Why Consider Parma for your next vacation.

Anyone who loves Italian food and enjoys learning all about its preparation should definitely consider a holiday in Parma, home of Parma Ham and Parmesan Cheese.
Parma is an elegant city with many artistic and architectural treasures to visit and aside from all the brilliant food you will enjoy in Parma, the city has many other attractions you should not miss.  To absorb some of the atmosphere, walk around the lovely old town, mingle with the locals and enjoy an espresso at one of the many pavement cafes while you plan your walking tour.  Be sure to visit the Cathedral, or Duomo which dates from the 12th century and contains a superb dome fresco by Correggio.  You can see more frescoes by this famous artist in the Chamber of St. Paul and in the church of San Giovanni Evangelista.  Art lovers should also visit the Church of St Mary of Steccata and the National Gallery to see works by Parmigianino, another famous artist who hails from Parma.
Opera lovers should try to visit Parma in September for the Verdi festival – imagine attending one of his operas in the fabulous Regio Theatre!  There are even more things to see and do just a short distance outside the city, which makes Parma an ideal base for exploring the whole of the Emilio Romagna region;  visit some castles, enjoy the Ferrari and Ducati museums or go on a wine tour of the Lambrusco wineries.


Apartment Accommodation in Parma.

You could choose to stay in a hotel in Parma, but renting an apartment is a far better bet, especially for families or groups of friend travelling together.  Not only will you have more room to spread out in, but you have the advantage of having your own kitchen where you can prepare some of your meals.  Not only will you save a great deal if you can self-cater some of your meals (at least breakfast!) but it is such fun to be able to visit the local food stores and markets and buy products that are seldom or ever seen outside Italy!  The food stores in Parma are just bursting with some of the best products of the region and you can indulge all your senses without breaking the bank if you have a kitchen to experiment in.


Cookery Lessons in Parma

Holidays go by in the blink of an eye, but your holiday experiences can live on forever!  If you want to be reminded of the great flavours of Italy you should consider taking a cookery class or two so that you can dazzle your friends back home with genuine home-made pasta and other regional specialities.  You will also learn many new ways of using Parma ham in your cooking and the many uses of Parmesan cheese.  Be sure to book your lessons in advance to avoid being disappointed.

Very Nice Morning.

I visited the Food Tours with my wife, we were looking forward to this some time ago and I can state that this tour bring to us very interesting time and experience in spite of the fact that we departed from Milano by morning train at 5,50 am. Our guide was young man and we enjoyed all morning together talking not only about the parmazan, balsamic and parma ham. I really appreciate it. He was very communicate, his driving was safety, very polite. Parmazan farm - amazing, balsamic farm -

Wonderful Foodies Tour!

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the Foodies Tour, which included stops at producers of cheese, balsamic vinegar and cured meat. Paolo was an amazing tour guide – he's extremely knowledgeable, kind and a great communicator. We learned so much! It was really nice to be in a smaller group and most of the producers we visited were small so we were able to get a close up view of the processes. We'd highly recommend Emilia Delizia as this tour was truly authentic and a highlight of our trip!

thank you for the kind review

The tour of the Parmesan Reggiano cheese dairy, Balsamic Vinegar farm, the Parma ham and lunch at the organic vineyard was thoroughly enjoyed by our family of 4. Paolo was a gracious and knowledgeable host for the day and provided us with insights to the production of the cheese and balsamic vinegar which was enhanced due to his chemistry background. We would thoroughly recommend this tour to those interested in the specialities produced in the Modena region.

The tour was perfect. I think Paolo would be a splendid ambassador for Italy in the EU. He knows how excellent Italian food and eating together can solve many major problems, and can stop aggressive behavior. Not the hunt for more money, but the well being of family and friends counts. Paolo shows us the products of ages of civilization and he did this like an artist. So after the tour we really love Italia more and we'll come back. We will call you Paolo, Thanks!

Following two tours with your guides this week I would like to express my thanks for some wonderful experiences.
Monday we did the tour of cheese making, balsamic and Salami which was very good and the guide Paolo was very knowledgeable.
The truffle hunt tour today was absolutely amazing, the guide Stefano is pure gold and the tour was built with much thought. Our best experience so far, by far.

Looking forward to more tours and fun next time we are in Italy.

Super food and super cars

The group (and me) was VERY satisfied. We really enjoyed the Parmegiano Regiano which was interesting and we got to buy some delicate and cheap cheese, the same with the balsamico. The Ferrari driving was off course an experience for life. The Winery lunch felt very genuine and the people there was really welcoming and nice people. The genuine feeling there was however the big plus for us.
Paolo was excellent as our guide. He also felt very genuine. He did not talk just for the sake of talking, but when he had something to say he did it in a respectful and nice way. Everyone in the group really liked him.

Thank you!

Lovely food tour and cooking class

Hi Gabriele:

I wanted to let you know what a great day we had this past Friday on our tour with Jacamo. (Probably not spelling it right) He was very nice and explained everything to us. It sure gives you a new appreciation when you are slicing cheese. 🙂 Our tour ended with him taking us to the vineyard for a tour and lunch and there, Paolo, the owner could not have been more nicer. It was a perfect ending.

Please let Jacamo know what a great job he did and how much we really appreciated it and his knowledge

Food tour in Modena

The website is well structured and we received a prompt answer to all questions. Gabriele supported us with all information we needed and the organization before the trip was excellent.

We had an air conditioned van, which was very relaxing through the whole tour. The first stop was the parmigiano production, which was very impressive and interesting. We could learn and especially see all the different steps and even taste the various aged parmigiano. The second step was the balsamic vinegar tasting. Finally the meat part was interesting in the museum but we hoped that we also could see more about the production and their work, but the tasting was delicious. In overall we had a very informative and well accommodated half day with our guide

Fantastic Tour!!

It was great experience! We visited Parmesan cheese production, Balsamic vinegar farm, Ham museum and Farmer's lunch. Our guide gave us a detailed explanation, we were very satisfied. An excellent tour for a reasonable price, highly recommended.

One thought on “Parma Food Experience”

  1. We are a group of 4 who are planning to stay in Parma for three nights from10th Sept next. Could you please let us have information on your 3 night Parma food experience? One of our group, Frances Matas, actually did your 1 day tour in Jan last year so we probably don’t want to do this tour again but would like to do the parmesan cheese part of it and maybe wineries or anything else you can suggest. Also could you please let me know whether there will be an opera playing during this time? Thank you.
