After a wonderful morning walk around the city of Genoa to view the 1900’s architecture we are on the road to Parma and this is only with 3 wrong turns. After travelling through tunnels to cross the mountain range we have now reached the long straight roads with large flat farm land all round. We can see many very large farm house with large barns for the storage of the cows (still no animals out in the paddocks). Parma is the home of Parmesan Cheese, Parma Ham and Lambrusco wine, three of our favourite food groups. This is a University town but seemed very quiet for a University campus. While walking around the town this afternoon came across a Food and Beer festival so we did some sampling. For dinner tonight we had a bottle of the local wine Lambrusco which went down well with our wonderful meal. Tomorrow morning, we are off to an artisan Parmigiano Reggiano cheese factory before heading to Venice for a couple of days.
