Every corner of the province of Parma has loads of history, culture and gastronomic delicacies to offer. On this tour, leave the city behind and discover the northern part of the province, the so-called "Culatelloshire", reign of the king of all Parma cold cuts: Culatello.


In the morning, tickle your taste buds with a visit of a Parmigiano Reggiano cheese production site nestled on the rolling Parma hills. Witness the magic moment when the cheese master takes Parmigiano Reggiano out from its vats and learn more about every phase of its production. Taste delicious Parmigiano Reggiano of different ageings and let your gourmet guide accompany you on this unique taste experience.


Travel to a traditional farmhouse where the noble Culatello is produced and cured. Here you can visit the splendid curing rooms, which once were the coldest area of the farmhouse, where natural humidity seeps in from the underground. These enchanting rooms still exist in the flatlands of Parma, near river Po, and they are the ideal environment for the curing of Culatello.

Your expert guide will explain every detail of the Culatello production, which still follows the natural rhythm of seasons. Winter months, when cold weather and fog are more intense, are the best for the curing process. Breathe the intense flavor that inebriates the curing rooms. Enjoy this unforgettable experience while you listen to this story made of time, passion and traditions. Contemplate Culatello resting before it becomes the most refined Parma cold cut. 


Have lunch in the traditional restaurant and taste pure Culatello and other local delicacies. Your menu will be a real plunge into Parma culinary tradition, including all types of local cold cuts, two main courses, dessert and local wines.

With full bellies, round your tour off with a visit to a local winery and a tasting of their best products.
