When you visit a new city or land, Art lovers like me have already experienced that for time and economic reasons, you often have to make some cuts, selecting only some places from your list.
This is why I decided to make a list of some combined tickets or entry tickets that are available #inEmiliaRomagna, in order to enjoy at best some of the most beautiful monuments and museums of our regions, SAVING MONEY.

The cathedral and its baptistery, the Bishop’s Palace and the annexed Diocesan Museum in the centre of Parma have been hubs of art, history and sacredness for more than 900 years. This itinerary is perfect to know better Romanesque art and its developments during the following centuries. The dome’s cupola is a compulsory stop: it was embellished with frescoes by Correggio during the first half of 16th century.
The UNESCO complex in Modena
It is a tour inside/within the heart of Modena, with a special stop at the Ghirlandina bell tower and Piazza Grande, Unesco World Heritage monuments since 1997. It is a travel backwards inside the Romanesque art of the beginning of 12th century, which includes also the Cathedral Museums, Acetaia – a traditional vinegar manufacturer company – and the historical venues of the Town Hall Palace.
Comacchio Museum Pass

This itinerary finds its source/routes from the history of Comacchio: it ranges from the recently opened Ancient Delta Museum, where archaeology narrates the past of this place, to the Pickling Factory, linked to the cycle of eels and smelts processing. Last but not least, it includes contemporary art with the Museum Of Contemporary Art “Remo Brindisi”.
It is a unique itinerary: a real boat trip through the Comacchio Valleys will show you closer the magic of this extraordinary natural ecosystem.
