Cammini Emilia Romagna

Pilgrim's Bag

In Emilia-Romagna there are two ways you can enjoy experiential travel to its fullest, diving into slow rhythms and a healthy lifestyle in touch with nature.
The first one is by following the 18 antichi Cammini (age-old Paths) and Vie dei Pellegrini (Pilgrimage Routes), an impressive series of paths and routes (a national record) that cut across the Emilia-Romagna region and take the tourist-traveller through places full of wonders, faith, nature, history, and hospitality.

The second one is by tasting the culinary specialties of the region’s Food Valley – 44 products overall, 19 of which are PDO and 25 are PGI, not to mention the region’s 24 PDO wines (22 Doc and 2 Docg), 9 PGI wines (this new classification is replacing the previous one, i.e. Igt), 17 Slow Food Sites and over 400 local products registered with the Atlante Ministeriale and known and beloved at international level, so much so that over the years they have become tourist products.

When these two options meet, the result is Bisaccia del Viandante, a project by Apt Servizi Emilia-Romagna, in cooperation with Assessorato all’Agricoltura of the Emilia Romagna region, which aims at promoting the high-quality European and local products that may be found along the route, according to season. You may choose: a packed lunch to enjoy while travelling, a specific menu to taste at one of the facilities and restaurants along the path, or a culinary “souvenir” that you can take home with you. What these three options have in common is their being typical from the Emilia-Romagna region.
