The Faenza Brisighella Itinerary
Faenza dates back to Roman times and stands on a crossroads of great cultural interest, between Bologna, Rimini, Florence and Ravenna. Full of historical remains from various eras – including the Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical eras – this town boasts a consolidated tradition of world-famous maiolica art, which is much appreciated on the international contemporary art scene. This area boasts stunning scenery and a well developed network of holiday farms that goes hand-in-hand with the tourist attractions offered by the city of art.
A visit to Brisighella means discovering a village and an area immersed in unspoilt natural surroundings, which are a joy in every season. This ancient medieval and spa village in the Lamone Valley, on the Tuscan-Romagnolo Apennines, is characterised by three famous rocky hills, on which stand the Manfredian fortress (XIV century), the Monticino sanctuary (XVIII century) and the so-called ‘clock tower’ (XIX century). A welcoming land, full of traditions, wonderful flavours, stunning architecture and natural beauty that has received some of the most prestigious awards (including ‘Italy’s Most Beautiful Villages’ award, the Slow City award and the ‘Orange Flag’ from the Italian Touring Club), confirming the excellent standards and high quality of life here.
