Correggio is a small town situated in Northern Italy in the Emilia-Romagna region, in the Po Valley, not too far from Modena and Bologna. Correggio offers the perfect opportunity to get off the tourist trail, escape the city life, and experience some true Italian culture. The town has a small plaza with many cafes, restaurants, ice cream parlours, bars, and shops. There are also many opportunities to travel to the nearby countryside and hiking trails, which offers beautiful, easy walks through the valley, or more challenging walks in the hillside. There are also many wineries and local farms selling produce just outside the town. The town is quite small, and it is unlikely you will get lost; many of the streets and plazas are also cycle- and pedestrian-friendly.
There are only a handful of accommodation options available, including a couple of boutique hotels, guesthouses, and hostels in Correggio. Wild camping in the nearby valley may also be an option, however much of the land is privately owned by farmers. Most accommodation includes free Wi-Fi, however Wi-Fi is also offered at most cafes and restaurants. Breakfast is sometimes included in the rate, however there are also many supermarkets and bakeries that sell pastries and croissants at an affordable price. Most accommodation does not include a communal kitchen, so this is worth checking at time of booking. Not all staff speak English, so some Italian, or an Italian phrase book would be useful. Some staff may also speak French.
