      Culinary Museums

      by manuna Online Now Jul 3, 2012 at 6:26 AM

      Usually while visiting new places we devote some time to the traditional culinary,its production, tasting, coocking etc. This year we will travel through Emilia-Romagna. I noticed that there are a lot of museums not far from Parma: Prosciuto di Parma,Parmigiano, Tomato and even Culinary House (Casa Artusi). Is any of them worth seeing? What I can skip? Unfortunately most of the sites are in Italian, so it's really hard to evaluate anything :(
      May be you can suggest something absolutely different in this sphere?
      Thank you in advance?

    • Train Station in Parma

      by Jfuhrman Online Now May 1, 2011 at 3:17 PM

      We will be traveling to Parma from Florence via train and would like to stay at Antica Corte Relais Pallavincina and explore Parma. We understand that Antica is a bit of a drive from Parma, so we are wondering if there is somewhere to store our luggage at the train station so we can explore the city. Also, if anyone has any other suggestions we would greatly appreciate it. Also, if there is another fantastic place we should consider staying we are completely open to suggestions.

      My husband and I are planning to stay in Italy in may and will be at Lake como for a few days and in Parma for a few days - deciding whether it is feasible to see Verona, Firenze and Venice by day trips from either location(public transport) or to stay a night in each of the three cities mentioned and still stay at Lake Como and Parma but less nights

      Anything other than food and castles?

      by sandot Online Now Aug 20, 2007 at 1:30 PM

      Hi VT! Long time since I've been here. Since we resolved the Napoli question, I once again need your wisdom!

      I'm supposed to take up a post in Parma in a couple of weeks, but am really finding it hard to get a sense of what Parma is like. I've looked it up and read lots about the food and castles, but could you'se maybe suggest some adjectives to describe it? There, easy, all I need are one word answers!

      If anyone's been recently, or lives there, could you try to describe it to me.....sorry, I know this is the kind of abstract posting you'd be tempted to ignore, but spare a moment...please
      Thanks

    • Should I move to Bologna or Parma?

      by LiveItalia Online Now Jan 6, 2007 at 7:44 PM

      I single, 31 years old and living in London. I want to live for couple of years, maybe more, in Italy. I have chosen to move to Bologna or Parma because they are genuinely Italian, attractive, sophisticated, youthful and relatively tourist free. However, ultimately I tend to judge towns by atmosphere. I have two concerns relating to the atmosphere of Bologna and Parma respectively:

      1. I have always loved Bologna, however, on two recent trips I perceived the atmosphere of the city had changed slightly. It observed the centre as rather drugy and dirty in many quarters. I must admit my heart sank. Exciting things always happen to me in Bologna but maybe this is not the place to set-up a new life. Then again, maybe I am just being pathetic and seedy grit comes with culture, youth and vibrancy. I would really appreciate your opinions, especially if you either love it or hate it.

      2. Parma seems like a very similar town to Bologna in many ways. However, it clearly is smaller and consequently a little more parochial. Is Parma a little bit too sleepy? I really love towns to have a buzz? I know Parma also has a big University and that brings buzz to many towns. But I just can’t get an angle on how the town ticks. I would really appreciate your opinions especially, if you either love it or hate it.

      Many thanks for reading this and I look forward to your responses.

      by KoGGy Online Now Dec 14, 2003 at 8:00 AM

      Hi, during our holidays in Italy me and my parents loved the Italian Parmesan-cheese (not the plastic-packed one from the supermarket, but the huge pieces of a kilogram or so that they sell in small-corner-cheese-shops). Now I had the idea to import one of these pieces and give it to my parents as a christmas present. But where can I buy it without going to Italy? Does anyone know an eMail-adress of one of those small-corner-shops in Parma or somewhere else in Italy? regards KoGGy
