Modena welcomes tourists and visitors, those travelling for business or pleasure, whether they want to stay just one night or longer, in simple and refined hotels and similar structures that satisfy all their guests' requirements.
In the city, hotels offer hospitality in renovated ancient palazzos and buildings, close to all facilities and monuments of excellence.
For those preferring a prestige address for a longer period, there are holiday rentals, some on their own luxuriant grounds, others refurbished old villas, just outside the city or in the province; the ideal choice for forgetting everyday stress.
The bed & breakfast solution is very popular, for that home-from-home feel during a stay in the city or suburbs, or even in the valley or mountains.
There are also plenty of rooms to let and holiday apartments, for those wanting an informal, family setting at a good price.
Decidedly cheap and informal, hostels are especially popular with younger visitors. The only hostel in the centre of Modena is Ostello San Filippo Neri in Via S. Orsola, which also has socialising rooms and a tourist info point.
There are also youth hostels in the mountains that provide low-cost hospitality in a family environment.
For those wanting their freedom, areas with facilities for motorhomes both in the city and throughout the province are a good alternative and there are also areas for camping.
Both the valley and the mountains offer a wide choice of wonderful agritourism alternatives, in stately homes, or country farmhouses or even mountain hamlets, where visitors can enjoy a feel of the past.
Another interesting idea is accommodation in a peaceful monastery or convent, getting away from everyday stress, even if just for a short while.
Excellent mountain refuges for climbers, skiers, trekkers or simply those who enjoy the mountains, are scattered all over the Apennines and ensure simple yet warm hospitality.
