    What to Expect
    If you're visiting Bologna and are passionate about authentic Italian food and wine culture, then this is an experience you can't miss. You must have heard about (and tasted) the famous Parma Ham before, but here is an opportunity to know where it, how it got the DOP (in English, PDO: protected designation of origin) label for its unique taste and production techniques and, most importantly, tast the real and authentic version of this amazing 'prosciutto crudo'.

    Get on-board this tour and you'll discover all the secrets of this amazing product, which you will of course taste together with other typical products and a glass of a delicious local wine.

    Before the tasting, you'll enjoy a guided tour of the "MUSA". the Charcuterie Museum. Three floors entirely dedicated to one of the arts that has indelibly marked the gastronomic culture of Italy, where you will learn about the flavors and skills that have always filled our tables, interspersed with images, videos, and descriptive texts with stories and anecdotes of individual products. There's also an exhibition of antique machinery and other historical artefacts used for processing, and the raw materials such as spices and flavorings used during processing.
