  • Location important: a stone's throw from the Camera di San Paolo (must see) this museum is pretty original. Suitable for children but also for adults. Tells the story of puppets and marionettes of Parma and beyond. It tells of an Italian tradition and an art form that is disappearing. Great idea then. Such a thing have found long ago in Palermo: a Sicilian puppet Museum. Thanks, therefore, to keep our culture, in all its forms.

  • Pleasant interlude for fans of the genre. Nothing earth-shattering but recommended to watch in the afternoon with the spectacle that adds charm to the experience.

  • In the garden of Saint Paul, an exhibition that is a journey into the memory of childhood, through an art considered wrongly "minor", that is, the puppet theatre, which the Ferrari family is a prominent. More than 1500 between puppets and marionettes especially from Italy, but also some fine pieces from Europe and the rest of the world (and even One, Five, and Ambrose Mediaset years ' 80) in display cabinets well-organized. Access is free and the Sunday afternoon show reserved for children with 50 seats. Emotion sensitive hearts no longer very young!

  • A very cute, small, but perfect for listening to the tales of the puppets. The collection is certainly impressive.

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.
