Emilia Romagna – Territory

The territory of Emilia Romagna is mostly flat, but it also includes the mountain area of the Apennines, with many natural parks, habitat of several endangered species including deer, wolves, foxes and squirrels. These green areas and the paths of the ancient Via Francigena are perfect for trekking, mountain biking and horse riding tours. In the eastern part, Emilia Romagna gently slopes toward the Adriatic Sea and encounters the mouth of the river Po creating long sandy beaches with shallow waters. The Adriatic coast is a very popular seaside destination, mostly known for its lively nightlife, for the vaste offer of hotel facilities (from very little hotel to luxury resorts) and good seafood restaurants.
