Modena is an ancient town in Emilia-Romagna, 40km northwest of Bologna. It is a charming place, with lovely arched porticos and a magnificent main square. We have now visited Modena twice and highly recommend it, even if you only have a few hours as a day trip from Bologna.

It is home to Balsamic Vinegar, and there are countless places where you can taste and buy this delicious product. The region surrounding Modena is home to the factories of some of the famous Italian car makers, such as Ferrari and Maserati, which gives the town its nick-name of "the capital of engines".

    Great page Sue, I imagine the Duomo Facade was under scaffolding on your visit as well? We stopped in Modena on Monday returning from Toscana. Dissapointed not to see the facade, but the great lunch we had in this gastronomic town made up for it! ciao
