Hi...

I’m staying inBologna and would like to spend a day to visit Reggio Emilia and Modena....

Which would u recommended better for Reggio...morning ? Arrive early....coffeee and cornetist and explore..then to Modena? Or other way around and why?

Is the town near the station? I know it’s not much time but would love to see it for a few hours at least.

Thanks
