Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Emilia-Romagna offers some interesting places to stay, especially in the regional capital, Bologna, which is famed for its food. Other important cities in the region are Parma and Modena.

The region is named after the old Roman road, Via Emilia, which runs through it, connecting Piacenza with Rimini. The region is bounded by the River Po in the north and the slopes of the Appenines in the south. It is a fertile, prosperous patchwork of fields, hills and plains, with most of its major centres strung out along the Via Emilia.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Emilia-Romagna offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: pensioni, alberghi, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out. Among our longstanding favourites are: Albergo Cappello and Relais Varnello.
