About
Don’t just visit the Parma hillside, taste it! Emilia is truly stunning! We will explore picture-postcard villages, vine-planted hillsides, rolling countryside. Parma hillside food trail is a mouthwatering showcase of artisan producers and foodies throughout the Parma hillside. We are passionate about food heritage, its artisan-producers' stories and the skill and innovation of its chefs. History, art, legend and folklore form the perfect blend of adventure in the Parma hillside. We will visit a Parmigiano Reggiano cheese dairy during the production process and taste different ageings of Parmigiano Reggiano. We will head to a Prosciutto plant crossing the amazing Parma hills region. We will discover the secrets of the sweetness of Prosciutto di Parma visiting all the rooms used during the production process and tasting it. We will end with a stroll through the gorgeous mediaeval hamlet of Torrechiara and a visit to the castle, still perfectly preserved in the imposing architecture.

Enriching and unforgettable day!
What a powerful experience!
Michelle of Artemilia, our lovely guide. Outstanding competence and limitless passion for the arts, architecture, history and gastronomy of Parma.
My children and I have visited local producers of Parma’s treasures: Parmigiano Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma and traditional Balsamic Vinegar.
We have met authentic Masters at work! They welcome us, showed us the production process and, of course, guided us through a delightful tasting of their finest products.
We have all fallen in love with Parma and we certainly will see Michelle again for more!

Delicious and interesting all in one!

Michelle was absolutely fantastic. We took the train from Milan to Parma and they switched their pick up and drop off location for us to the train station. It probably added 45 min Rita for the tour. She is the most passionate and informative guide. We asked A LOT of questions and she knew all the answers. She clearly loves her city and it shows. Such a nice and fun person to spend the day with!!! Guido the driver was fantastic too on very very skinny roads!

Dear Renae, I really don't know how to thank you for your ever so kind words! It was a pleasure to help you arrange another meeting place. Thank you for your kindness and sympathy and for all the stories you wished to share. I hope to meet you with all your children soon here in Emilia! A warm hug from Parma, Michelle

Excellent tour.
We had a morning in Parmigiano-Reggiani factory. It's was great. Amazing and informative to see the cheese making in progress. The salting room, nurturies and maturing caves. We got lucky a had a chance to taste Fresh Ricotta cheese 😊 it's not made every day.
Afternoon in Antica Corte Pallavicina ... The Culatello museum. We got to find out about the history of the castle, region, black pigs, culatello and the Maestro Guiseppe Verdi. It's located in beside Po river in secluded fairy tale location.
We got to taste all the cheese's, meats and salami.
Thank you Michelle we couldn't think of better tour.
😊😊😊
