parmagiano cheese making facility

by pigott

We will be in Parma in mid-March - Is there a way to book a tour of the parmagiano cheese making facility? How much does it cost? It is worth it?

Re: parmagiano cheese making facility

by effeti

There are free guided tours... but in italian... with a few chances to have an interpeter if arranged from the local office.
Look here http://www.parmigiano-reggiano.it/ and then click "VISITE GUIDATE" on the lower side of the page (i hate tjose flash pages... grrrrr).

I suppose there may be a lot of different possibilities in any of the producer sites

Ciao

Hi Francesco,

Thank you very much. I checked the website, the tours are only available on Mon-Friday. Do you know any local factory that are open on Sunday?? I plan a trip to the ferrari museum, Maranello on a sunday morning and than visit the famous Parma cheese factory in the afternoon and buy some cheese, than driving to Torino afterward.

Don't have too much time, do you know any local factory that we can visit?

Appreciate your help.

Travel Tips for Parma

Octogonal impressive Baptistery

by matcrazy1

.
The Baptistery - a strange building stands in Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square) just by Duomo (Cathedral) and looks really impressive.
It's considered a transition work between the Romanesque and Gothic styles and is the vision of one man: Benedetto Antelami.

It's built on an octogonal plan (I wander why?) between 1196 and 1270 and constructed of pink (hmm... now it's less pink hehe) Verona marble.
.

When in Rome (or Parma), do as the Romans do

by Bunsch

I must have led a charmed life up to this particular venture to Italy, because in all the other countries I visited, English was either one of the standard languages or, in the case of France, I spoke the ambient tongue. I suppose I expected that many, if not most, of the hoteliers and shop keepers and transport personnel in Italy would speak at least a modicum of English. I didn't invest in a phrase-book (although it turned out my companion had brought one along). What arrogance! I have only myself to blame for the multiple times when language barriers led to absurd or disappointing results. (It is hard to ask for directions when you can't articulate where you want to go -- and can't understand when someone tries to help out.)

Probably no one reading this tip would make such a foolish mistake, but just in case...either learn enough Italian to get by, or keep a phrase-book or English-Italian dictionary close at hand. I promise you'll have a more enjoyable visit.

(And as one VT'er says in a very funny motto which I will badly paraphrase, speaking English slowly and very loudly does NOT make it more comprehensible!)

great traditional dishes

by PALLINA about A la Maison

Do not misunderstand the name of this restaurant: no nouvell cuisine at all. All dishes respect (and honour) the old tradition in Parma. The ambience is the right mix between elegance and comfort, the service is nice and accurate and dishes are suberb. Portions are adequate. On Sundays you can have "torta fritta" as well; it's a typical sort of bread, but fatter and fried. To be eaten with Parma ham or similar. Do not miss it.
Closed on Tuesday and Wed. evening We had fantastic torta fritta, hams and salami.

Battistero di Parma: Interior

by von.otter

“Every free Italian commune had in its main square the group of three great religious structures—cathedral, tower, baptistery. The three most impressive of these groups are at Parma, Pisa, and Florence.”
—from The New International Encyclopedia, 1902

I just love how Christ receives the Holy Spirit is illustrated: so naïvely graphic (see photos #1 & #2).

The paintings throughout the interior of the Baptistry are not true frescoes. Their condition has been delicate from the very beginning. At points in the past the pictures have peeled away from the wall, hanging in mid-air!

The ceiling (see photo #3) is a focal point, with its circular shape, ribbed sections and painted scenes.

Duomo di Parma: Interior

by von.otter

“The sublime frescos of Correggio caused me to stop in Parma, otherwise a fairly flat town.”
— Stendhal, during his 1819 tour of Italy

The interior of il duomo di Parma is planned in a Latin cross pattern, consisting of a nave and two aisles divided by pilasters.

Although the structure is in the Lombard Romanesque style all the interior decoration is Renaissance in origin.

There are a number of side chapels (see photo #5), some decorated in their original 14th century style, others in Renaissance style.
