90-meter high, the “Ghirlandina” the bell tower of the Cathedral of Modena is the uncontested symbol of the town. Every Modenese person just loves it and feels at home as soon as he sees it.
Same as for the Sanctuary of the Madonna of San Luca, the beloved “San Luca” for the Bolognese people, which is kind of a compass on the way from Bologna to the South-Eastern side of the Bolognese Hills, and Zola Predosa, wine-city.
Bologna and Modena, two neighbouring and historically adversary cities that together form an extraordinary culinary duo. For typical semi-sparkling wines: Bologna’s Pignoletto and Modena’s Lambrusco. For Emilian homemade pasta, Tagliatelle with Bolognese sauce and Modena’s Rosette, for local charcuterie, Bologna Mortadella and Modena’s Zampone and Cotechino cured meat of pure pork .. Just to mention a few!
