You can eat well just about anywhere in Italy. But Italians know that Italy’s culinary heart lies in Emilia-Romagna. Lasagna, tortellini, premium balsamic vinegar from Modena, Parma ham, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, mortadella — all of these scrumptious items (and more) come from Emilia-Romagna.
That’s why epicures who want to get the most out of a visit to Italy may be interested in Tour de Forks’ Gastronomic Tour of Emilia-Romagna. This week-long tour travels around Bologna, Modena, Parma, and Ravenna, giving guests a chance to sample the best of the region.
