August 9 we visited Parma and toured with Laura. It was a wonderful tour of the Parmigiana, Parma ham and Balsamic factories. Outstanding and very informative. Laura did a great job and will pick you up at your hotel or train station.

Try Modena or Bologna if you can't find anything in Parma. We based ourselves in Bologna and took the train to Parma where we met Laura.
