What people are saying about Parma

Small but very nice museum about the process of the pasta and its many varieties. Nice to see what those molds look like for those different types of pasta. You can also enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant.

Small but very particular and detailed museum. Also valid is the sale of Parmesan cheese made by their dairy as there are forms aged up to 55 months.

Excellent tasting to spend a different Sunday lunch than usual
