Bologna Food Experience: Factory Visits with Gourmet Lunch and Wine Tasting
From US$197.57
Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region is a food lover’s dream, and this full-day tour from Bologna shows you how the area produces its specialties, including Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, Modena balsamic vinegar, and prosciutto. Of course, you’ll also enjoy some delicious tastings, as well as breakfast and lunch with wine pairings. For this immersive experience, you’ll travel hassle-free in a comfy minivan with various pickup options including your hotel.
What to Expect
After hotel, station, or airport pickup in Bologna, visit a factory that makes Emilia-Romagna’s unique Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Enjoy the rare opportunity to see the entire process, from the early-morning milk delivery and work of master cheesemakers to the storage and aging.

Savor a breakfast with cheese tastings and Lambrusco wine, and perhaps purchase some cheese at below retail price.

Next, visit a family-run business producing Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena D.O.P. See the age-old techniques and enjoy a full tasting, comparing a 6-year-old balsamic with 12- and 25-year-old varieties.

Continue to a prosciutto producer to see how this regional delicacy is made, and sample fresh slices of prosciutto di Modena D.O.P with Lambrusco wine.

Finally, enjoy a gourmet lunch with wine at a countryside trattoria or organic winery before drop-off at the departure point.

Over the Top - worth every penny

You get to see every step of cheese, prosciutto and vinegar production with awesome behind the scenes access. More food and wine on this tour than you can imagine. Calling the final meal a lunch is like calling thanksgiving dinner a snack.
