If you are looking for peace, relaxation, nature and beauty and you are in Bologna or Modena you cannot miss a visit to some beautiful villages in the area stretching from the flat valley of Emilia to the rolling hills that introduce the first peaks of the Apennines.
Today I take you to Savignano, a village right on the border with the Colli Bolognesi area. This town will be the point of departure for your light hiking trip of one day through scenic overlooks, woods and vineyards.
Every year, in fact, during the month of May you can participate in a unique half-day experience called “MAGNALONGA” organized by the Municipality of Savignano. A nice walk of about 9 kilometers up and down the hills discovering traditional food and different kinds of wine.
“Magnalogna” this year takes place in Savignano, near Modena, on Sunday May 19th 2019. People attending this trekking adventure will meet up in the center of this town in the morning and will be divided into small groups for a walk of about 5.5 miles with 7 stops during which they could taste typical local food accompanied by wines of the area. During the hiking it is possible to stop and listen to good live music and discover local wineries and admire terrific views.
So have a break and, while visiting Modena or Bologna, stop and relax.
Explore, walk, smell, taste and enjoy the surrounding of cities centers with me by your side.
If you are in Emilia Romagna for a couple of days you can also learn how to prepare traditional fresh eggs pasta with a private cooking class in a winery the day before the “Magnalonga” event, on Saturday May 18th!
