Where to stay in Parma

Virtually all of the old town center's tourist sites are within easy walking distance of each other, so can explore them by staying either at a hotel in the area or a less expensive inn in one of the nearby residential neighborhoods. Staying close to the town center allows you quick access to the finest shops, restaurants, museums, and galleries. If urban attractions aren't your priority and you have a limited budget, consider staying at a working farm just outside the city.

  • In church are tombs of 26 members of Farnese family, which were Dukes of Parma. It has a baroque altar and a beautiful fresco of the Coronation of the Virgin with Saints.

  • Wonderful! The interior is absolutely fantastic
  • It sucks
  • Worth a visit both artistic and devotional. The Basilica is in a central location, and at the same time is just from the train station. There are important frescoes by Parmigianino and is the seat of the Constantinian order of Saint George.
