Come and stroll around and watch the crowds. Many nice shops on the adjoining streets, Large animated cafe under the arches with outdoor heated seating. The tower and the Doumo are beautiful.

The building itself is very nice with its arcades, but inside the historical rooms are amazing. Most probably not too much tourist know about it - it is free and wonderful. Go and visit it.

Before we stepped into the beautifully orchestrated rooms filled with stupendously decorated ceilings, charming civic paintings and superb, big tapestries, one has to acknowledge and tip your hat to the this local, called "The Land of Motors".

A pilgrimage to the sacred places of these almost mystical sights, is an obligation, let alone a birth-right. Start at the Galleria Ferrari in Maranello, where the historic cars driven in Formula One and Gran Turismo races are on display. Utter the name Maserati, and the throaty thrust of its power rings through the air, exciting and seeking envy. Not far away is the De Tomaso family museum & factory where the cars and bikes are viewed with reverence not equalled in religious places. The list goes on.... Lamborghini, Ducati...... I am all choked- up. My femme gives me that look, you know the one, half pity, half who-knows-what look.

This is a city that owes its fortune not only to its Parmesan cheese, pigs feet stuffed with sausage meat, but also the famous balsamic vinegar, all of which enhances its cultural prestige. Its an easy city to stroll through, literally divided in two by the historic Via Emilia, where traffic is diverted to allow space and freedom to pedestrians and cyclist, without doubt, the most popular means of transport.

If the great factories are on your pilgrimage trail, they are not far out of town. Take some shards of Grana cheese, and strawberries eaten al cucchiaio as an aperitif with a little balsamic vinegar . Then head back into town for more strolling, and consuming the fabric of this cultural and beautiful township.

By all means go in & visit the historical rooms which are open to the public. They are beautiful with amazing ceilings, big chandeliers, series of paintings & tapestries on the walls.
Since this place is still the seat of the Municipality of Modena there might be some restrictions due to meetings or other activities(weddings), so check in advance.
At the time of our visit we were lucky to see & admire all the rooms
