If you’re interested to know how they make this amazing cheese and in the end see thousands of Parmesan wheels which is an impressive sight then it’s for you. Yes it’s commercial and costs 15 euro with a small sampling of cheeses (where you can compare the differences between 12,18,24 and 36 months aged) in the end but your chances to fall on a small producer that will let you wonder for free between the workers is highly unlikely. So is it worth it YES

The tour of the cheese factory itself was quite informative and entertaining. But we found it also to be a bit commercial - 15 euro per person is just too much for this kind of thing (just to put it into perspective, the Museum of the Vatican charges 17 euro). If you visit a place like this, you are per se interested in food and you are likely to buy something afterwards. So in my opinion, there is no need to charge for a visit, even if there is a little tasting at the end. Also, there were various tours going on at almost the same time, so it felt a bit rushed: When we arrive at the tasting, our guide immediately disappeared and went on to the next group, so there was no time for a little chat about what we just had learned. On your way out, you are forced to pass through the shop. Next time I'd rather visit a small family run business than a big factory like this.

So impressive and great explanation of the cheese making process from start to finish. The big room with all the cheese and robots that flip them was impressive! The guide was excellent and knowledgable. Highly recommend!

We stopped by this cheese factory for a group tour. We really enjoyed the stop. The staff was very friendly and our guide full of information. We visited all areas of the process, from the milk being delivered to the final product. The most interesting area is the area they store the cheese wheels to age. There are thousands of them all taken care of by a robotic system. How interesting. At the end of the tour we were able to taste different aged cheese. There is quite a bit of difference! There is also a store selling cheese, balsamic and some pasta. It was a fun stop.
