Half day guided tour in Parma
A very elegant and refined town of Art: PARMA.
A tour passing from the Romans to middle age, delightful Romanesque Design, the richness of Renaissance and of the era of Farnese and Bourbon Family , talking about the beloved Maria Luigia D'Austria. History, Art and amazing food!
The tour starts with Palazzo della Pilotta, built in the 16th century, as a court service building annexed to the Ducal Palace. Entering in the Farnese theatre, a stunning wooden theatre where the first-ever revolving stages were installed, you will get amazed !
Piazza Duomo, one of the most beautiful and impressive in Italy : the cathedral, the Bishop's Palace, and the gorgeous Baptistery that dates back to the 12th Century. A visit inside in the Baptistery is a must! But not only! We can also visit the inside of the Cathedral and of the Church of St John for admiring Correggio and Parmigianino masterpieces.

We met for the last time with Cinzia F, this time in Parma. As before she surprised us with some many "wow" moments in sites in art & history of Parma that we were so amazed. She again demonstrated her ability to convey information in a most entertaining & enlighting way. We were pleasantly surprise about the importance Parma has had to date what it has to offer.
