Modena Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Situated at the crossroads between the Via Emilia and the Brenner route, this large industrial city in the Emilia-Romagna region specialises in the production of shoes, cars and railways. The old district remains quiet and peaceful, huddled around its superb cathedral and dotted with large arcaded squares. Here, numerous inns serve regional specialities such as zamponi (stuffed pigs’ trotters), accompanied by a glass of sparkling red Lambrusco wine.
