I'm going to be in the area for 2 weeks from 27/9 and would be greatful for ideas for things to do on day trips. Parmesan factories, other food related experiences and cultural places would be welcome. The purpose of my visit is not a holiday, so I wont be spending the whole two weeks on leisure. My family are actually from the area, but that means that I'm actually not that familiar with the area, as most of my time in the past has been spent visiting relatives.
I can speak Italian and will have a car, so prefer to avoid cities and their ZTL's. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
