Spend a day exploring Parma and taste the very best food this region has to offer. See how authentic Parmigiano, Prosciutto, and balsamic vinegar are produced, and visit a farm-to-table restaurant for an authentic Italian lunch. Start your foodie adventure with a visit to a producer of Parmigiano-Reggiano PDO. Learn each step involved in creating the king of cheeses, visit the wheel cathedrals where cheese wheels are stacked by the hundreds and left to mature, and end your tour with a cheese tasting. Make a short stop at the medieval village of Torrechiara to admire the 15th-century castle that dominates the landscape before continuing your tour with a visit to a family-run producer of Prosciutto di Parma PDO. Learn why this dry-cured ham can only be produced in the hills around Parma, where the conditions are perfect for natural curing. Take a break for a traditional lunch of Prosciutto di Parma PDO and other cured meats, Parmigiano, and Tortelli di Parma. Discover the selection of local wines and end lunch on a sweet note with a homemade cake. After lunch, head to the province of Reggio Emilia or Modena for a guided tour of a family-run balsamic vinegar PDO producer where you'll have the opportunity to taste the intense flavors of traditional aceto balsamico.
