Getting there: 

by car: A14 Rimini Sud - Faenza, 63km, then Statale 302 for Florence, 12km.
by train: Rimini - Faenza, then Faenza - Brisighella with a pleasant ride through the woods along the line that leads to Florence.

Brisighella is 115 m above sea level.
Three peaks rise out of the selenite rock: on one peak there is the Clock Tower, on the second the fortress and on the third a Marian Sanctuary.
The village is very characteristic with curious constructions such as the Via degli Asini, a street with a raised arcade where mule caravans once passed on their way to the chalk pits.
Characteristic and of great appeal, the Medieval Festival, which takes place every year in June (www.festemedioevali.org)

Additional notes: 
Local cuisine:
Visitors can taste examples of medieval cuisine, including zuppa di farro, baked peacock and wild boar.
Also quite unique is Minestra ripiena alla Brisighella, filled pasta squares cooked in broth.
Tagliatelle with hare sauce, tortelloni with truffles (the small marzuoli variety), ham, salami and other salted meats, as well as cheese all contribute to an interesting and flavourful cuisine.
Purchases and souvenirs:
The area is rich with various types of crafts and one can find traditional faience ceramics, classic and antique embroidery, wrought iron, wood sculptures, and even shoemakers who still produce antique styles.
