Holidays in Italy to discover the Romagna hinterland and Faenza, the city of ceramics

4 June 2020

According to the well-known Airbnb portal, in the summer of 2020, 82% of Italians will choose to spend their holidays in the Bel Paese (last year it was 55%). A prudent choice, dictated by the global health crisis which still imposes severe limitations on travel between countries, but which can prove to be a good opportunity to rediscover the artistic and naturalistic heritage of Italy.

Again according to experts, the choice could fall on Romagna “because historically reactive, flexible and very oriented towards customer satisfaction”. A nice responsibility for us from Romagna, but also a great opportunity to discover the beauties of the Romagna hinterland.

Piazza della Libertà, Faenza

Let’s talk about our Faenza, a city of art full of points of interest: from the International Museum of Ceramics, unique in the world, to Palazzo Milzetti, which is the national museum of the neoclassical age in Romagna. And between a walk in Piazza del Popolo and a short excursion on the hills, to the Torre di Oriolo, you can visit our large exhibition of traditional artistic ceramics in via Sant’Ippolito 23 / A, a stone’s throw from the historic center. We can safely accommodate a small group (5/6 people) or a family, to illustrate the techniques and decorations of Faenza ceramics that have been handed down for centuries, unchanged.

Faenza is a city that can be visited during the day, also coupled with the nearby Brisighella – among the most beautiful villages in Italy – and Forlì, home of the San Domenico Museums. It can be part of an itinerary of a few days that includes the nearby cities of art of Ravenna, Bologna and Rimini and is easily accessible by car or train even by those staying on the Riviera, the ideal “artistic break” from beach life.

We are waiting for you, certain that it will be an anomalous summer, but no less interesting!
