Parma and Reggio Emilia are the classic Emilian cities that you should explore slowly, so that you can absorb all their history and enjoy their typical products. So we suggest an itinerary of 6 days, to allow you to explore these small but splendid cities.
We start from Reggio Emilia, City of the Tricolour Flag, where you can pakr your camper at the Foro Boario. You can reach the famous Teatro Romolo Valli by bus, plus the rest of the historic centre:
the cathedral Duomo
the room of the Tricolore Flag (open Tuesdays-Sundays 9.30-12.30: ask the porter)
Piazza San Prospero
the Basilica of Ghiara
the Valli Theatre
On the second day, we move to Cavriago, where you can park at the Acetaia Picci. There are guided tours in the morning, by booking: this is a unique experience that explores the production methods of the most famous ingredients of Italian cuisine: balsamic vinegar.
In the afternoon, we head to Parma, and park at the city’s rest-area. We spend the third day exploring the city centre, which you can reach by bus from the rest-area. Here you can visit:
the Palazzo of the Pilotta
The Farnese Theatre
The National Gallery
the Palatina Library
National Archaelogical Museum.
Please visit the site of the Tourist Information Office for more information.
Next we head to Torrechiara, where we can park at the Agriturismo La Madonnina, but always book first.
Next day you can visit the Castle and enjoy a sip of Termarina wine, one of the oldest wined produced in this region.
The fifth day is devoted to Fontanellato, 40 minutes from Torrechiara. You can see the Rocca Sanvitale but you should not miss a traditional typical lunch in the town centre.
Finally, on the last day, we visit the Mariano Sanctuary, Fontanellato, and organic company Ciao Latte, where you can park your camper, enjoy tasting sessions and see how Parmigiano Reggiano is produced.
