Just outside of Modena is a cheese factory (Caseificio) that offers a very good tour and tasting, in English as well as Italian. It is called 4 Madonne Caseificio dell'Emilia. https://www.caseificio4madonne.it/
When we visited the area we stayed in Parma, which we liked very much.
Thank you, that’s looks like something we would enjoy. As we continue to do our homework we’re finding lots of quick jaunts to nearby places, many that don’t necessarily require a whole day. I hope we can get to them all, one at a time. I am so excited, it’s been two long years on a pause and we’re more than ready to go.
