Parma and its food valley. A top choice for all seasons 

By Friday, 01 July 2022 13:46

Parma and its food valley is a top choice for all seasons. The city of Parma and its surrounding area offer a kaleidoscope of possibilities and experiences for anyone seeking an alternative to the classic and, perhaps for some, jaded choice between the sea and the mountains.

From the heart of the Food Valley to a treasure trove of artistic wonders an an inexhaustible reservoir of natural and historic itineraries, this area has so much to offer that is different.

Culatello cured Parma ham

Speaking of food and wine at the Antica Corte Pallavicina in Polesine Parmense, Luciano and Massimo Spigaroli have turned an ancient 14th century castle on the floodplain of the river Po into the realm of gastrofluvial cuisine. Prominent on the menu is Culatello, the sweetest and most expensive cut of cured Parma, ham which here also boasts a museum and the world's oldest operating maturing cellars.

Salsomaggiore for castles and concerts

Visit Salsomaggiore (www.visitsalsomaggiore.it) and you will find many opportunities for activities in an area traditionally associated with spas and wellness. On the hills of Salsomaggiore you can visit the Castles of Tabiano, Contignaco and Scipione dei Marchesi Pallavicino, and the Pinko Arena has concerts and shows with famous Italian and international artists scheduled up to September.

The Upper Valtaro Valley is one of the province's best-kept naturalistic jewels, with hundreds of mountain trails that stretch to the regional limits and are ideal for mountain bikers, while Elena Galli's Fili d'Erba Farm at the WWF Ghirardi Oasis in Borgotaro is popular for its programme of sensory experiences with horses.
