Bologna & Emilia-Romagna, 4th (Country & Regional Guides - Cadogan).

Bologna & Emilia-Romagna, 4th (Country & Regional Guides - Cadogan). If you plan on taking day trips throughout Emilia-Romagna this book will lead you to all the important things, especially where to eat! The histories and descriptions are witty and informative and seem to explain the sites better than most other guides I have encountered. My only complaint is that only the bigger cities (Bologna, Parma, Ravenna, etc) have maps, so you might find yourself a little lost if you don't find the tourist office or someone to point you in the right direction.

Dana Facaros & Michael Pauls. We have been writing together since dinosaurs roamed the earth, starting with some 40 Cadogan guides.

Bologna & Emilia-Romagna is by far the most comprehensive guidebook – The Daily Telegraph (UK). If you are thinking of visiting the region, be sure to take this one with yo. – The Sunday Times (UK). Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls are passionate about Europe and have written over 30 books for Cadogan, including 20 in the Italy series, a country where they lived for several years.

Bologna & Emilia-Romagna book. Dana Facaros wrote her first guide book the Greek Islands at age 20 in 1977, and husband Michael Pauls joined her a few years later in penning guides to Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica.

I got this book as a planning guide for a trip to the Emilia romagna region in the next year or so. Most guidebooks ignore this region because it is a mainly agrarian part of the country. It seems to be well organized and easily makes a case for spending a week to ten days in the region. I think for folks who want to explore the heartland of italian cooking this is probably the right book. I think one of the nice touches is they identify several country Inns that seem to be nice alternatives to city hotels

It's a sad reflection on just how overlooked this wonderful and important part of Italy is these days that so few guides cover it at all; in fact, this may be the first one in years that covers Emilia-Romagna comprehensively. Luckily, this effort by seasoned Europe travel writers Facaros and Pauls does the region a great turn.

The book is a convenient size -- not too large, not too small -- and is well organized. There is a fairly comprehensive, if a bit tendentious, section on the history of the region, a very good section on the arts (including a neat alphabetized list of the painters, sculptors, and architects whose works a traveler in the region is likely to encounter), another on food, followed by the mandatory practical section. Finally, there is a detailed description of the region, broken up logically into six areas: Piacenza, Parma, Reggio & Modena, Bologna, Ferrara & Ravenna, and the Romagna/Adreatic portion of the region.

The writers know what to focus on: in addition to the separate section on food, part of the section on history is devoted to Emilia-Romagna's culinary achievements, the region's strong suit. The level of the authors' erudition and up-to-date intelligence is evident throughout the guide. The descriptions of the sights are knowledgeable and engaging but also to-the-point, leaving little to be desired. There is, unfortunately, very little photography inside the guide, save for a "photo essay" in the beginning, but this contributes to the book's portable size and weight. Some of the local maps, too, could be better, but few guidebooks have good maps.

Most impressive, perhaps, have been the book's captions on restaurants in the towns where I stayed. It is clear that the authors actually ate at many of the establishments. Perhpas it's hard to go wrong in Emilia-Romagna, but all the eateries they recommended were well worth a visit.

I have now used the book on two trips to the region, both of which times it was my primary resource. It is now well-worn, and I intend to use it again. What better compliment can you give a travel guide?

Ah Emilia Romagna!
The recognized capital of Italian Cuisine. The richest area perhaps in all of Europe and the acknowledged most desirable place to live in Europe.
So why is Emilia Romagna given 10 pages in Italy Travel Guides?
Fear not! Cadogan recognizes the riches of the region and provides detail about the wonders to be found there.
Start with Bologna home of one of Europe's oldest universities, with miles of porticoes, great tratorias and osterias. Continue with Parma, home of Prosciutto de Parma and Parmigiano Reggiano
cheese. Explore Ferrara and Modena home of Ferrari. All this is captured in this unique guide.
Andiate e vederate!

I purchased this book prior to studying abroad in Bologna, and it has been an essential part of traveling in the region. If you plan on taking day trips throughout Emilia-Romagna this book will lead you to all the important things, especially where to eat! The histories and descriptions are witty and informative and seem to explain the sites better than most other guides I have encountered. My only complaint is that only the bigger cities (Bologna, Parma, Ravenna, etc) have maps, so you might find yourself a little lost if you don't find the tourist office or someone to point you in the right direction. It is really a great purchase that I would recommend for anyone who plans to travel or live in the region.

There aren't many books that cover Emilia-Romagna so I was glad that is book does a good job. We spent two weeks in Emilia-Romagna and this book was extremely useful in helping us find wonderful lodging, great food (the main reason to visit the region), the best castles and other historic sites.

Very informative and helpful book for this less touristy region.
