Parma International Airport, which is also known as Giuseppe Verdi Airport, is located in the city of Parma in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy.The airport offers domestic as well as international flights to destinations such as Cagliari and London.
The city is best known for food in its namesake. Parmigiano-Reggiano, or Parmesan cheese, is produced in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Bologna and Montova. Only cheese that is produced in the said regions can be labelled as Parmigiano-Reggiano under European law while Parmesan is a generic term used to name cheese that copies the qualities of the original.
Another food that is also associated with Parma is the Prosciutto, a dry-cured ham that is served uncooked and thinly sliced. It is made by ageing the hind leg of (most commonly) a pig or a wild boar from nine months to two years, depending on the meat’s size.
Castles, palaces and museums are a testimony to Parma’s rich history and culture. The second largest fortress in Italy, the Bardi Fortress, or Fortezza Di Bardi, is a historical gem that you must visit. The castle offers guided tours for guests to fully grasp and take in its magnificence while learning about it. The Teatro Farnese inspires with its Baroque-styled architecture and proscenium that is said to be a first in its kind.
