Strolling along Imola's alleys

Updated on 29 April 2020 From IF ImolaFaenza

Imola is best known for its motoring tradition, but also for its uncomparable history, jealously guarded among its streets and buildings. This very special route will disclose all secrets of the city's twofold nature, immersed in the heart of the Emilian Plain. 

It all starts at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, which in over sixty years of hosting some of the most important Grand Prix in the world of Formula One has brought the city to an international dimension. Don't miss the chance to join a guided tour of the circuit or a route through the Mineral Water Park

From here, a short walk of just ten minutes will take you into the oldtown, eternally watched over by the imposing Rocca Sforzesca , one of the city's most iconic buildings, once belonging to the powerful Caterina Sforza. 

Not far away stands Palazzo Tozzoni, where a varied exhibition itinerary will take you through the charming halls and galleries of the dwelling . Opposite the Town Hall, you don't want to miss a visit to the Renaissance Palazzo Sersanti,  since 1930 seat of the Circolo Cittadino Sersanti (Sersanti Citizens' Circle), founded to promote culture and art. 

Finally, the tour of Imola's historic centre would not be complete without a visit to the Cathedral of San Cassiano, with its 15th-century wooden crucifix, the16th-century baptismal font and its 18th-century wooden choir.
