MY TRIP TO ITALY - PART I

It’s been almost a month since I am back from vacation to Italy, France and Spain.  I am going to share few of my exploration in those places through my upcoming posts for few weeks.  In these posts you will be seeing beautiful Italian streets, historical buildings and off-course food.  Here are few samples from the wonderful Place in Northern Italy a city known for its art, music and gastronomy....

The first place we landed in Italy was Parma. 

Parma is a city in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna famous for its prosciutto, cheese, architecture and surrounding countryside. This is the home of the University of Parma, one of the oldest universities in the world.  Parma is a city which is true to its culture and heritage and it does not have western influence.  English is not a dominant language in Parma.  If you really want to see, feel and breathe Italy this is one of the place to go.




Parma, one of Italy's top gastronomic cities is famous for its delicious cheese (Parmigiano Reggiano), mouthwatering ham (prosciutto di Parma) and is also known for its delicate stuffed handmade pastas (tortellini, cappelletti and anolini) and outdoor markets.  The local sparkling red wine is called Lambrusco; great on its own and perfect with many of the local cuisine. 

Parma is a magnificent place to eat.   Even a small pizzeria serves top notch quality Pizza and Pasta.  Writing of Icecream here makes me scream for eating Italian Icecream.  Every street, nook and corner has gelateria and Cremeria.  The unique icecream flavors are mind blowing.  I ended up eating icecream everyday.  Parma gives the unique experience and opportunity to treat your taste buds, by teaching how to try genuine Italian food.   

Parma also has two food multinationals, Barilla and Parmalat.....Stay tunned
