Well it's between Modena and Parma, for a start, and then you have Piacenza, Cremona, Mantua, Ferrara and Bologna to consider. You might even go as far as Ravenna and/or Milan, in opposite directions! it depends on how much time you have and what your interests are.

@qaminari the coverage of the coast in that article is dreadful and I'm not saying it lightly because I'm a Guardian reader myself. Rimini for example is a city with 2000 years of history: important Roman, Medieval and Renaissance monuments. The article dismiss it as a "quintessential Italian holiday resort". Not to mention the recommendation "avoid the beach bars": actually some of them are really good restaurants and also open in the evening.

To the original poster, check out: en.riviera.rimini.it/situr/discover-the-area

Hello! I'm from reggio emilia, you can visit venice or florence by train, they are not too far. If you take the high speed train to florence, the journey takes only 1 hour.

You can visit also modena, parma, bologna, mantova and don't forget our mountains!

In Reggio Emilia there is the futuristic bullet-trains station called "Mediopadana". There stops the most of trains on the line Milan - Rome, so you can reach Milan, Bologna, Florence, Rome or Naples with direct trains in less (or few) hours. You can check the timetable on TRenitalia or Italo webisites.
