Established in 1985, La Rocca Golf Club sits on the hills that dominate Parma’s plain, close to the ducal village of Sala Baganza. This is a technical and moderately difficult course set amidst oak and acacia woods and artificial lakes. The course, 18 holes, par 71, S.S.S. 71, covers 6,076 metres. In the surrounding area, in addition to Parma’s monuments and museums that are only 13 km away, there are a number of interesting places such as Torrechiara Castle, Fontanellato, Colorno, Soragna and Canossa fortresses. The neighbouring Boschi di Carrega Regional Park boasts a huge variety of flora and fauna in 1,000 hectares of woods and glades. There’s golf, art, history, ecology and excellent Parmesan cuisine in the ancient "Casinetto", which is now the club restaurant.

Emilia Romagna lies between the River Po to its north and the Apennine Mountains (to its south). It is one of the most fertile and productive regions of Italy, thanks to the mitigating effect that the Adriatic Sea has on the coastal climate. 

The diversity between the mountains and sea offers visitors to Emilia Romagna breathtaking views, in addition to beauty for both the eyes and spirit, with a mixture of the earthy colors, the aromas and the fresh sea air. Not to mention that Emilia Romagna is a hotbed for music, cinema and art appreciated nationally and internationally. 

Many who love the combination of sun, sea and entertainment choose the Romagna RivieraIt possesses the longest beach in Europe, and is where visitors flock to enjoy its sport offerings and leisure facilities. Towns such as RiminiRiccione and Cattolica are highly-outfitted for touristic reception, emphasizing relaxation and fun. 

Further from the coast, the beautiful landscape of the Apennines, for instance, makes the region ideal for horseback riding or trekking in the area between Parma and Piacenza. Make a visit to the splendid parks and wonderful nature reserves. 

The hinterland features several wellness spas like Salsomaggiore and Bagno di Romagna, due to its many types of water springs, as well as modern facilities and technology.  

Both culinary and artistic methods found themselves on the fertile soil of this land, and their roots run deep. 

This is the land of Verdi’s novels and Giovanni Pascoli’s poetry, as well as Fellini’s unmistakable cinema - a director who became a legend through his many masterpieces that come to life in this, his native region. In Emilia Romagna, one can enjoy amazing views anywhere, and the list of places to choose from is endless. 

Emilia Romagna sits on the border with the third-smallest country in Europe, the Republic of San Marino.

The provinces of the region are: Bologna (the region's capital), FerraraForli-CesenaModenaParmaPiacenza, RavennaReggio Emilia, and Rimini

 

 

PARMA

Its geographical position, history and gastronomic tradition render the Province of Parma one of Italy's most emblematic provinces.
Located in northern Italy, this Province extends from the Po River in the north (representing Emilia Romagna's boundary with Lombardy), down to the Apennines crest separating it from Tuscany.
It is mainly made up of plains, and with its Bassa Parmense (lower province) following the course of the Po. The terrain is nothing if not evocative and suggestive, it inspires with its villages, castles and ancient churches... even when shrouded in fog.

The country is dotted with several lakes, including Lake Santo Parmense, the largest natural lake in the Romagna Region.

The Parma Apennines offer visitors pristine nature framed within a magical landscape; an ideal path network was created exactly for its discovery.

Parma is synonymous with nature, history and art. Indeed, names such as AntelamiCorreggioParmigianinoVerdi and Toscanini made their mark in a city in this sophisticated and graceful jewel of a city.
