Find a car holiday in Europe at Risskov and also find child-friendly hotels for your trip south. If your trip is to Italy, there are plenty of options. One of them is the beautiful Ravenna province and the historic city of Lugo. The city is located in the inner area of the province of Ravenna, not far from the Adriatic Sea or from the hills of the Romagna Appennines, between the cities of Bologna and Ravenna. Lugo can be enjoyed all year round not least because of its many monuments, shops and sporting events.

The city's landmark is the Rocca Estense, an ancient fortress that today houses the city hall. The dungeon 'Uguccione della Faggiola' dates back to the end of the 13th century, while much of the town's other architecture dates back to the end of the 16th century. Also visit the 'hanging gardens' which are a breathtaking sight. Opposite the fortress is the 'Pavaglione', a building dating from the 18th century. An impressive 'square' where silkworms were traded in ancient times. There is still a market every Wednesday and it can certainly be an entertaining visit if you want to take a bit of shopping home. Next to the fortress is a monument erected in honour of the Italian World War I aviator Francesco Baracca, and there is of course a museum in town commemorating the famous Italian. On the western side of the 'Pavaglione' is the beautiful 'Teatro Rossini', which was completed in 1761.

A few kilometres from Lugo is the village of Santa Maria in Fabriago, known for its ancient church with the characteristic bell tower with Romanesque windows, typical of the Byzantine style in the 9th century. Enjoy the architectural masterpieces on your car holiday to Lugo with Risskov and discover Ravenna at your own pace.


The town of Faenza is located on Via Emilia, between the sea and the mountains, right at the crossroads of the road connecting Ravenna with Florence. Faenza is probably best known for its pottery, a tradition that dates back to the 12th century and which, during the Renaissance, became of great artistic importance for ceramics throughout Italy. As a result, there are many ceramics workshops and schools where the art of ceramics has been greatly refined over time and beautiful works of art continue to be created and can be seen throughout the city. There are also many elegant shops and mixed with the gastronomic delights that Faenza has to offer, it will only be a pleasure to stop by the city centre.

Since the 14th century, Faenza has been an important political and cultural meeting place, with strong ties to the Medici family in Florence. The town is adorned with many different monuments, which help to preserve its ancient charm. There is the impressive ´Piazza del Popolo´, bordered by arcades, and the ´Piazza della Libertà´ with its beautiful cathedral, built at the end of the 15th century.

Founded in 1908, the International Ceramics Museum has a unique collection of ceramics from different periods and geographical origins and, of course, a section dedicated to Faenza ceramics from the Renaissance.

In summer, the 'Martedì d'Estate' or 'Summer Tuesdays' are a traditional event with exhibitions in the streets and guided tours of historic buildings and churches, as well as live music and tastings of local produce. A trip to Faenza is highly recommended, especially for its cosy atmosphere and beautiful architecture.


The small town of Forlì was founded by the Romans in the 2nd century BC and lies at the crossroads of the Via Consolare and the road that went to Tuscany. The town lies at the eastern end of the Po Valley, along the famous 'Via Emilia' at the foot of the green hills of the Tuscan Romagna Appernines.

The city's historic centre consists of two main Roman roads, which can still be seen, but is divided into four main streets, Mazzini, Garibaldi, Diaz and della Repubblica, all of which converge on Piazza A. Saffi.

There are a number of buildings representing the different eras, such as the Romanesque Basilica di San Mercuriale with its impressive authentic 12th-century bell tower. The Town Hall, Palazzo Comunale, dates from the 14th century and has been rebuilt several times, and there are also the 15th century Palazzo del Podestà and Palazzo Albertini, which are certainly worth a visit. During the Ordelaffi reign, which lasted two centuries, Forlì was enriched with several palaces, which can be enjoyed on a stroll up, for example, Via P. Maroncelli or Corso Giuseppe Garibaldi. The Ravaldino Fortress, also known as the Rocca di Caterina Sforza, rises at the end of Corso Diaz and the whole complex is surrounded by a lovely park.

Try the 'Passatelli' at one of the many local restaurants. Noodles cooked in broth, a very traditional dish that has its origins in Forlì itself. There is much to see and admire in the city, so set aside a day to discover this friendly and very beautiful town.
