by Michelle Costa

A real full immersion in the flavours of Parma and the Emilia Romagna region discovering the secrets of the most famous typical products of the territory!

Visiting a Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese Factory is like taking a step back into the past. It means running over nine centuries of history. During the tour you will learn the secrets of this unique cheese, which is still today produced as hundreds of years ago completely without preservatives and additives. You will be able to watch the cheese master’s experienced hands during the cooking and his deft movements during the lifting of the cheese out of the cauldron and after that … the resting, salting and ageing rooms, with their overwhelming aromas! The visit will end with a pleasant tasting, a real pleasure for the senses!

Visit to a Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese Factory during the production process followed by a tasting session.
After the visit it is possible to purchase genuine products at the Cheese Factory retail shop.
At the end of the visit transfer on the hills of Parma to visit one of the plants where the inimitable Prosciutto di Parma (Parma Ham) is produced.
Stop on the way at the foot of the castle of Torrechiara to take some pictures from the outside. View of the castle and the medieval hamlet of Torrechiara. Visit to a Parma Ham Plant followed by tasting and opportunity of purchasing local products at the end of the visit.
