Wonderful Italian cheese and ham
Parma is one of the cities in Italy with the best standard of living - and the highest levels of cuisine. Parma is surrounded by verdant green hills, themselves dotted with castles, and the River Parma runs across the city. The Parma region produces two of the most celebrated food products in the world - tasty Parmesan cheese and 'sweet' Parma ham, as well as culatello and Felino salami.
A rich city, the capital of Italy's food industry, Parma is also an important artistic and cultural centre. The city, capital of the Duchy of Parma for centuries, features a series of splendid artworks and buildings, including the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Monastery of San Giovanni Evangelista, the Pilotta Palace, the 17th-century Teatro Farnese and the famous Regio Theatre.
