  2. Tour Itinerary

    09.30 - Parmigiano factory visit

    Meet our guide in Parma and go visit an authentic producer of Parmigiano-Reggiano PDO. Discover how the King of all cheeses has been made in the same way since the benedectine monks invented it centuries ago: you'll first see the the hand making, then the salt pools and finally the "wheel cathedrals", real walls of cheese in a single room. Tasting at the end. 

    11.00 - Torrechiara Castle visit

    Photo stop at the medieval village of Torrechiara dominated by its romantic castle: For sure the most spectacular amidst the Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza and Northern Italy, dating back to 1448 DC, built by Sir Pier Maria Rossi for his lover Bianca Pellegrini.

    11.15 - Visit to the Prosciutto di Parla

    Visit one of the family-run ham factories producing the mythical Prosciutto di Parma DOP. You will get to know why the best ham can only be made in the hills of Parma, where the "Marino" wind blows from the Ligurian Sea through the so-called Food Valley of Italy. Tasting at lunch.

    13.30 - Wine Pairing Lunch

    Full lunch based on the typical products of the territory in a farm-to-table restaurant: Parmigiano, Prosciutto as well as other kind of local cold cuts, a typical filled pasta dish (tortelli di Parma), homemade cakes. All paired up with local wines like Lambrusco and Malvasia!
