Parma and the Parmigiano, Modena and the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar


Emilia Romagna region is the Italian food valley, the richest in DOP and IGP products. Parma and Modena are two amazing cities of art, birthplaces of many famous people such as Arturo Toscanini, Giuseppe Verdi, Pavarotti and Enzo Ferrari. Let's explore this incredible land discovering the food products that inspired all of them. The best way to appreciate the quality of the Parmigiano Reggiano and the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is by visiting the producers. We visit both an old Caseificio and a beautiful Acetaia. But the itinerary includes a visit to both Parma's and Modena's city centre, to show the close relationship between culture and food and enjoy the stunning beauty of the Romanesque art.

A Recent Review of this tour

Micol was fabulous touring me around Parma and Modena! She was very professional and made me feel like a VIP. I so enjoyed seeing how parmesan is produced. And, I have such a new appreciation of balsamic vinegar after learning about the passion of Acetaia di Giorgio. I would tour again with Micol without a doubt!
