What you'll do

Don’t just visit the Parma hillside, taste it! Emilia is truly stunning! We will explore picture-postcard villages, vine-planted hillsides, rolling countryside and lots more. Parma hillside food trail is a mouthwatering showcase of artisan producers and foodies throughout the Parma hillside. We are passionate about food heritage, its artisan-producers' stories and the skill and innovation of its chefs. History, art, legend and folklore form the perfect blend of adventure in the Parma hillside. We will visit a Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese dairy during the production process and taste different ageings of Parmigiano-Reggiano. We will head to a Prosciutto plant crossing the amazing Parma hills region. We will discover the secrets of the sweetness of Prosciutto di Parma visiting all the rooms used during the production process: the salting area and machines, the first and the second salting, the preresting, the resting, the washing, the precuring and the curing rooms. The visit will be followed by tasting of Prosciutto di Parma and traditional cured meats with a glass of DOC Parma hills wine. We will end with a stroll through the gorgeous mediaeval hamlet of Torrechiara and a visit to the castle, which is considered one of the most beautiful and well preserved castles of the Parma province. If you want to discover the heart and soul of the Parma territory, this tour was made for you!
