Delicious food, no tourist traps
Very bad weather, cold and umid in winter, hot and umid in summer
In a nutshell
come to say goodbye to me, Reggio is worth one day visit
Since 2003 Reggio Emilia's municipality organizes its Notte Bianca, as bigger cities like Rome alread does. It's normally the last Saturday of May: all museums and exibitions are open until 2 am, in every square of the town there is live music or ballets or cabaret and of course, all bars and restaurants are full of peaple. It's really a great atmosphere. Parking in town is impossible on that night, but there are some huge parking places just outside the old city centre where you can park. From there free shuttles to the old town.
Dress Code: No dress code but I suggest for women no high heels because it's nice to walk everywhere

There are endless possibilities to hike around Reggio Emilia. A short Sunday morning alternative is this:
Today we went up the Enza Valley to do a 3,5 hour hike. The tour starts in the small hamlet of Scalucchia and is designed as a round trip which touches Spigone, Pineto, Legoreccio and Crovara to return to the point where you started.
It is of medium difficulty, which essentially means that there are three a bit challenging ascending slopes, which are perfectly feasible, even if you are not trained. The slopes are maximum 200 m in length and pass through the forest and through grasses.
The whole trail is signed with red-white stripes and if you buy a map look for "Il sentiero dei Ducati" and route number 670. The whole trail is less than 10 km.
Equipment: Hiking or nordic walking shoes, water, a snack (bars, fruit, hard boiled egg etc), if you want nordic walking sticks.
Depending on the season a sun hat, sun glasses, a fleece and a water proof jacket can be useful.
