Modena a town rich in culture, and prestige car-makers

Modena is so fascinating that it even charmed Unesco into putting three of its extraordinary beauties – the Cathedral, the Ghirlandina tower and Piazza Grande onto the World Heritage List in 1997. But Modena is not only a town of great art and culture. It is also universally known for its excellent food and wine, with stars such as traditional balsamic vinegar, Lambrusco wine, and typical local salami. And of course, it is world-famous for its car-making factories. Each year Ferrari and Maserati are visited by millions of F1 fans coming from all over the planet, as far as Japan.
