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

I am a travel agent from Lebanon and have organized several group tours as well as individual tours of Italy with Italy Vacation Specialists. I highly recommend them as one of the very best tour operators in Italy to work with, given their professionalism and work ethic which I feel is second-to-none in the travel industry. All of the staff, the guides, the coaches and even the meals we enjoyed were fantastic throughout the tour. Italy is a beautiful country, though we realize very complicated to work in and for this reason we were all very appreciative to the hard work we felt when into the services we received and personal service. No doubt, we will be returning to Italy many times again and definitely working with the IVS team!
