What you can expect
If reincarnation ever becomes an option, pray you come back as a Parmesan. Where else do you get to cycle to work through streets virtually devoid of cars, lunch on fresh-from-the-attic prosciutto and aged Parmigiano Reggiano, quaff full-bodied Sangiovese wine in regal art-nouveau cafes, and spend sultry summer evenings listening to classical music in architecturally dramatic opera houses.
The tour starts early in the morning (at 08:20) to reach a cheese factory and watch the Parmigiano Reggiano production: from the curd to the ageing. At the end, you can also taste this amazing cheese, famous all over the world.
After the visit, come back to Parma to discover the city bicycling on its bike lanes and through its parks and city centre. You will also visit the most famous monuments.
The tour finishes in a typical delicatessen to taste cured meats and typical dishes.
