Itinerary

Day 1 – Welcome to the beautiful Italian city of Bologna

When you arrive in Bologna from the airport, you will check into your hotel in the centre of the city and settle into your luxurious accommodation. After you have settled in, the group will head into Bologna city centre, the capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, for a day of nice quintessential Italian activities. Additionally, you will visit the historical town centre of Piazza Maggiore, where you will enjoy a mini gastronomic tour of the town’s exciting food district, concentrated between Caprarie Street and Orefici Street. In this district nestled between the two towers, you will find the best Bolognese you have ever tried – this is a food experience you certainly won’t forget. In the evening, we will eat in the heart of Bologna at the exclusive and traditional restaurant Carducci, where you will delight your palate with an array of local delicacies.

Day 2 - Driving on the road of 1000 curves

Either fly into Bologna on the day 1, and spend the evening in Bologna, or fly into Bologna on the day 2 and receive your choice of car at your hotel in the morning after your arrival. The group will be briefed on the tour and cars after breakfast. The tour then starts with a run along the historic regional park of Montesole, an area that embodies the beautiful rolling green hills and valleys typical of the Bologna Apennines. You will then head directly into the Apennino Tosco-Emiliano national park in Northern Italy. We then continue on down the famously beautiful Porrettana SS64 road connecting Bologna to Pistoia that is widely recognised as the road with 1000 curves. Our first pit-stop will be at a traditional Italian restaurant where we will enjoy the typical Bolognese food of the region. From here, we will continue scenic SS64 road towards Rocchetta Mattei, a medieval castle situated in the northern part of the Tosco-Emiliano Apennines, in the province of Bologna. Just a few kilometres drive away, down the tumbling hills and curvy roads of the valley below, towards the medieval Borgo La Scola, we will stop and explore the spectacular landscapes at the Santuario della Beata Vergine before continuing the SS64.

As we continue down the SS64 road, we will pass the town of Poretta Terme which is famous for its natural thermal springs which date back to the Roman era, and follow the road down past the beautiful falling waterfalls of Le Cascate del Dardagna. Following the curving road until we arrive at Lake Scaffaiolo in the provinces of Pistoia and Modena, where we will have a little break at the scenic restaurant Rifugio del Cavone to enjoy a drink or bite to eat. We then drive up through the highest mountain in the Northern Apennines via the Monte Cimone pass, elevated at an eye-watering 2,165m above sea level. The tour then continues on, through more spell-binding roads and exquisite natural beauty down into the Modena hills, before finally arriving at the town of Castelvetro di Modena, 19 miles west of Bologna. As one of the most beautiful and medieval villages in the Modena area, we will stop to have a nice break and Americano in the spectacular castle terrace.
