The city of Parma is a great place to visit not only for those who love genuine food, but also for those who love art and culture, since the city has a strong historical tradition and has several buildings of important value.
Visiting Parma, from this point of view, is definitely an opportunity to take advantage of. Among the most interesting monuments of the city, at the top of the list is certainly the Duomo. Built in the 13th century, this is a very impressive construction, especially thanks to the porch, where the great carved Lions are positioned. Inside the Cathedral you will end up in front of paintings and frescos of priceless historical value. Note that the dome was frescoed in 1500 by Correggio, starting with ‘the assumption of the Virgin’.
In addition to the Duomo, the Baptistry is very important, also built in the 13th century and which is, like the duomo, of octagonal shape, and made of pink marble from Verona. Certainly a must-see in Parma, as well as many other monuments and places of interest: the Governor’s Palace, the Farnese theater, the Parco Ducale and Regio theater.
Parma, of course, is impossible to do without the tastes and flavours. The Parma ham, parmesan, salami Felino, the black truffle of Macedonian oak and fantastic wines make your stay more atmospheric and enjoyable in this beautiful place.
The city offers its visitors many opportunities for fun and a great holiday.Categories: Guides
