    A fantastic tour full of learning, beautiful scenery, and food! The bus picks can pick you up at various locations throughout Parma. It takes you to the various locations in the Parma area, I was able to also go to a Balsamic Vinegar tour as well due to someone needing to change their arrangements. The tour takes a good portion of the day, as the various sites can be quite far from one another. The Parmigiano-Reggiano tour included seeing them start some fresh Parmesan Cheese, and you got to taste it in its first state, then you got to see the various phases of development, culminating in the aging room, where you get to try some Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese at a few different aging timeframes. This helps you to understand and appreciate the differences that aging introduces. The Prosciutto di Parma tour takes you to the hills just outside of Parma, where you go to a cute factory and get the see the Prosciutto in the various stages of production. You end in the restaurant where they have some Prosciutto di Parma, Wine and Water waiting for you. Finally, I was able to add on a Balsamic Vinegar tour where you got to see the Balsamic barrels and they explained the aging processes and the differences between the stringing DOP Balsamic and the less stringent IGP Balsamic. Finally, it ended in a tasting where you got to try various IGP Balsamic’s, their DOP Balsamic, and various other products that they offer. All tours ended in a shop, allowing you the opportunity to buy some cheese, ham, balsamic and other apparel straight from the source! Overall, it was a really fun day, where I got to learn a lot about some of my favorite products and how they are produced and of course got to try them right where they are made! Well worth the time and money!
