What to expect

Did you know it? Historical evidence shows that already in 1200-1300, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese had reached its perfect taste and consistency that has remained unchanged until the present days. This was - and still is - possible through a very careful work of passing on exactly the same instructions, tips, secrets and gestures thorough different generations of "Parmesan masters".

Therefore, the most recent history of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is essentially the history of how 350 small dairy artisans from Parma obtained the official recognition of their key role in preserving the processing methods and the very high quality level of the product.

Through this tour you will have the chance to visit an exclusive cheese factory that produces the worldwide famous Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
You will dive into the maturing rooms of Parmesan, seeing the different ageing stages and hundreds of precious cheese rounds. An expert guide will lead you through the history of this cheese and explain how it's made, from the milk stage to the actual aged round.
Towards the end of the tour comes the most delicious part: the tasting of differently aged versions Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
