The Parma food tour starts early in the morning so that we can watch every step in the production of Parma’s famous cheese and learn the cheese-master’s secrets.
After a session tasting Parmigiano Reggiano cheeses of different ages, the Parma food tour continues along the picturesque hills of Langhirano to a Parma ham factory. Parma ham is distinctive for its palatable sweetness and remarkable color, not to mention the passion of its producers! Last but not least on the Parma food tour is the traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena or Reggio Emilia. This very traditional product, which is still based on family production, is aged in wooden barrels of different sizes. Its warm color and intense flavors are unforgettable. A typical lunch at a local farmhouse trattoria for a real taste of Parma fresh pasta is a must! You can opt to end the Parma food tour with a wine experience in one of the best wineries of the hills or a guided visit to the gorgeous Torrechiara castle of the XV century, where you will hear the eternal love story associated with one of the best-preserved castles in the region. The Parma cheese factory, the Parma ham factory and the Traditional balsamic vinegar producer have been personally selected by your Exploraemilia tourist guides for the human face that accompanies their excellent products.
