the beautiful city of Parma and its famous "Prosciutto"

On the last day of our Bologna vacation we will visit the beautiful city of Parma.

Parma is not only famous for the prosciutto, but also as home to one of the oldest universities in the world.

We’ll visit a The Ziveri Prosciuttificio, a small "Parma Prosciutto" producer that will explain the history, significance and importance of this very important staple of Italian charcuterie.

We’ll have a tasting in the cellar where they age "custom order" prosciutto, where you will even see some with our name, as they are aging prosciutto that we use in some of our locations.

Next, we will head to Parma and take in the sites. Some of the major attractions are the Cathedral or “Duomo”. With origins dating back to the middle ages, it features impressive pieces of artwork by such notable renaissance artists as Antonio da Correggio and also that of Luchino Bianchini and Giambono da Bissone. 

Lunch will be at a trattoria in the city of Parma before we head back to Bologna.
