Discovering the Via Emilia
The so-called “Land of Motors” in Emilia-Romagna is an area that stretches along the Via Emilia, a millennium-old Roman road that gave its name to the whole region.
This ancient road running across the Emilia-Romagna region from Piacenza to Rimini has often heard the ear-splitting roar of some of the most beautiful and iconic racing cars of the Motor Valley.
Built on the initiative of Roman consul Marcus Aemilius Lepidus in 187 BC to link the Via Flaminia, a consular road leading from Rome to Rimini, to the Via Postumia, running from Piacenza to Aquileia, today the Via Emilia (also known as State highway SS9) has become the ultimate travel guide for a slow-paced holiday.
During your journey, you will discover the most important cities in Emilia-Romagna, each of them adding to the mix of culture, nature, and fine dining that defines this beautiful region.
