    Ham & Cheese: Parma for Foodies

Ham & Cheese: Parma for Foodies

  • City: Parma
  • Duration: The half-day tour is approximately 6 hours in length; the full-day tour lasts approximately 8 hours.

If you are a foodie, you can’t miss this culinary experience in Parma! You will spend the day tasting and learning everything about prosciutto, Parmigiano-Reggiano and balsamic vinegar.

Overview

Are you a foodie? Does the sight of rosy-pink prosciutto make your mouth water? Does Parmigiano-Reggiano increase your heartbeat? Does sweet, thick balsamic vinegar occupy a position of honor in your personal culinary Pantheon? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then this is the tour for you!

Your day will begin early at a caseificio where Parmigiano-Reggiano, the "King of Cheeses," is produced. You'll watch as master artisans create what is truly one of the most delicious foods in the world. After a short stop in the medieval village of Torrechiara, dominated by a romantic, fairytale castle, you will drive into the hills surrounding Parma to visit a producer of Prosciutto di Parma. Traditionally sliced thin to the point of near-transparency, this succulent delight melts in your mouth -- you will learn just how it is made and cured to perfection.

Then the wine cellar of a local vineyard situated in the scenic, rolling hills of DOC "Colli di Parma" wine country will open its doors to you. Following the cellar tour, comes an abundant lunch of typical foods and wines in the winery's beautiful tasting room.

For those booking the Full Day Option, after lunch you will continue on to the province of Modena to visit an acetaia where balsamic vinegar is produced. The owner himself will demonstrate how the humble grape is transformed into a powerful, flavorful and magnificent product, and there will be a tasting session at the end of the tour.

This tour can be booked with transportation or without. In the dropdown below, choose the option that is best for you.
