From trekking in the Apennines to dives in the Food Museums, from castles to spas, from bicycle tours along the Po River to tastings in wine cellars. With Visit Emilia, the journey in the Land of Slow Mix takes the form of endless experiences between Parma, Piacenza and Reggio Emilia.


Discover the cultural riches of Emilia
In Emilia, you can immerse yourself in a fairytale narrated by 50 majestic castles: the Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza and the Matildic Castles; visit the numerous historical theatres and places where the music of Giuseppe Verdi still resounds; discover the main cities of art, Parma, Piacenza and Reggio Emilia, their immense cultural heritages, the small villages scattered between the plains and the Apennines, and experience the authentic welcome of the operators of the Culture & Castles network.


Start your journey into the taste of Emilia
Emilia is the destination of conviviality and the place where excellent products and home specialities are invented, produced and handed down. Here you can savour more than 15 typical traditional products recognised with the PDO or PGI mark, immerse yourself in the production of 266 Parmigiano Reggiano and 20 Grana Padano cheese dairies, discover 132 delicatessens dedicated to Prosciutto di Parma, 13 to Salumi DOP from Piacenza, 14 to Salame Felino, 23 to Culatello di Zibello, and experience the history of 26 producers of the Consortium for Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia. To toast there are 147 PDO wine cellars, but also 7 starred restaurants. Discover all the operators in the Food & Wine network.


Immerse yourself in the nature of Emilia
Allow yourself to be embraced by nature in Emilia, with its varied landscapes, which from the plains washed by the Po River lead you to the woods and peaks of the Parco Nazionale dell'Appennino Tosco Emiliano, a UNESCO MaB Biosphere Reserve. Pedal along the Great River, navigate its waters, stop to photograph fiery sunsets and winter mists. Admire the particular viewing stones, such as Pietra Parcellara and Pietra di Bismantova, special places important for the history and biodiversity of the area. Travel on foot, by bike or on horseback along historical paths such as the Via Francigena, the Via degli Abati and the Via Matildica del Volto Santo, relax in the precious thermal springs of Salsomaggiore Terme and enjoy the slow life with our Terme & Outdoor network operators.
