The tours to the foodie places, like parma ham and the cheese farms?

Just wanted an idea of what there is to do at this time of year really! We won't be hiring a car so this obviously limits how far we can travel in so little time.

Hi, if you only have 2 full days and no car it'll be difficult to go and see ham factories and cheese farms...

My advice would be to make the most out of these 2 days to explore the city on foot. There are plenty of sights in Parma: the Cathedral, il Battistero, Farnese Theatre and the National Gallery, the Regio Theatre, the Camera di San Paolo with the frescoes by Correggio, the Steccata church with the frescoes by Parmigianino, the Parco Ducale, the Stuard art gallery, etc etc... Just go out on a wander and take in the atmosphere, have some good food, do some shopping in the lovely shops in the centre. It's the best thing you can do!

Also have a look at past forum posts, there are plenty of suggestions!
