One of the stops on our honeymoon was in Parma, where we stayed at the wonderful Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati. Vittorio, the owner, treated us very nicely. He reserved us tickets to a Series A soccer match and tours of Parma's ham and cheese factories. We also recommend the Emilia Cremeria in Parma for wonderful gelato.
