Parma is world-famous for 2 delicious exports: Prosciutto di Parma (Parma ham) and Parmigiano (Parmesan cheese). Taste your way around the small city as you enjoy tastings of the cheese, ham, wine, and balsamic vinegar that all originate from this region on this full day exploration tour.

Start your food-tasting day at an authentic dairy where Parmigiano-Reggiano is made. Sample the strong flavors of this well-known cheese and learn how it's made—the same way as it's been made for over 1,000 years.

On your journey through the scenic countryside, stop at the medieval village of Torrechiara, with its imposing fortress-like castle, for photos and to see daily life in the region.

Next, learn how Prosciutto di Parma is produced and explore why this is the only region in the world that can produce it. Sit down to a lunch of typical Parma delicacies, with wine from the Colli di Parma region, including Lambrusco and Malvasia.

After lunch, travel to the nearby province of Modena to explore Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena (balsamic vinegar). Meet the owner of a company that produces this product and get to grips with the way it is produced and bottled.
