Food Valley Travel & Leisure

Incoming Tour Operator & DMC

Food Valley Travel & Leisure is a premier Tour Operator and Destination Management Company founded in Parma in 2003 with the aim of designing, promoting, selling and organizing incoming travel and business activities in Emilia-Romagna, i.e. the renowned Food Valley of Italy…and this above is just a cold academic description!
Indeed, we’ve always been looking at ourselves more like enthusiast region specialists, land ambassadors, sort of private caterers and happy travel artisans than mere tour sellers: we have grown up here – not too long ago, com’on!
– and we’re all natural-born scouts even in our everyday life when it comes to choosing a place for a celebration meal, a cosy hotel for a special weekend out or just something nice to do nearby!
Ever heard of Parmigiano-Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma, Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, Culatello di Zibello, tortelli, tortellini, tortelloni, black and white truffles, extra virgin olive oil, Lambrusco, the incredible wines of the Bologna and the Piacenza hills, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Pagani and Ducati, just to give you a brainstorming with mouth-watering names? And what if we tell you that we boast more than 30 charming castles scattered in the radius of 80 km, some of which provided with luxury accommodation and even meeting rooms for MICE events? In a sentence: we are so proud of where we live that we would like our customers to try our very same lifestyle besides the iconic and extraordinary places and activities they may have put in the wishlist for their dream trip to Italy. Travelling is far more than just visiting popular destinations: instead, we feel it as a mission to let you breath the most authentic essence of a place and provide you with an insider’s perspective on the gastronomic delights, traditions and cultural diversities of Parma, Emilia Romagna and Italy through authentic and luxury bespoke experiences.
It’s not always easy – the market demand has been changing rapidly in post Covid times and the new travelers have their own tight schedules and last minute afterthoughts, now – but most of times possible: don’t forget we’re Emilian artisans, used at working for quality products on a tailor-made basis! Emilia-Romagna is our base but don’t hesitate to ask us also for the surrounding Regions and the rest of Italy as well. Last but not least: our MICE department is capable of organizing from the simplest event to the craziest one! Vintage cars, supercars, cooking experiences, orienteering, treasure hunts and much more are our workhorse!
