Happy Valentine’s Day from the romantic villages #inEmiliaRomagna!
Let you get carried in a walk among cobbled streets still permeated by ancient perfumes, in company of your soul mate illuminated by suggestive oil lights, perhaps sipping a sweet wine from our hills, or stopping to admire the breathtaking views on Emilia-Romagna’s landscape from above.
Verucchio, authentic hamlet in Rimini’s hinterland just few miles from the Adriatic Coast, will give you the perfect location for a very romantic Valentine’s Day. The Malatesta Fortress, also called the “rock fortress” due to its position on a rocky spur, offers a great view on Emilia-Romagna’s landscape, giving you the occasion for a romantic kiss. Verucchio also offers many restaurants and wine bars to taste local wine & food, so what are you waiting for? Take a car and visit this pretty village!
Ambling through the narrow cobbled alleys of Castell’Arquato, one of Italy’s loveliest towns, you will get to the Visconti Fortress dominated by a great tower, from which you can enjoy the best view on the Arda valley. In the oldest square of the village the Municipal Winery is the perfect place for a glass of wine and a dish of typical Piacenza’s cured meats.
This picturesque Romagna’s hamlet, one of the Borghi più belli d’Italia, certainly should not miss in our list of the perfect destinations for Valentine’s Day! Have you ever walked the Via degli Asini? If the answer is no, you can’t help but take your loved one and take a walk along this unique path: an elevated covered street, in the past defensive walkway, then route bringing home the birocciai and their donkeys (hence the name of the street) from the Vena del Gesso park outside the village.
Very suggestive and romantic both day and night, this way will create the perfect atmosphere for your Valentine’s Day!
A few miles from Bologna you can find one of the most interesting medieval villages in Emlia-Romagna, located on the ridge of a hill overlooking the Sellustra valley and gently descends to the Via Emilia. In Dozza, among houses with rainbow colors and works of street art, you can enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day, including a visit to the Sforza Fortress and the Regional Winery to taste the best wines of Emilia-Romagna!
