Medieval Dozza perches on a hill not far from Imola overlooking the River Sellustra valley, surrounded by vineyards and gently rolling countryside. The fulcrum of the old town, with its characteristic linear form, is the mighty Sforza Castle, with the shops and houses spread at its feet.
When you enter the town, the murals illuminating the walls of the buildings are so breathtaking that you hardly know where to look first. To make sure you don’t miss even one, you can download the Muro Dipinto (painted wall) app.
Our advice would be to begin at the Castle, perhaps with a visit to the Regional Wine Shop (closed on Mondays) to sample some choice beverages, then dive into the warren of vibrantly painted narrow streets. If you adore art and are wild about wine, then Dozza, just a short hop from the Via Aemilia, is a trip not to miss.
