Bologna, Modena or Parma for a base?

Jump to last reply

Hi Guys! I already tried this under a different title but didn't get too many responses so I will try again.

My husband and I will be in Emilia-Romagna Oct 2-6 (for 4 nights) and we are going strictly for the food and to see Bologna. We will be arriving from Montepulciano in Tuscany and then going to Piedmont afterwards. I've read that the best restaurants can be found in the hill towns of Modena. Parma appeals to me mostly but I don't think it makes sense to drive past bologna, then back to see it one or two days. We definitely don't want to stay in the city centre of Bologna and don't want to go to Ravenna. Would Modena make the most sense? We will have a car so we can drive to bologna (I realize not directly into) and to Parma for day trips or even take a train.
