When I started planning these surprise birthday trips to Italy, I immediately knew Genova would be high on the list. It’s one of those cities that are both rich in culture and history as well as food and scenery. It’s where the Italians come to vacay and international tourists to eat.
Our visit to Bologna ended with a visit to the largest food park… in the world – FICO.
Well, the best way to know the details is to visit a parmigiano factory. And the Emilia-Romagna is full of them. Especially the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, the part of Bologna west of Reno, and Modena (all in Emilia-Romagna) as well as the part of Mantua in Lombardy that lies south of the river Po.
