Description

Discover 2 of the reasons the small city of Parma is on the world's gourmet map: Prosciutto di Parma (Parma ham) and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Delight in the flavours of the cheese, ham and wine that originate from this region as you taste your way around the city.

Start your gourmet adventure with a visit to an authentic dairy where Parmigiano-Reggiano is made. Taste the sharp flavours of the cheese and learn how it was made by monks 1,000 years ago, just as it is today.

As you head through the rolling Emilia-Romagna countryside, stop for pictures at the medieval village of Torrechiara, with its fortress-like castle dominating the landscape.

You also learn how the famous Prosciutto di Parma is produced and discover why this delicious ham can only be made in this small territory. For a delicious finale, indulge in a lunch of typical Parma delicacies with wine from the Colli di Parma region, such as Lambrusco and Malvasia…

I really can’t say enough great things about this company. After a disasterous ordeal with the car rental company who failed to get us our rental TWICE in two different cities, we had no vehicle 12 hours before we were supposed to meet our guide. After making a late night call, both the guide and Food Valley worked their magic and arranged for personal pickups with a driver....all at 8:00 at night. Any of them could have told us it was late and it was our responsibility to have a vehicle, but they went above and beyond. All the while. Communicating with us in English.

The tour was perfect; exactly what we had hoped for. And our tour guide, Amalda (sp?), was the best.
