The area between Parma and Piacenza has plenty of history and castles, and almost all of them can be visited.

We’ll make an early start to visit one of the castles near Parma and also one of the producers of the famous salame di Felino, where we can try some of their products.

The tour continues with a visit to a ham producer (Prosciutto di Parma is the best in the world!) where we will see the complete process that the leg of pork undergoes from its arrival through all the various stages of maturing which we can visit.

After the company tour we’ll enjoy a hearty, traditional lunch, with homemade pasta specialties from Parma and all the company’s products.

In the afternoon there’ll either be a choice of visiting Parma, the Royal Palace of Colorno, the Magnani Rocca Foundation or one of the other magnificent castles in the area.
