- Setting Description:
- The Region of Emilia Romagna lies between the river Po, the longest in Italy, to the north, and the Apennine mountains to the south. It is considered one of the most fertile regions in Italy for its relatively mild climate influenced by the air from the Adriatic coast. You can experience four distinct seasons in this area, from snowy cold winters to lovely warm summers. Those who love to ski and hike will find the mountains very close by; while those who love the sun and sea will enjoy the longest beach in Europe on the Romagna coast in towns like Rimini, Riccione, and Cattolica, known as the Romagna Riviera. Wellness spas and thermal baths are also found in this region.
