Discover how the King of all cheeses has been made in the same way since the benedectine monks invented it centuries ago: you'll first see the the hand making, then the salt pools and finally the "wheel cathedrals", real walls of cheese in a single room. Tasting at the end.
  • To follow: photo stop at the medieval village of Torrechiara dominated by its romantic castle: For sure the most spectacular amidst the Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza and Northern Italy, dating back to 1448 DC, built by Sir Pier Maria Rossi for his lover Bianca Pellegrini.
