Cities and Towns in Emilia-Romagna

The city of Parma is an often overlooked jewel of a city located in the region of Emilglia Romagna in Italy's central north which we highly recommend.   For those interested this area of Italy for the gastronomic highlights of the area, it is an absolute must see and we include in our top three MUST SEE areas in this region for a variety of reasons.

1.  The city of Parma has a very unique feel due to the Parisian influence by Maria Luigia of Austria  married to Napoleon and her influence to date is felt everywhere in this unique city, known as the 'Paris of Italy' and you can feel it everywhere.  You can read more about her history and her unique influence on the architecture, parks and surrounding area on the city of Parma's own website here:

2. This is a city where food, architecture and fashion go hand in hand and there is nowhere in Italy we feel the best foods, wines and overall culture are better felt

3.  For those who love gardens, art and a relaxed yet high-vibe feel, there is nowhere better in Italy than we have found to date that has it all going on and just a few things to consider going on here....

1. Parmigiano Reggiano also known as (A.K.A), Parmesan Cheese comes from here 
2. Prosciutto Back Pig Ham
3. Mutti Tomatoe Sauce, considered the very best tomatoe sauce both bought and sold by more Italians in Italy than any other brand of Tomatoe Sauce comes from here
4. Barilla Pasta 
6.  Balsamic Vinegar / Aceto Balsamico di Modena
7. Lumbrusco Wine 

Basically this is the region and Parma is one of the towns in the Emilia Romagna regions which truly offers everything in terms of all wonderful things Italian.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
