Parma & Tasting

With the Parma & Tasting private tour you can discover Parma and the food valley, tour from La Spezia to the Italian gourmet valley: Parmigiano cheese, Parma prosciutto and much more.
Meet up your driver in La Spezia and set off for a delicious day in one of the main Italian destinations for foodies: Parma.

We start the day with a visit to a cheese maker to learn how the world-renown Parmigiano Reggiano is produced and of course to taste it! We will discover the long history of this product that has its origins in the Middle Ages and that today is still produced following the same ancient techniques. In fact it has been granted the PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin) certification.

Then we’ll move to the historic centre of the elegant Parma, with its wonderful Piazza Duomo where the Romanesque Cathedral and the pink marble octagonal Baptistery are. Here you will have time for a self-guided visit of the city and for some shopping.

Next stop is a local wine farm where we will stop for a delicious lunch. Afterwards visit the farm and taste its wonderful PDO Parma ham (Prosciutto di Parma), one of the icons of this area and of the Italian made products exported all over the world.
