Parmigiano and Culatello, Cycling Tour along the land of Parma.
Visit and Tasting on a dairy farm+cured meat factory | Full day-55 Km
A laid-back cycling itinerary will lead us from Parma to the banks of the river Po. This itinerary unfolds on the bicycle tracks on the river banks and on minor roads with little traffic. From Parma we will first reach Colorno, famous for its Palace and its garden of the Renaissance and for the ALMA international cooking school, managed by Gualtiero Marchesi. We will cycle on towards the river Po and visit a dairy farm belonging to the Consorzio del Parmigiano (Consortium of the Parmigiano) where we will taste two different types of Parmigiano, one aged for 24 months and the other aged for 36. After this we will proceed to visit one of the 24 producers of Culatello di Zibello D.o.p. Lunch will be served there, and we will have the chance to try different kinds of Culatello, local cured meats, tortelli alle erbe and homemade cakes. We will head back to Parma later in the afternoon.
