But away of the city center, the traffic and the popular tourist sights always full of people, is the old cementery. A serene, peaceful and incredibly beautiful place...

MODENA
I didn't have much luck in discovering Modena. The renovation of the famous cathedral made me a little disapointed.

Italy - part one

07.09-15.09.2006

Besides thousands of places to discover, amazing Italian cuisine and the famous Italian sun, there are three main reasons to go to Italy:
1. The best coffee in the world
2. The unique atmosphere of siesta time
3. The taste of the italian grapes from vineyards and figs picked by yourself during a bicycle ride in the countryside.
This year I went to Emilia Romagna and here are some of my favourite places and pictures.
RIMINI

Piazza Cavour is an important place for all Fellini's fans, here the famous movie "Amarcord" was made.

But Rimini is not only a popular seaside resort, it's also full of signs of the great and long history of the Appennine Penisula. Here the bridge of Tiberius (a roman emperor I century a.C.)

And here the arch of triumph of August

And this is Caesar, he came to Rimini after crossing the Rubicon.

CESENA
15 kms only from Rimini is Cesena - a lovely little Italian town, during siesta time complitely empty. You are alone and the city is yours:)
