Italy – Cathedral, Torre Civica and Piazza Grande, Modena

The Italian city known for race cars, gastronomy and artistic treasures

Modena is a medium-sized city in the heart of northern Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region. Its medieval city center is among the most lovely in Italy, and its 12th-century duomo, or cathedral, is one of Italy’s best Romanesque churches. The cathedral, its Gothic bell tower called Torre della Ghirlandina, and Piazza Grande, the main square where these monuments are found make up a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Modena is the hometown of the late tenor Luciano Pavarotti and legendary carmaker Enzo Ferrari. The area is also known around the world for its balsamic vinegar and cheese production. Its rich history, gastronomic traditions and links to sports cars and opera music mean there is something for nearly everyone in this charming city in the Po River Valley. In fact, the tourist office of Modena uses as its slogan, Art, Food and Cars.
