COMFY & CLASSY
Late October in Modena can be shifty, but upcoming weather forecast brings mild sunny days and chilly evenings.
The average daily temperature will be up to 24°C and minimum morning/evening temperature up to 14℃.
We recommend wearing layers of cloth and a light jacket as optimal combination for comfort stay in this city and its surroundings full of historic secrets and sights. Make sure to pack sneakers or other comfy shoes for exploring driving delights of Maranello during this adventurous journey.
Evening out can be a bit chilly regardless of delicious Italian wines.
We recommend smart casual as best dress code if you wish to enjoy the La Bella Italia night in the city.
THE TASTE OF VINO
In 2009. the local wine producers received their own DOC (designation of controlled origin). The vineyards lie at the heart of Emilia-Romagna’s “Lambrusco zone”.
Modena wines are all almost frizzante (light and semi sparkling) or spumante (foaming) sparkling wines.
They come in a variety of styles – not just red, rose and white but also varietal and blended. Modena Novello, a red from the Lambrusco grape variety, is the only still wine.
The town is a hub for high-quality food and wine. In 2000 the city’s traditional balsamic vinegar gained the Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOC (designation of controlled origin).
This is made from Lambrusco, Ancellotta and Trebbiano (of various types) as well as Sauvignon Blanc, Sgavetta and Occhio di Gatta. The name of the latter means “cat’s eye”.
