Would like to go to Parma. Any ideas?
Hello, I am spending the week in Italy next week. And need an idea for a day trip from Milan. I was thinking it would be great to go to Parma and visit a parmasan farm. But I have no clue on how to get to one from the Parma train station. Any ideas on which farm to visit and how to get there?
heres a trade consortium website to check. http://www.parmigiano-reggiano.it/vis...
you could I am sure also go to the Parma tourist information office.
without looking I suspect that Patricia Wells book offers some suggestions.
Parma is a stunning town with great food. If you do a search you will find earlier posts about eating opportunities there on this Board or the International Board (for posts prior to July 06.
You might also try to find a copy of Fred Plotkin's "Italy For The Gourmet Traveler." It was published a decade ago, but reading the pages on Parma should give you a good idea of what food/dining/shopping options are available to you there.
My guess is it would be 15-20 miles from Parma train station to the nearest cheese farm.
