A trip full of history, culture and traditions, of spiritual places or pleasing oases for different tastes: whatever your interests may be, Parma won't let you down. The city, with its intimate historic center, is perfect for a peaceful stroll or for enjoying the elegant palaces, monuments, piazzas and hidden treasures of the area.
A simple bike, possibly rented in the city, allows you to get to the surrounding countryside or to the beautiful Parmesan hills in search of castles and ancient parishes, while water enthusiasts can go to the Grande Fiume and listen to the sound of the river, reliving stories of the past told by Guareschi and Bacchelli.

Winding around the province, three different Roads of wines and tastes invite visitors to experience real local food. Highlighting gastronomic delicacies, the itineraries reflect the influence of history and culture and the craft of man.
The Road of Culatello crosses the vast plain along the river Po, area of production of the sweet and sparkling Fortana wine and Spalla Cotta ham of San Secondo.
Worldwide famous Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and mouthwatering slices of Prosciutto di Parma and Salame of Felino can be tasted along the Road of Ham and wines running south, while sipping the Wines of the hills.
Last but not least, the Road of Porcino mushrooms will bring visitors to discover the mountains of Taro, Ceno and Baganza valleys, their traditions and stunning views.
