At EMILIA FOOD LOVE, we have always liked to think that if Italy were a body, Emilia would be its beating heart. A sophisticated tourist destination that welcomes thousands of people each year in search of history, nature, art, music, scents and flavours. It is both a starting point and a destination, but also much more. Its fortunate position - a few miles from Milan and Bologna and little more than two hours from the architectural sights of Turin, the canals of Venice and the art of Florence, midway between the mountains and the sea and astride the great Po river - makes it the perfect starting point for a journey in which all of Italy is sure to win your heart.
We at Animabuona come in: we design and plan the ideal tours to suit you, your habits and your wishes. Our packages are full of long or short trips, and all of them celebrate our great food.
Exploring the historic Via Aemilia by car, by bike on the many bike paths, or even on foot along the mountain and hillside trails, stopping to eat in a home-style trattoria to experience our unrivalled concept of hospitality first-hand as you find yourself overwhelmed by all of the aromas and flavours, and visiting our numerous castles and art cities. Emilia is all this and more. Getting to know the area will be an unforgettable experience and we cannot wait to be your guides.
Stroll through gentle hills or hike on mountain trails, experience ancient vinegar cellars, and castles that whisper the stories of medieval legends and, of course, of Emilia’s outstanding products. They are all just waiting to be discovered and tasted, to the sound of traditional folk stories. Whether you will be travelling solo, with your family or your friends, or if you're ready to make new acquaintances, we have your trip to Emilia gift-wrapped in one of our packages.
It will be unforgettable because Emilia is ready to reveal all her secrets.
And it will be easy because we will take care of all the details.
It’s as though Emilia and its plains were born to welcome people and guide them to the sea, the mountains, and the city with its thousands of voices. Around the world, Emilia is often referred to as the ‘Food Valley’, because its top-quality products are so abundant that counting them seems to be an impossible feat. Allow us to do it for you, and - just like Emilia - we will welcome you and guide you on a journey of discovery of its delicacies as well as its nature, culture and history..
Sleeping in a bed & breakfast surrounded by nature, visiting a traditional cheese factory or old-fashioned vinegar cellar, strolling through the Matildiche hills or dining in the shade of castles...
This is what we call ‘being Emilian’ and, for us, it means living life to the fullest, appreciating and capturing beauty, and trusting our senses. Looking, listening, smelling and tasting everything that makes the land of Emilia unique in the world: a spot where you will have extraordinary experiences.
