Your tour to discover Parma will start from the Pilotta, this imposing historical building characterizes the city with its presence and holds its history. Your first stop will be the National Gallery, where you will be able to admire works of art from famous artists such as Correggio, Canaletto, Parmigianino and even Leonardo Da Vinci. You will then enter the San Paolo Chamber, painted by Correggio and still considered one of the masterpieces of Italian Renaissance.

You will end the morning in the Teatro Farnese, that was rebuilt after World War II and has one of the today most beautiful theatrical architectures. From here you will proceed towards a typical trattoria that will delight you with a lunch full of local products.

 

Then, a brief walk through the main streets will take you to the monumental square that hosts the Duomo and the Battistero, religious buildings of rare beauty.

Parma’s Duomo, "Cathedral" for the parmesans, is a splendid example of Romanesque Po Valley architecture; externally it is simple and rigorous, but the real magic is hidden in the inside.

The golden stuccos are just the prelude to the charm of the splendid dome frescoed by Correggio and of the many artistic testimonies that will transport you, as if by magic, in distant eras.

You will then proceed towards the nearby baptistery which, thanks to the white and pink marbles, reflects the light in a very particular way.

Lastly you will enjoy a relaxing walk through the city centre streets, past antique shops and evocative views to photograph.
