Immerse yourself in the age-old traditions of Parma ham production on a guided tour and tasting at a ham farm.

    The duration of the tour should be 2 hours, including arrival and departure, but over 3 1/2 hours. Which is fine too. But you should also specify it in such a way that the time of arrival and departure is added. If you had planned something else later, it would have been very difficult to implement it.
