Italian and minimalist, the BnB is a cozy 1 bedroom with a beautiful garden.

A room with a view, the BnB is only steps from 17th-century city square Piazza Grande. With art, culture, and history around, you will want to spend your time staying in right, by the window watching all the activities in the center of the city. The BnB is only a few minutes from Trattoria Aldina, a place for lunch that serves varieties of homemade pasta. Local flavors, traditional cooking and extraordinary blend of flavors and tastes are what has made this place a ‘local gem’. The restaurant takes pride in quoting what a tourist once said - if you eat at Trattoria Aldina, your life will be more complete!

The pink walls and cobblestone pavements are sure to impress you at first, but wait till you get in! This is the best of both worlds; modern and well equipped inside but holds true charms of rustic Italian outside. Located between the Palazzo Ducale and the cathedral, all the major destinations in the city are just around the corner. But one place you must absolutely dine at is Hosteria Giusti.
Perhaps the oldest deli in the world, it is said to have been around since 1605. A small cozy place with antique furniture, the deli’s aromas are sure to entice you in every day. Serving up some 17th-century recipes and other local flavors, staying only minutes away might help you grab a seat every day in this four table deli. While you’re here, get a taste of the stuffed pigs’ trotters with lentils and Cotechino Fritto Con Zabaione or crazy pork sausage. Their other specialties include Pappardelle with duck, Capon broth tortellini, Pigeon with balsamic vinegar flavor and Tagliatelle with Bacon and can be your lunch and dinner for the next two days!

A bed and breakfast in the center of Modena, this warm and comfortable apartment is only a minute away from the highly acclaimed Osteria Francescana. So close, whiffs of parmesan cooking might keep you up all night! This attic BnB itself is beautifully decorated, very chic and modern while showcasing the apartment’s rustic features in the right way.
About Osteria Francescana, the restaurant is the magnum opus of sorts of celebrated Chef Massimo Botturo and has been in the top of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants for years now. This would be a great experience, a simple must when you’re in Modena.

If Osteria Francescana is on your must-visit list and you want a more vintage, elegant and traditional stay, Salotto delle Arti is your perfect choice. Only a short walk away from Batturo’s restaurant, you might have a hard time making up your mind on where to spend your holiday - the restaurant or the fancy hotel? From the baroque prints, the tassels, the exquisite chandeliers and the colored walls, the hotel is an elegant spot that will take you back in time. Beautifully maintained and artistically decorated, dining in luxury and staying like royalty is what this experience will bring.

Very posh and Italian, the exterior of this hotel will have you excited but you will want to bask in the luxury when you enter in. But, all the historic beauty is sure to drag you back to the street. The hotel blends with the Modena architecture and there is a lot to explore around, even during the ten-minute walk to Modena Cathedral. The hotel is about half a kilometer (0.3 miles) from Osteria da Ermes, the restaurant that serves food so fresh every day that they don’t even have a refrigerator!
Fine dining Italian at its finest, Chef Ermes’ passion for his food is very evident in the fine ingredients he chooses and the food that he presents. Ermes and his wife have built a restaurant that is more like a home for good food! Ermes sources all the ingredients locally, every day, and serves fresh food making sure what is on your plate is extraordinary! That’s why the restaurant has no menu but Ermes puts his heart and soul in the food he serves.

Bright and airy, the hotel exudes warmth and comfort. The white walls will lift you up and the elegant setting is sure to brighten your holiday. The hotel is 600 meters (1,968 ft) from Modena Theatre, and five minutes away is Caffe Concerto Modena. We have a feeling you will want to spend your days reading a book or watching the city cozied in this cafe.

And in the evenings, grab a cup of their fine cappuccino, some Italian cookies and revel in Modena’s nightlife, one like nowhere else in the world.

A small and comfortable space, its proximity from the city center is what puts it on the list. The apartment is located close to the Duomo Cathedral on Piazza Grande Square, Ghirlandina Tower and Mercato Albinelli, a fresh food market. The market sells everything from meats and cheeses, to flowers, mushrooms, and fresh fruits. The experience is just overwhelming because you are sure to be perplexed with all the choices available.
Italian cuisine is something that is simple, yet complex and extraordinary and that is quite evident when you see all the colors and aromas at the market. If you are a self-taught chef, cook yourself a meal with all of Modena’s fresh produce at the well-equipped kitchen in the apartment.
