Not as well known or as visited as its more illustrious neighbours, Lombardy, Veneto and Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna is one of the wealthiest and well-developed regions of Italy, and lays claim to the country’s third highest GDP. Bisected by an ancient road that connected Rome to the north of the county, dating from 187BC, the region is home to the cities of Parma, famous for its architecture and beautiful rolling countryside, Bologna, site of the oldest university in the world, and classical Ravenna. The ancient wonders of Ravenna date back to 401AD when the city became the capital of the Western Roman Empire with many early Christian and Byzantine churches and monuments preserved in the city.
