What to Expect
A discovery of the two most famous Italian typical food products: Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Prosciutto di Parma ham. In just half-day you'll have the opportunity to understand why they are so unique...Come to Parma for a real flavour adventure!

The day begins with an early morning departure for the discovery of the Food Valley’s most treasured gastronomic pleasures that have made Parma famous.

The first stop is a visit to a local Parmigiano Reggiano producer, where you will experience the production of this “King of Cheese” first hand. You will learn the time honored phases of production that have been repeated and unchanged for centuries. The aroma of fresh milk, the art of the cheese maker’s movements and the passion for a unique product will resonate in your mind for years to come. The tour concludes with a tasting of Parmigiano Reggiano at the various stages of its aging process.

Traveling through the rolling hills of Parma, you will reach the second treasured gastronomic pleasure that has rendered Parma famous for being the capital of Italy’s Food Valley: Prosciutto di Parma. You will find out why this hillside area, caressed by the wind of the Ligurian Sea, is the only place in the world that can make this perfect product!

The tour concludes with a mouthwatering treat of this wonderful Prosciutto di Parma produced by the hands of expert artisans. While on the way to your next destination, stop by for some nice pictures in front of the enchanting Torrechiara Castle. This historic fortress and its medieval grounds are considered to be one of the most beautiful and most well-conserved in Italy. The Castle dominates the valley below, perched on the romantic Parma hills.

Finally, you will be brought to a local wine cellar, producer of the “Colli di Parma” DOC wines, including the renowned Lambrusco, for a tour of the facility and for a complete tasting session/lunch consisting of typical products accompanied with wines that pair perfectly with the local cuisine.
