Day trips from Bologna by train?

So I will be in Bologna for three days in September. While there, I am looking to take advantage of the great train links to the nearby heritage cities of Ravenna, Modena, Parma and Ferrara.

I know I won't get chance to do them all as I want to to enjoy Bologna but it's a great base for day trips. I enjoy architecture and particularly enjoy the old, medieval cities.

So which of these would you recommend and why?

Which cities would you prioritise over the others?

Thanks for any help you can give.

1. Day trip from Bologna to Modena by train. I want to tour the Ferrari car factory. What are the train times to Modena and how long of a train ride is it? What is the cost of the train and what is the cost to tour the Ferrari car factory.

2. Day trip from Bologna to Ravenna by train. Again how long is the train ride there and the cost?

Check train times upto 12 June, Bologna to Modena or Ravenna, which should be similar to your dates. www.trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

Visits to the Ferrari factory are restricted and you need to contact http://www.ferrari.it

Visits can be made to the Ducati factory www.ducati.com/company/visit_us/index.do
