Acetaia Villa San Donnino

Production of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and Balsamic Condiment. The Villa of Vinegar in Modena On March 14th 1910 the project of the Villa was submitted on behalf of Lieutenant Claudio San Donnino. It was later to become an exquisite example of Emilia Romagna "liberty". Frescoes and decorations by Aroldo Bonzaghi (1887-1918) with evocative and voluptuous "dannunzian" allegories generate a magical atmosphere. In that extraordinary place, Davide and Cristina invite you to taste special products of Villa San Donnino.

We approached the driveway to the estate and the iron gates were closed. We knew they were supposed to be open, and in fact saw a tour bus parked past the gates. I saw a call box next to the gate and got out of the car and pressed the button. As soon as I did the gates started to open. I quickly jumped in my car and drove in.
A guide was there to greet us at the end of the driveway. She brought us in to one of the barrel storage rooms and proceeded to tell us all about the process. Afterwards we were treated to a tasting of several different balsamic vinegars. You can purchase their products on site.

For someone who loves food this stop is a must. When you are lucky you can participate to a complimentary tour and learn how Balsamic Vinegar is made. Best is later the tasting. We bought after that much more than originally planned but this is the best part: extending the tour by using their products at home.

Il ritrovamento di un cospicuo numero di mummie nella cripta dimenticata della Chiesa di Roccapelago ci aiuta a capire come si viveva anticamente in montagna! La Proloco di Rocca organizza una visita avvincente dei luoghi e dei ritrovamenti con l’entusiasmo del volontariato!!! Davvero una bella cosa che merita crescita e successo

Duomo di Modena

Reviewed By JoJoYoga73 - Sydney, Australia

We absolutely loved our tour of Modena!! It’s a must if you’re travelling in Northern Italy! We were with a small tour group and visited: Ferrari Museum in Maranello, the original Balsamic Vinyard( like no other Balsamic I’ve ever tasted!!), the Ferrari Museum in Modena, the House of Pavarotti ❤️ and we finished up at the Lambrusco Vinyard. It was the best priced tour of Modena and the Ferrari Museums by far.
WE LOVED IT!!

Panini Motor Museum

Reviewed By DavidIanL

Wanted to visit the car collection and the cheese production was an added bonus. We emailed ahead, problem with phoning, and arranged the shorter aging room information talk and a small tasting. €5 entry which was reasonable. Martine, the guide, was an excellent guide and answered all questions. We were then left to visit the car collection on our own. Masserrati and others, along with tractors and motorbikes. A good place if you are a car nerd. A good afternoon spent at Hombres.

Our family (kids aged 5, 8 and 11) all thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Deborah was very helpful and informative. The tour was just the right length and perfect for the whole family. The spread at the end (we went for the 15€ option) was magnificent. You tell that they are all really proud of their produce! Highly recommended.

Casa Museo Luciano Pavarotti

On occasion of EXPO 2015, Luciano Pavarotti Foundation opens extraordinarily the doors of Casa Pavarotti, transformed into House Museum through the set-up of a path that will allow to know the man and the artist Luciano Pavarotti.

Reviewed By physicsgeek - Beavercreek, Ohio

Well laid out tour of Pavarotti's home he built for himself and his family upon his retirement and prior to his death. Three floors of interesting information about the man and his art plus his wine cellar. There are costumes from the roles he played in his operas, music fills the house, and the tour provides a nice perspective of the man. Audio guide is included in the price. Definitely worth a visit!

Rocca di Vignola

On a sandstone spur, this fortress stands over the Panaro valley. Documented back to 1178, it is one of the most interesting examples of fortification architecture in Emilia. In the fourteenth century it belonged to the Este family of Ferrara, but in 1401 they donated it to the Uguccione Contrari family who turned it into a refined mansion. In 1577, the Fortress was handed over to the Boncompagni family. Purchased by the Cassa di Risparmio di Vignola bank in 1965, it was handed over to the Vignola Foundation in 1998. The massive quadrilateral structure spread over five floors, with three corner towers – Nonantola, Donne and Pennello – is encircled by projections for plunging defence, typical of the XV century. In the courtyard, the small fortress stands to the left and open the Contrari and Grassoni halls. Winter opening times. Week days: 9:00/12:00 – 14:30/18:00. 0/12:00 – 15:30/19:00Holidays: 10:30/13:00 – 15:30/19:00. Closed on Mondays. Free admission

Nice attraction and worth visiting. Great example of a 15th century military fortress with even earlier origins to the 8th century. Lots to explore and plenty of stairs to climb and descend. Wonderful examples of preserved frescoes and great views of the surrounding area. There's no cost to enter and they supply an audio guide for free too.

Test Drive Ferrari and Lamborghini, drive these supercars on public roads or race tracks. rent car and driving courses

Reviewed By Martin P - Santiago

I rented medium length two trips with a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. The presentation of the vehicle was impeccable: clean outside, clean inside, everything looked nice and clean and tidy. The car looked new from all sides. Service at the office was good also. My complaint though, is that I felt treated in a sort of standardized way, with a "hurry up approach". For me (and I guess for most of the people that come here, who can only dream of a Ferrari), going to Maranello is sort of a pilgrimage. And being able to drive! one of its superb machines is almost a religious experience. That the codriver and the rest of the staff treat you as just "one more tourist" and push you to hurry up, get in the car, drive and move on; kind of kills part of the mystique.

Lago Santo Modenese

Reviewed By Gabriele G - Nonantola, Italy

Very nice place, for all seasons! In winter you can do skitouring and ice-climbing, in summer just walk around the lake or do climbing in the nearest area of Lago Baccio. I suggest you to have lunch at Rifugio Vittoria.
