Ancient Majesty to Modernity

Upon your arrival in Reggio Emilia, it’s impossible not to be impressed by the train station. Opened in 2013, this modern building sits against the backdrop of the area’s greenery and appears as an undulating white wave on land. It has every amenity you’d expect for travelers. Within walking distance to the center of the town, this steel and glass structure appears to always be in motion, a perfect refection of the trains that frequent it.

Reggio Emilia, Italy is officially known as Reggio nell’emilia. Official is pretty important here since Reggio Emilia is the birthplace of the Italian flag. Museo del Tricolore has interactive displays to showcase the pride of the Italian flag in its birthplace.

Be sure to visit the Basilica della Beata Vergine della Ghiara, Reggio Emilia’s most important church with a ceiling masterwork by painter Alessandro Tiarini. The Teatro Municipale Valli is a neoclassical theater with dance, opera and theatre performances; recognized as one of the finest in all of Italy. If you prefer more natural delights, you can enjoy the Parco Nazionale dell'Appennino Tosco-Emiliano, a simply beautiful natural preserve located in the heart of the region.

The point is, with Reggio Emilia just 1 and ½ hours from Milan by train, you’ll have plenty more day in your day to decide how you’d like to spend it. And as always with the train, you’ll travel in comfort, unstressed with room to stretch, freedom to get up, losing yourself in the views instead of the roads. Fiabesco!
