Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Modena

Modena is not on the obvious tourist trails so English is not necessarily understood in its restaurants and bars. A smattering of Italian will be required to smooth your way. Despite their affection for fast cars, most locals get around the historic center of Modena on bikes and visitors can find inexpensive rental vehicles to enjoy the tranquil streets of the center. Modena offers prestigious restaurants serving the rich cuisine of Emilia-Romagna, but locals are as likely to opt for a beer and the distinctive bar snacks at small osterie cafe-bars. Ciccioli are pork scratchings, while zampone are stuffed pig's trotters. Modena is famous around the world for its balsamic vinegars and a decorative bottle makes the obvious souvenir. The Venere site provides detailed information to help you narrow down our choice of Modena hotels to the one that best suits your requirements. Certified guest reviews are highlighted alongside photo galleries, sample room layouts, and maps indicating the main attractions to give you a clear idea of what to expect.
