Things to do in  Parma

Welcome to Parma

Parma sits at the epicenter of Emilia-Romagna’s Food Valley, the birthplace of many of Italy’s culinary superstars. Great wheels of aged Parmigiano Reggiano cheese are made here, as is sweet Prosciutto di Parma ham, fizzy Lambrusco wine, and aromatic balsamic vinegar—the city is a mecca for food tours, cooking classes, and other culinary adventures. Between tucking into plates piled high with charcuterie, visitors explore the pretty (and pedestrian-only) old town, home to historic cafés, an imposing cathedral complex, and a sumptuous opera house where local composer Verdi once directed performances.
