If it has happened or it will happen to you to go around Modena and you are a person that take care of details, you will not miss to see a sign located outside the windows of some shops, bars or restaurant, which over time has hit me. I’m talking about the signs where it was written: “Bottega Storica dell’Emilia Romagna” (The Historical Shop of Emilia Romagna), but what are they?
Autumn is the best time to enjoy warm colors, don’t you think so?
If I think about autumn, I immediately imagine the various shades of red, orange, yellow and brown. Well, for me this is a season that kidnaps and gives you the opportunity to continue to go out, especially in sunny days, to admire the changing of nature… and the foliage is a wonderful sight!
Over time, I have identified my places to go in Modena and in its province, to dive myself into these wonderful visions and “fill up” with incredible autumn colors: here I tell you which are my 4 favorite places to admire this phenomenon!
Estense Gallery in Modena is one of the oldest and most important National Galleries of Italy where the collection of arts of Este family, the dukes of the city, are exposed. A real gem, a place to get lost for few hours, admiring the magnificence of a past that has left its mark. This is a visit that I really loved and that gave me the opportunity to learn more about Este.
I’ll tell you then my experience between the rooms of one of the oldest and most important National Galleries of my country.
This was not the first time I visited the rooms of “Palazzo Comunale” (the City Hall of Modena). I was there in different occasions mostly celebratory and formal like weddings. Perhaps many people don’t know that it’s possible to visit these rooms almost every day of the week and the entrance is free. Therefore, a visit here is a “must” both for tourists and for citizens 🙂
I discovered the existence of Luciano Pavarotti’s home museum almost by chance. I was curious and I decided to visit it.
Christmas has arrived also this year bringing with him its magical atmosphere.
The Albinelli Market is absolutely one of the visits to do if you decide to come to Modena. It is one of my favorite places in the city that I try to visit as often as possible. Usually I go there on Saturday morning, when I have more time, both for shopping and for enjoying the magic atmosphere that you can breathe inside. This market is “the place” of tradition, where the Modenese values of culture and gastronomy find their highest expression.
