Art and Food in the Creative City of Gastronomy


With this tour you'll see, taste and smell the beauty of Parma! The walking tour starts from the baroque Teatro Farnese (mondays closed, sundays short opening), to follow we'll see the the Cathedral and the Baptistery, two magnificent buildings. At the end we'll walk through the lanes of the centre to discover the charm of a non touristy place, to see (and maybe to try) some delicious pastry and to smell the ancient scent of the Violetta, the perfume of our beloved Duchess Maria Luigia.
During the tour you'll also admire the beautiful façade of the Opera House, the exterior of the Steccata Church and the relaxing Garibaldi Square, with the cafès, the shops and the restaurants. If you want to try our most typical food products the tour can end at a local trattoria or a deli, where you can taste the most famous cured meats and cheeses from our region as the Parmigiano Reggiano and the Prosciutto di Parma.

If you want to do a full day guided tour, in Parma there are many options, request me a program.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful tour of Parma with Giulia. She managed to customize our needs on a very short notice. Her knowledge of local history, music and art in phenomenal. The restaurant that she recommended was phenomenal. Thank you, Giulia! We hope to be back one day to have a chance to really explore Parma and it's surroundings.
