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.

  • It's a nice church, not far from the city cathedral. Its wall decorations not as outlandish as those of the cathedral yet its apse has good frescoes.  more »
  • Good place to feel monastery life in Parma since the Charterhouse from Stendhal's novel is closed. It has a small pharmacy.  more »
  • the Church is interesting, but the visit to the incredible frescoed dome by Correggio, more beautiful than that of the Duomo, in my opinion

  • We visited the cloisters, and the ones of the Monastero di San Giovanni Evangelista are wonderful. Unfortunately you can't see all of them, but those that are free for the public are really nice. There's no entrance fee, but you can donate something before or after entering the cloisters.
  • Spectacular!
  • Dark and solemn as a church of the monastery should be, is a remarkable artistic monument. Splendid frescoes are a bit hard to see: there is little light inside. The monks are certainly strange people, like all religious: it is always interesting to see how most of the Italian artistic heritage is in the hands of a bunch of old sclerotic generally weird. Have a guesthouse that works well and, although simple, is welcoming. The library is something spectacular glorious frescoes. Obviously it would be ideal to host cultural events, but actually it works out that there are those who can and who cannot-black and white hens in a Parma infested with living rooms and people.

  • Benedictine Abbey in the Centre, behind the Duomo. Recommend a visit not only the Church but also to the monastery for both the evocative cloisters both for the extraordinary library.
