If you are planning to tour  Europe, you definitely should  consider the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. It may be the only region of Italy named for a road, one constructed by the Ancient Romans almost 2200 years ago. This article describes in brief the Romagna subregion, its many tourist attractions, local food, and local wine. A companion article presents Emilia, the inland western "half" of the region.

Our Romagna tour follows the highway from east to west, veering slightly southward along the way. You may start by visiting Rocca Sforzesca (Sforza Castle) in the village of Dozza whose wine shop, Enoteco Regionale, has a great collection of local wines. Formula One auto racing fans will want to visit the town of Imola in the middle of April. Additional local attractions include shopping for fancy ceramics and eating at San Domenico's, a world-class restaurant with a three thousand item wine list.

Pottery fanciers will enjoy the city of Faenza, a center for faience pottery since the Twelfth Century. Can you guess what is displayed at the Museo delle Ceramiche? If you're the kind of person who likes spas be sure to visit the neighboring city of Bagno di Romagna with its hot springs.

Ravenna, north of the highway, was once the capital of the Roman Empire. Check out the Basilica di San Vitale (Church of Saint Vitale) home to famous mosaics. If you are in the mood you can visit a historic mausoleum and the tomb of that great Italian poet Dante. For some reason Ravenna has many sites with historic mosaics.

Rimini situated on the Adriatic coast is a major European holiday destination, and is really crowded during the high season. Its Grand Hotel was featured in Fellini's 1973 movie Amaracord.

It may be no accident that the founder of Italian cuisine Pellegrino Artusi was born here. Be sure to see our companion article I Love Touring Italy - The Romagna Subregion for a sample menu and more information on Romagna wines as well as an in-depth examination of Romagna's tourist attractions. It is the home of Albana di Romagna DOCG, Italy's first white DOCG wine. The G stands for Garantita. While one might well guess what that word is supposed to mean, many feel that this honor was far from deserved. I have never tasted this particular wine, but from my readings I have no great desire to do so, except to set the matter straight.
