episodes of the Italian national identity: the birth of the Tricolour flag on 7 January 1797.
The national flag was proclaimed during a founding meeting of The Cispadana Republic.
The famous “first courses” of Reggio cuisine, cured meats like the notorious prosciutto, sparkling wines, balsamic vinegar and Parmigiano-Reggiano are the ambassadors of a province that lies in the well-known Italian food valley.
Reggio Emilia is the perfect town for a pleasant holiday.
