Parma Food Tours-not to be missed

Jump to last reply

If you are considering a tour of the Parma region, don't hesitate to contact www.parmagolosa.it.

The P. R. Cheese tour was great. The company we visited makes 10 wheels each day. Our guide (who was fantastic) took us to a warehouse with 30,000 wheels ripening. The Balsamic Vinegar tour was of a small traditional concern. We are buying inferior brands at our markets--the real stuff taste sooo much better. And, the ham factory tour was "delicious". Now I know why it is so expensive. The two teens with us enjoyed the tours as much as we did.

Mirco from Parmagolosa set up our hotel reservations at Relais Fontevivo
Via Roma 1/A - 43010 Fontevivo (Parma). This was a wonderful old monastery with a great restaurant. Without A/C at the moment, the rooms are small with updated baths. Overlooking farmland, it was a welcome change from Rome and Florence.

To get there: We took the train from Florence to Bologna, taxi to the airport for the rental car (Thrifty was cheaper than any others and had an automatic--and they were prompt and easy to work with). It was Sunday and this is the only place to pick up a rental car on Sunday! We drove to Parma and drove back to Bologna airport the next evening. We then took a taxi to the Hotel Paradise in Bologna. A long day, but worth it.
