Go to Sorogna, very near Parma, to visit the Museo del Parmigiano Reggiano. It is located in an 18th Century cheese factory on the grounds of an old castello. They showed a film on the traditional way of making cheese, and then gave us a tour of a modern process. It takes 600 liters of milk to make one big wheel of cheese!

Naturally, they have a sales shop to visit at the end of the tour

Open weekends, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., from March to early December.
Entry: 5 Euro

c/o Corte Castellazzi,
Via Volta, 5
Soragna (Northwest of Parma)
