Parme
The Essential
Recommended
Just as the name Parma fills readers of Stendhal and Proust with nostalgia, that of Parmesan will make gourmets drool and Mannerist art lovers swoon. On the border of Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna, this city combines art, literature, music and good food. Parma, ruled by the Farnese family for 200 years, was the birthplace and home of countless artists (including conductor Arturo Toscanini), provides a unique blend of elegant architecture and a genteel art de vivre.

A gourmet stroll in Parma

The town of Verdi and Toscanini is to be savoured in small doses, like an operatic aria, or rather like a glass of nicely chilled Lambrusco served on the terrace of a trattoria... Parma, with all due respect to Milan which would gladly pinch its title, remains THE gastronomic capital of Italy.
