Description

Parma is world-famous for 2 delicious exports: Prosciutto di Parma (Parma ham) and Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan cheese). Taste your way around the small city as you enjoy tastings of the cheese, ham, wine and balsamic vinegar that all originate from this region on this full-day exploration tour.

Start your food-tasting day at an authentic dairy where Parmigiano-Reggiano is made. Sample the strong flavours of this well-known cheese and learn how it's made – the same way as it's been made for over 1,000 years.

On your journey through the scenic countryside, stop at the medieval village of Torrechiara, with its imposing fortress-like castle, for photos and to see daily life in the region.

Next, learn how Prosciutto di Parma is produced and discover why this is the only region in the world that can produce it. Sit down to a lunch of typical Parma delicacies, with wine from the Colli di Parma region, including Lambrusco and Malvasia.

After lunch, travel to the nearby province of Reggio Emilia or Modena to discover Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale (balsamic vinegar). Meet the owner of a company that produces this product and get to grips with the way it is produced and bottled.
