The Museum and Garden of Ornamental Roses

Next, leave Modena for the town of Montagnana di Serramazzoni, about thirty minutes (twenty-five kilometers) away by car. Here, set on a ridge that offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside, is the huge Museum and Garden of Ornamental Roses, where more than 800 varieties of ornamental roses are cultivated.

Begin with a guided tour of the Museum and, afterward, get your energy back at a small tasting featuring local products and specialties made with roses. Depending upon the season, you could also choose one of the museum’s special activities, including the multisensory herbarium. Engage all five senses: roses to feel, to see, to touch, to smell and to taste!
