Additional Location Information

In eastern Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, just 18 miles from the Adriatic Sea, the ancient city of Forli offers plenty to keep tourists entertained. Founded around 200 B.C., Forli has, over the millennia, accumulated a wealth of architectural, artistic and cultural treasures. With a population of nearly 120,000, the city boasts multiple options in dining and entertainment. Unlike many European destinations, Forli’s climate makes for a pleasant visit at any time of year; the city experiences mild winters, with highs averaging in the mid to upper 40s Fahrenheit, and summer daytime temperatures typically reaching the low 80s.

Getting In and Around
The small Forli Airport (L. Ridolfi) serves primarily Eastern European destinations with just a few flights per day; hence, most visitors to Forli arrive via train or bus from larger airports. The chief international airport nearest Forli is Bologna (bologna-airport.it), from which it is just a one-hour drive down the A14 motorway. Or, take the train ((website: hidden)); a major rail line known as Bologna-Ancona connects Bologna to Forli with frequent, direct service. Bus travel from Bologna is also frequent and direct. After arriving in Forli, multiple bus stations lie within very close proximity to the single rail station, ensuring ease of travel within the city, regardless of your means of getting there. As for the layout of Forli itself, a ring of main roads -- Viala Italia, Livio Salinator, Vittorio Veneto, Giacomo Matteotti and Phillipo Corridoni – surround the compact city center. Within this loop are a hodgepodge network of old and narrow streets, many of which are one-way. In the very middle of Forli lies the main square, Piazza Saffi, the city’s pulsating heart and lifeblood. This plaza is the center of various activities, including the weekly market, various festivals, political demonstrations and debates. But perhaps most importantly, many of Forli’s top attractions line Saffi Square, making it the ideal starting point for sightseeing.

Palaces and Civic Buildings
Dominating the Piazza Saffi is the Town Hall. This large building, originally constructed in the 15th century, centers around a tall clock tower known as the Civic Tower. On the Piazza’s southwestern side are two other magnificent examples of 15th-century architecture: the Palazzo del Podesta and Albertini Palace. The former is private property, and its Gothic architecture can be admired only from the outside, but step inside the Venetian-style Albertini Palace to explore its elegant decor. Back in the plaza, another palace, the Palazzo De Paulucci Calboli, demonstrates 18th century neoclassical design; its interior includes sculptures of ancient Greek gods and goddesses. On the other hand, the Post Office, built in the early 1930s, stands in stark contrast as an example of Fascist architecture. Other impressive historic buildings include the 20th century Palace of Justice and the 14th century Rock of Ravaldino, also known as the Sforza Riario fortress.

Cathedrals
Some of Forli’s most splendid buildings are cathedrals. By far the most remarkable is the Basilica of San Mercuriale in Saffi Square, a Romanesque abbey built in the 12th century. Its exterior features a bell tower, while inside, reliefs and other works of art adorn its walls. On the west side of Piazza Saffi sits the Church of the Intercession, built over the course of more than two centuries; construction began in 1723 but didn’t finish until 1933. Pillars line the elliptical interior, and frescoes are etched into its slender dome. Additional notable cathedrals in Forli include the Church of San Domenico, the Church of the Carmine and the Cathedral of Forli.

Outdoor Pursuits
Next to the river Montone, Franco August Urban Park provides paths for jogging or cycling, as well as venues for horseback riding, beach volleyball, bowling and basketball. In spring and summer, enjoy the floral beauty of Resistance Park’s public gardens, which date back to 1816. For a scenic stroll, head down Corso Garibaldi, Corso Diaz, Corso della Republica or Corso Mazzini. Not far outside the city, depending on the time of year, visitors can pursue hiking, bird-watching, downhill and cross-country skiing.

Arts, Culture and Gastronomy
Depending on the timing of your visit, you may encounter one of the many folk festivals or musical events, such as the Festival of the Madonna sul Fuoco. Year-round, catch a performance at the Teatro Diego Fabbri (teatrodiegofabbri.it), which hosts not only plays but also concerts and exhibitions. For a taste of Forli’s flavor, try the flatbread known as Piadina spread with soft squacquerone cheese, washed down with the local white wine known as Padadebit. And in the rolling hills just outside the city, follow the Wine and Dine Route to sample traditional handcrafted specialties.
