Modena is a landlocked (it does not border the ocean) province in central Emilia-Romagna. It has an area of 2,688 km2 (1,037.8 sq mi).[2].

The provincial capital, the city of Modena, is surrounded by two rivers, both right tributaries of the Po river: the Secchia and the Panaro. The city is at about 38 km (24 mi) of Bologna, the capital of the region.

The province is bordered to the north by Lombardy (Mantua province), to the east by the Ferrara province and the Metropolitan City of Bologna, to the west by the Reggio Emilia province and to the south by Tuscany (Lucca and the Pistoia provinces).

The highest mountain in the province is Monte Cimone (44°11′38″N 10°41′56″E / 44.19389°N 10.69889°E / 44.19389; 10.69889 (Monte Cimone, Italy)); it is 2,165 m (7,103 ft).[4], the highest mountain in the Emilia-Romagna region and of the northern Apennines.
