Overview
Enjoy a tasty introduction to the Emilia-Romagna region’s culinary delights: this half-day tour is perfect for time-pressed travelers. In the morning, depart from central Parma, and be sure to come with an appetite. First see how Parmigiano-Reggiano—often known as “the king of cheese”—is made, and enjoy plenty of samples. Then, transfer to another producer to try classic Prosciutto di Parma. Your tour also includes a sightseeing stop at the pretty, medieval village of Torrechiara.
