Americans are discovering a place Europeans have known for centuries - lovely Emilia-Romagna, home of spaghetti bolognese, Pavarotti, Parma ham, Lambrusco, lasagna, macaroni, balsamic vinegar and much more. Now fully redesigned, this new edition of the only guide available to this essentially Italian region contains the most up-to-the-minute practical information and listings, along with color photographs and maps. Cadogan's best-selling authors unearth treasures to compare with those of Tuscany and Lombardy: visit beautiful Bologna, a city whose historic center is considered one of the best preserved and maintained in Italy, and the pretty mountain valleys that lead to the Apennines. Rimini, Italy's vast, madcap, international resort is explored, as is San Marino, the world's smallest and oldest republic, nestling in the region's corner. This guide uncovers a region people know better than they think.
