Parma and Emilia Romagna. Fine food and wines, music and unhurried holidays

Tuesday, 19 October 2021 09:48

This summer the Emilia Romagna region attracted chiefly French, German, Dutch and Swiss visitors, and every year from September its appeal are the many events and festivals focussing on its famous foods and wines like the Gastronomic September in Parma and the Wine Festival in the Piacentino region. There is something too for music lovers with the annual Verdi Festival which always draws international visitors.

It is a central festival for us, this is 100% the land of Giuseppe Verdi.  In one weekend you can see four operas in Parma and Busseto - said Cristiano Casa, Parma’s Councillor for Tourism. 

A generous region with gastronomic delights and great music 

 

Emilia is a land just waiting to discovered, and it is wonderfully authentic. This is the land of food par excellence with products like Parma ham, Parmesan cheese, Culatello di Zibello, Salame Felino, Balsamic Vinegar, Piacenza’s cured meats and excellent wines.

We also have our three great art cities, and this year Parma is the Italian Capital of Culture. Our theatre season opens in early December with the Regio in Parma, the Municipale in Piacenza and the Valli in Reggio Emilia as well as in the many boutique theaters around the provinces.

“At the World Travel Market the focus will be on food and castles”

 
At the World Travel Market we will be focussing on two elements: food and castles. We have 50 castles; they can all be visited, and there are excellent services and stunning landscapes around them.  Then we have trails like the Via Francigena and outdoors activities in the Apennines mountain range and along the Po river. In 2022 we will present the region as a place of “slow mix” made for unhurried holidays. We’ll promote this at trade fairs and through the Internet which we have found gives an excellent return.  The region is also very well linked with excellent high speed, Intercity and regional trains. By car we are on the main north-south motorway axis, and we are equidistant from Bologna and Linate Airports
