On one of our days in Bologna, we took a day trip to Modena. The highlight for the boys was surely the 30-minute train journey.
Modena’s laneways were very similar to Bologna, and indeed the whole town feels like a smaller, quainter version of its neighbour.
We visited on a Saturday, and spent a fair chunk of time exploring the city’s covered market, collecting some foodstuffs to enjoy for our dinner back in Bologna. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at a small trattoria surrounded by Modenese families, and had a wander around the Modena cathedral.
All-in-all, it was a nice little day trip from Bologna.
