Routes and guided tours in Modena

Modena is a surprising city with many facets. A city to be enjoyed for its gastronomic delicacies but also for its historical-cultural heritage that moves from prehistoric to contemporary times in a continuous recall of artistic excellence among which proudly stands out the wonderful Romanesque cathedral, Unesco heritage, focal and ideological point of all Modena urbanism.
If the passage of centuries has handed down its artistic treasures, modernity gives us a city that, with the production tradition primacy of the balsamic vinegar, lambrusco and Parmigiano-Reggiano, has been able to put beside the mastery of the motor factory (Ferrari and Maserati of course) and the beautiful singing school with the unforgettable Luciano Pavarotti.

Each tour can be customized according to the client's needs. Visits to churches, museums and exhibitions are only allowed on days and opening hours, so it is not always possible to guarantee the integrity of the proposal.
