  • Indulge your inner food nerd with a journey into the history of one of Italy's culinary cornerstones: the humble tomato
  • From the colonial history of tomatoes arriving in Europe to the role they play in Italy's most iconic dishes, you'll learn more than you knew there was to learn about tomatoes!
  • Opt for a tasting, and wrap your taste buds around some fresh delicious tomatoes prepared in a number of different ways

Tomatoes might have only arrived in Europe in the 16th century, but the ruby-red fruit has found its true home in the culinary traditions of Italy, and Parma's Tomato Museum is here to prove it.

This fascinating food museum pays homage to the history and cultural significance of the humble tomato, with seven richly detailed exhibition sections devoted to the story of how tomatoes conquered the taste buds and kitchens of Italy.

Every foodie worth their salt should check this little gem out!
