Small towns/ hidden gems between Parma and Milano Malpensa Airport?
My husband and I are spending 5 days in Parma, before a quick over night near the Malpensa airport followed by 9 days in France. We are planning on driving up from Parma to the Cardano Al Campo area (where we're staying before our morning flight out of Malpensa). I'm not planning on venturing into Milan (even though it sounds great, we just dont have enough time), but i'm wondering if there are any interesting little towns between Parma and Cardano that are worth wandering through. Any hidden gems (eg small restaurants, winery, dairy, deli shop, etc).
