Guide To the Bologna Province

The Province of Bologna includes a large part of Emilia and a number of communes belonging to the Romagna areas (Borgo Tossignano, Casalfiumanese, Castel del Rio, Dozza, Fontanelice, Imola, Mordano) and the territory is in large part hilly, crossed by rivers and streams tributaries of the Po.

The province is mainly hilly with many rivers and tributaries of the Po river criss-crossing the the whole area. The southern portion is hillier than its northern counterpart which was once actually a coastline and consequently lower and flatter. The highest peak is the Corno delle Scale, reaching an altitude of just under two thousand metres.

Bologna City Guide

Bologna is the capital and largest city of the region of Emilia-Romagna and is a stunning city, considered, by many Italians, to be second to Venice for its beauty.


This is a relatively large town with good facilities and some interesting historical sites and buildings.  The Rocca Sforzesca (castle) was built during the reign of Girolamo Riario and Caterina Sforza.

Sasso Marconi

This village was named after Guglielmo Marconi, inventor of the radio, who was born in the city of Bologna.


This town sits at an elevated position on the Apennines between two valleys. The town centre is the Piazza Armaciotto de Ramozzotti which is built in a rhomboid shape with a monument in the centre to honour the victims of all conflicts.

Castel del Rio

Believed to date back to the 5th century BC but the current town was actually built in the 5th century AD. The small town has a nice medieval historical centre and nearby there are the ruins of three castles, Valmaggior, Cantagallo and Castellaccio.
