Parmagolf Experience – Golf Del Ducato La Rocca
Golf Del Ducato La Rocca was the venue for the Italian Women’s U18 Championship and will host the Italian International Senior Championships in 2021. Located 10 minutes from the city on the edge of the Boschi di Carrega Natural Park, it rises among oak and acacia woods, beautiful lakes and gently rolling terrain that gives life to the exceptional 18-hole park with unforgettable views.
The restaurant of the club is very famous for its traditional Emilian dishes and for the specialties of the territory, among which reign two world-class gastronomic achievements, such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma.
The city of Parma
First a fief of the Farnese family and then of the Bourbons, the city of Parma offers the exclusive charm that can only be found where history and culture have shaped the course of time. It is a UNESCO Creative City for Gastronomy, Italian City of Culture 2020 and 2021, famous worldwide for the quality of its cuisine and for being the capital of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza during the reign of Duchess Maria Luisa of Austria (wife of Napoleon Bonaparte). It is located in the center of the Food and Motor Valley, exactly halfway between Milan and Bologna.
Recommended visits include the Dallara Museum (the largest automobile company in the world for the construction of racing cars), a tour of the dairies and ham factories where the famous Parmigiano Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma are produced, and countless churches and monuments that have marked the history of the city.

The spa town of Salsomaggiore Terme
One of the most important spas in Italy, Salsomaggiore is famous for its Termal waters, whose healing properties were discovered only in 1839 by the doctor Lorenzo Berzieri. The salinity of the water (150 g / l) is about four times the current sea water.
The city is located among the hills of the Parmesan Apennines. Salsomaggiore is also known for the numerous works of the painter and Art Nouveau decorator Galileo Chini, who decorated the Terme Berzieri and the halls of the Palazzo dei Congressi. Famous is the beauty contest Miss Italia, of which Salsomaggiore hosted the final of 39th editions.
Among other things, we recommend a visit to the many castles in the area as well as the spectacular winery il Poggio, where you can also buy zero-kilometer products, the botanical garden Gavinell and, a few kilometers away, a magical shopping experience in Fidenza Village.
