Tasting and Biking Parma

    What to Expect
    Enjoy an easy and short bike tour from Parma city to a Parmigiano Reggiano cheesefactory to see all production chain, the different rooms and the huge storage with more or less 10.000 wheels. After the visit we taste also 3 different agings of Parmigiano Reggiano to appreciate the changes (12 - 24 - 36 months).

    After we ride the bike in the countryside, low traffic roads: every season has different crops, colors and smell! 

    We back in Parma through a bike lane, we visit the city and for lunch we go to taste our cured meat and local wine in a special old "osteria" away from the crowd

    We start at 8:30am from "Cicletteria" near Parma train station and we finish at 12:30/1pm. We ask you to be in time if it is possible, otherwise there is a possibility to enjoy the bike tour in the afternoon

    We prefer small group to enjoy better the food and bike experience

    Length: 18km flat and easy. There are only few overpass

    The half day bike tour was one of the highlights during our first trip to Italy! I highly recommend Davide as he’s very knowledgeable about the cheese making process and a has a lot of great information about Italy to share.

    I am not too sure about young children and that distance. Our guide is the one to contact. He’s very considerate too.
