46 reviews
You will appreciate the real Parmigiano cheese production in a very traditional factory. It will be possible to see the when cheese makers pull the cheese from the milk vats. You will then be taken to the seasoning/storage rooms to see the final stages of production.<br>At the end of the tour there will be a degustation of different aged Parmigiano Reggiano Cheeses. <br>For Parma ham Prosciutto factory visit we will proceed to the idyllic hills of Langhirano home of Prosciutto di Parma Ham. You will move into the “environmental temperature stage”, by visiting the seasoning rooms, here characterized by the typical scents of the ham. During this stage it will be explained the method of “spillatura”, the process in which only the finest ham pasts the test, those selected by the Inspector of the Consortium will then be branded with the infamous ‘Crown of Parma’.<br>At the end of the food tour there will be a degustation of Parma ham and a glass of Malvasia, a sparkling, white local wine.

Such an interesting place with a fascinating story. When you consider the size of it, when and why it was built I am sure it will make you wonder

Great to visit this amazing theatre with very few people (there were two others when we visited). The Fornastetti plates sitting in seats was a great idea. This theatre is early 17th C and you can see all the ancient beams as you walk behind. Really kool.

Wow, wow and wow! Absolutely jaw-dropping in magnificence, and a must see if you're in Parma (or really worth a trip if you're near the city.) As an added bonus, if you visit before February 14, 2021 there's a wonderful exhibit at the theater, "Fornasetto. Theatrum Mundi" which celebrates the Fornasetti design house, architecture and the works of the Palazzo della Pilotta. The use of the Fornasetti plates in the theater was fantastic - took the experience to the next level!

Right in the centre of the city, but hidden from immediate view, just step inside this magnificent construction and be blown away. The theatre is constructed entirely from wood, and so has very special colours and acoustics. It reminded me a little of the theatre in Vincenza.

Really nice place to visit, we were there for only an hour but we enjoyed it. Staff could a little bit more “smiley”, they sounds bored. Irecommend the place.
