From Imola to Dozza
Posted on 27 February 2020 From eXtraBO Outdoor Infopoint
If we consider Imola as ideal starting point to discover the territory, the itinerary should start from the Enzo and Dino Ferrari Autodrome of Imola.
A walk in the Parco delle Acque Minerali (Mineral Water Park), located right in the centre of the Autodrome, will reveal hidden corners from which to admire scenic views of the Imola racetrack. A stop at the monument dedicated to Senna is a must.
Another important point of interest of the city is the Rocca Sforzesca: an imposing defensive structure that defends and symbolically represents Imola.
A stone's throw away from Imola, there is Dozza: one of the hundred most beautiful villages in Italy, which, lying on the vine-grown hills, is a small medieval treasure chest of surprising beauty. Overlooking the village is the Rocca di Dozza (Fortress of Dozza): within its premises, you can visit the house museum and the Fyrstan dragon. The Emilia Romagna Regional Wine Shop is located in its basements, where you have the chance to taste and purchase the best wine productions of the entire region.
To complete this day tour of the area surrounding Imola, the streets of Dozza will definitely impress visitors, captivating them with the village's Painted Walls: in fact, every other year, the village hosts the Biennial of the Painted Wall, an initiative that enriches the streets of the town with new works, donated by Italian artists.
