On the border between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, Brisighella has been certified as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, a city of wine, a city of olive oil and a slow city. All these certifications mean that this surprising village has decided to focus on quality tourism to promote its natural and architectural beauty and excellent gastronomic products.

Visiting Brisighella is like diving into a kaleidoscope of colours and flavours no matter the season, a visit to the town is always unique. Brisighella stands on three gypsum pillars, which host the Manfredian Fortress, the Clock Tower and the Monticino Sanctuary; and is located in the Vena del Gesso Regional Park where the hills of Romagna are crossed by a spectacular silver grey chalk ridge.

During our stay, in addition to walking through the streets of the old town, we will visit an Extra Virgin Olive Oil company, and taste and learn about the oils. We will see a 14th century elevated walkway once used by those transporting the gypsum from the Monticino caves with their donkeys. Lunch in farmhouse with local wine tasting.

In the afternoon, we will continue our journey on the antique Roman road, Via Emilia towards the town of Faenza and its world famous ceramics. So much so that the word “Faiance” means ceramics in many languages. There are well over sixty ceramic workshops in the town, where artisans and artists produce a myriad of objects, in different shapes and styles ranging from historical reproductions to artistic experiments.

We will visit one of the historic workshops, learn about this art, and perhaps even take home with us a souvenir. Time for an aperitif or a coffee in the imposing and beautiful main square before heading back to our hotel.
