  • I've been several times in Parma, but I hadn't yet visited the baptistery, this last time but I managed to see the inside of this beautiful building! The ticket is only together with that of the nearby Diocesan Museum, which is well worth a visit ...

  • I didn't expect all this beauty from Parma! For the visit to the baptistery you must pay a € 8 (€ 6 reduced) that allows you to visit both the baptistery the adjacent Museum. Extremely interesting and well attended both, I recommend it!

  • The baptistery is beautiful both outside with its typical structure located right next to the Duomo, which within the frescoed walls in every corner. Very nice glance!! To enter you pay a ticket costs 8 euro (perhaps a little expensive) however be combined at the entrance of the archiepiscopal Museum. In general it is well worth a visit if you are in Parma

  • Nice baptistery filled with historical paintings. Make sure you spend some time to look around because your ticket is only good for one entrance.
  • It isn't as impressive as other duomos we have seen but still worth to take a look if you are in the city.
  • The pink baptistery is quite unique! The entrance fee is a bit steep though
  • A Masterpiece! It has to be visited
  • Bombass Bapistery
