Getting around

We suggest at least 3:
1. Ravenna, to appreciate the Bizantine mosaics, visit the center and taste the piadina romagnola in Ca’ de Ven. In summertime also a swim in Marina di Ravenna.

2. Dozza-Imola, to see the mural paintings and the castle with its precious Regional Winery in Dozza and visit Imola center, better in market days.

3. Brisighella-Faenza, to stroll in the medieval cozy village of Brisighella and see Faenza center, better in market days.
