  • Ares have visited the Cathedral, don't forget to go to the Baptistery. Architecture and frescoes are very different from those of the duomo, but just as remarkable and attractive.

  • It isn't as impressive as other duomos we have seen but still worth to take a look if you are in the city.
  • A Masterpiece! It has to be visited
  • The pink baptistery is quite unique! The entrance fee is a bit steep though
  • Bombass Bapistery
  • The unique octagonal architecture and pink marble facades make this building a precious Pearl of the already impressive artistic heritage that only Italy can boast. A must for those visiting Parma for the first time. Adjacent to the Cathedral and very close to the Pilotta, can be reached on foot, passing through Piazza della Pace. For hungry tourists: walking distance to restaurants and shops more listed on TripAdvisor.
