Your visit to Emilia Romagna can start in Talamello, set in the Valmarecchia, a valley rich in beautiful towns like Sant’Arcangelo di Romagna or San Leo. Talamello belonged to the Marche region until 2009.
Arriving from the coast, driving up the Apennines, one can imagine Caesar's legions marching to Rome, just after having crossed the Rubicon river, ready to change history. You can admire the Malatesta castle where Dante's tragedy with Paolo and Francesca as protagonists took place. Dozens of castles, hundreds of thousands of stories of wars and battles; an area where even the unification of Italy had to grant an exception to allow San Marino to be an independent Republic. But back to the pits and to our flavor destinations.
Talamello is a village perched on top of a small mountain that you can reach after passing through a beautiful forest. From the main square of Talamello you can enjoy a wonderful view and start discovering the street where the ancient pits are situated. Most of them are inaccessible because in private homes, but there are two of them that you can visit: one is public, the other one is situated in a typical restaurant of the village, La Locanda dell'Ambra, where you would have the opportunity to try traditional recipes with this crumbly Italian cheese.
