Hello all I'm new to this board but definitely use Chowhound for restaurant recommendations. My wife and I are traveling to Italy and we'll be spending some time in Parma. I've read good things about the gourmet tours through Parma Golosa. My problem is transportation. We were originally going to travel by train with our final destination being Florence. Now I'm thinking about renting a car. Are there any travelers that feel one way or the other (car vs train). Thanks!
