Reggio Emilia Travel Guide

Reggio Emilia Travel Guide, Reggio nell Emilia, Italy (B)

Reggio Emilia is a north Italian town sandwiched between Parma and Modena It’s primarily famous for its education method developed after WW2 called the ‘Reggio Emilia Approach’ (which is funnily enough why we were there), and it’s parmesan cheese. Which was also why we were there.

We arrived via our trusty rental car for what would become two nights in this wonderful city full of culture, architecture and delicious, delicious food. The tourist traps and crowds in Reggio are few and far between, and the inner city offers an authentic Italian experience. Mrs. R&R and I wandered the city while my mother-in-law (and travelling companion) fulfilled her mission at the early childhood education centre.

We arrived by rental car (see Verona blog for info), but it’s also possible to get to Reggio Emilia by train or bus from one of the larger cities. There is an airport, but it’s for private and club use only.
