13 Jun 2013

Customer Travel Tip: Make sure things are open after the earthquake- in Mantova and Modena cool places like the Camera degli Sposi and Galleria Estense are closed.

Liked: It's very atmospheric and pleasant to be in. It feels like you're in a de Chirico painting but it's nice and friendly instead of disquieting.

Disliked: The churches all look alike and they're hideous! Modena's churches are so much prettier

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Visiting friends or family

Customer Travel Tip: Simply enjoy the city with walking!

Liked: I simply like size of the city. It was small and quiet, with a large and well-preserved castle at the city centre.

Disliked: The transports are simply stupid, just like others in region of Emilia-Romagna. They never put a clear map on the bus stops. One will never have an idea on the general direction of where the written stops are.

Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: ......

Liked: Beautiful historical town and so few cars! At the tourist information, they'll you "it is just 20 minutes on foot". They have a walking possibly culture unique in Italy, a country well known for its infantile love of cars.

Disliked: A bit chilly in November.
