In Parma there are three routes of taste. Between the Via Emilia and the river Po the Strada del Culatello of Zibello praises the "king of meats and salumi (various kind of cold meat usually made of pork)” and other
traditional delicacies such as raw shoulder of Palatone or pork throat, basis of rich appetizers and off-hour snacks. Along the Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori dei Colli di Parma you can enjoy quality products as Parma ham, the black truffle of Fragno, which a great fair is dedicated to, and the salami of Felino. La Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori del Fungo Porcino Borgotaro oncerns the valleys on the regional borders with Tuscany and Liguria. The cuisine of the place offers rustic pies with simple and genuine ingredients.
Beautiful, graceful and mysterious: the Baptistery of Parma, the symbolic monument of the city, stands beside the Cathedral. Everything is based on the number eight. Eight like the number that represents infinity. Eight like the symbol of rebirth, as chosen by Benedetto Antelami, the brilliant architect who designed it in 1196.
Naturally, there is much more to see in Parma. The city has a Parisian ambience, an elegant and monumental centre, excellent food and wine.
