Reggio Emilia

Sometimes called Reggio nell'Emilia or Reggio di Emilia, Reggio Emilia is a handsome, well-organized, and likeable city. Interspersed with the fashion, food, and miscellaneous shops are well-maintained palazzos and churches. The narrow side streets of residences and businesses are beautifully kept and attractive.

Four of these streets formed a part of the old Jewish Ghetto, which was established in 1669. The synagogue, which is being renovated by the government, was built on the site of a 1672 temple and opened to the public in 1858.

Other points of interest include the 13th-century Cathedral, the Renaissance Church of the Madonna della Ghiara, and the Parmeggiani art gallery. The poet Ariosto was born in Reggio in 1474.

Outside of Reggio are interesting towns like Guastalla, Gualtierei, and Correggio. To the south is one of the more attractive stretches of the Emilian Apennines and home to the famous Castle of Canossa.
