Visit Emilia Romagna, Travel Tips – Parma Hillside Food Trail



We know that sooner or later the emergency will end and we will also return to travel!

Lately, soon after the lock down, we saw fish swimming in transparent water and dolphins jumping in the lagoon in Venice, birds flying again in pure air and squirrels jumping in the parks of Milan. Tourism will start again, but shouldn’t all this teach us something?

Once you will have chosen Parma do not forget this tip: don’t just visit the Parma hillside, taste it! We are passionate about local food heritage, its artisan-producers’ stories and the skill and innovation of its chefs. The Parma hillside food trail is a mouthwatering showcase of artisan producers and foodies throughout the Parma hillside.
