Hidden treasures in the Ceno Valley

About 60 kms from Parma, in the upper Ceno Valley, near the confluence of the homonymous river and the Noveglia creek, you will discover an untouched setting, where you will visit a special dairy f actory and an impressive castle

You will meet your local, licensed and private tour guide in Parma. Transfer to Bardi by private car/minivan. Visit to an organic factory that pursues the dairy processing with craft made methods supported by modern technologies. A milk pipeline connects the milking parlor to the dairy factory itself, thus allowing a complete production chain from milk cow breeding to the whole cheese and seasoning of Parmigiano Reggiano.

At the end, you will taste some products. Then visit to the stronghold, dating back to X century but which was then rebuilt between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance thanks to the Landi Dynasty from Piacenza that transformed it into a refined residence between XVI and XVII centuries. The castle is famous for the legendary ghost of the knight Moroello, for its long rounds bays as well as its striking rooms, such as its kitchens and torture rooms. Lunch at a local restaurant based on typical dishes. Back to Parma by privare car/minivan.
