First day


Discover the historic center of Parma accompanied by your authorized guide and in complete safety.
Parma is the small city you don’t expect, full of surprises and curiosities.

Our tour starts from the heart of the city: Piazza Garibaldi, crossed by the Via Emilia and surrounded by buildings of different styles and eras.
The walk continues through the streets of the center to Piazza Duomo, where you can admire two true masterpieces of the Middle Age: the magnificent Cathedral and the Antelamic Baptistery.
It takes just a few steps to jump back in time and reach the sixteenth century, when the Farnese family built the Palazzo della Pilotta, a mammoth service building that today houses museums and cultural institutions of great importance for Parma.

Our tour ends in front of the Teatro Regio, because the music here is still in the soul of the people today, and because the building was commissioned by Maria Luigia, Duchess beloved by the Parmesans.
In front of the Teatro Regio, the architecture of the Chiesa della Steccata stands out sinuously, a fabulous city temple that houses the remains of many of the Dukes of Parma and which was frescoed by talented local painters, the most famous of which, Parmigianino, left here the his latest masterpiece.
