Province of Parma, Emilia‑Romagna

The territory of the province of Parma can be divided into 3 different areas: the plain in the north, bordering the Po river; the hills in the center, and the Appennine mountains in the south. The area is known as the "food valley", for its world-famous gourmet traditions, being the homeland of renowned pork products as the prosciutto of Parma and parmesan cheese, and the seat of important Italian food-processing industries, as Barilla and Parmalat. But a great history welcomes the tourist as well, with magnificent castles and art cities.
