Traditional Castelcanafurone village, view with mountains, Emilia Romagna,Italy.


An artistic and musical journey

Routinely eclipsed by Tuscany, the Veneto, and Rome, meet Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region. Tucked between the Apennines and the River Po, is a dazzling region that played a key role in the Renaissance.

Visit the region’s exquisite ducal court cities—Bologna, Parma, Mantua, Ravenna, Urbino; and, while touring their elaborate palazzos, hear the stories of the leading families who financed many major Renaissance artists. View the astounding frescoes that abound here in monasteries, basilicas and public buildings. Plus, we’ll watch Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese being made, attend a cooking class in a palace and learn about majolica earthenware in the town of Faenza. Join us!
