A walk through history, art and music


One of Italy's great art city where admirers cite her splendid churches and elegant lanes, her artworks and antiquities, the lyrical strains of the opera that waft from her Teatro Regio. No towns its size in Italy is more devoted to music and theatre which started its tradition in Farnese Theater.

Parma is also the Italian city most influenced by French culture thanks to the rule of Napoleon's forsaken Empress, Marie Louise and you might even notice elegance, prosperity and fine quality of life.
In Piazza Duomo, the heart of the city, while the Cathedral is worthy of note for different masterpieces, the octagonal Baptistry is one of the jewels of Italian Romanesque.
Last but not least, Emilia-Romagna food standards are fully well-respected in a triumph of local-style first-courses, not-to-be-missed cold cuts, and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
And if I tickled your palate, it will be my pleasure to suggest to you the best food places where finally you raise your glass with a DOC Colli di Parma local wine.
