Parma and Parmigiano, Modena and 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.

Enjoyed an educational and jam-packed day with Micol Mazzeo, traveling from Bologna to Parma where we saw the highlights, discovered the manufacture of Parmigiano-Reggiano, enjoyed a prosciutto tasting, a delightful lunch at Angiol d'Or near the Duomo, then on to Modena for a wonderfully educational balsamic vinegar tasting and a "best of Modena" tour. Micol was very knowledgeable about the art and architecture of the area, made dinner reservations for us in Bologna and walked us back to our hotel.
