- This monument absolutely blows you away soon as you approach it. I had no plans to visit any attractions whilst in Modena but so glad I decided to take a walk one of the attraction highlights of my trip!Written June 20, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This was our second trip here. It was a great experience in a wonderful building and setting. The Balsamic is amazing. We bought some of the Gelatina- a syrupy thick Balsamic. FANTASTIC.Written November 15, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We had a fabulous hour on this tour - even the children (6,10 and 12) were entertained enough! The history and the process was explained thoroughly but without being lengthy. The tour was set out really well, moving through different areas and had a great pace. All staff were super friendly and knowledgable.
I never knew how exciting balsamic vinegar was! Or how many different flavours it could have.
The fact that the tour was free was a huge draw for us as we didn’t expect our children to particularly enjoy it - but they did it find it interesting and we even got them to try some!Written August 14, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Piazza Grande is the cultural and religious center of Modena. This square cannot be reached by private car because it is located in a limited traffic area. On this square there is the entire south side of the Duomo (Cathedral) with the beautiful Porta Regia (main door of the church) with two impressive lions supporting the columns. The Cathedral is dominated by the 86 meter high Ghirlandina bell tower, symbol of the town. Perpendicular to the Cathedral there is the Town Hall characterized by a large portico and a clock tower. A square of great interest and beauty that cannot be missed if you are in Modena.Written October 19, 2023
- The Galleria d’Este is a must see. There is never anyone in there but it has been brilliantly rehung by the current director who has got it all right. The lighting is good, the selection of works is of very high quality and it is not so big that it is exhausting, so that you can take your time on each work. Don’t miss the stunning Bernini portrait of Francesco d’Este. And it is well worth going to Sassuolo to see the frescoes in the d’Este palace there, including the wonderful gallery by Boulanger, one of the best unknown masterpieces in Italy.Written June 28, 2019
- Great view of the city of Modena. We were a little disappointed when we reached the top and saw windows obstructing the view but the staff member quickly told us we could open them for photos. It is one of the easier climbs since the stairs are not spiral. We reserved the time slot visit and entrance was timely and easy. You have to pay in cash so beware of that.Written November 25, 2023
- We visited the markets during a day trip from Bologna via train. This is a great place to taste and buy balsamic vinegar. The vendors are very friendly and accommodating with our limited Italian! There are many stalls selling fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat, seafood, desserts (e.g cannoli) , wine etc etc. We found a small shop that made the local specialty tortellini in brodo (broth). We watched the cook make it. It was served in a takeaway cup and it was delicious! The cannoli from Delizie was amazing and excellent value for €3. The markets are popular with the locals, so consider coming here to buy food if you are self-catering. There are plenty of dining options for lunch and dinner.Written September 19, 2023
- a beautiful property with barrels of balsamic vinegars. during the visit, we are treated to countless tasting sessions.
one thing you should know - all the balsamic vinegars are fairly viscous, ranging from sweet to sour and oftentimes mixed. unlike the watery stuff we are commonly acquainted to for salads outside of italy.
visit is free, and you can buy the products from the onsite storeWritten November 11, 2023
- It is a well maintained museum tucked away with a good amount to see; entry is free with voluntary donations accepted. Worth the visit for car, motorbike and tractor enthusiasts!Written October 9, 2022
- This is a huge, stunning building which dominates Piazza Roma. Once the residence of the duke, it is now a navy academy.Written January 8, 2022
