Did you know that Reggio-Emilia – together with Parma – is the cradle of Parmigiano-Reggiano, as well as one of the richest farming areas of Emilia Romagna? Go explore its authentic food corners and learn about the precious cultural heritage of the city where the Italian flag was first invented!
Your expert local guide will bring you around along the ancient roman road touching both cultural and gastronomic bases during a tasty Reggio Emilia food tour. Sala del Tricolore, for example, is a true Italian gem: sitting on wooden benches dating back to the 1800s you will discover that our national flag comes from here.
And what if we told you that the Romanic Cathedral of S. Maria Assunta hides an early Christian mosaic and a work by Guercino?
It will then be time for a tasty break in one of the pastry shops of the city center: no spoiler, here! The tour can only end with a tasting lunch at one of the historic delis of Reggio Emilia, with a nice mix of cured meats and cheeses, gnocco fritto and a glass of Lambrusco:cheers!
