  • Right behind the Duomo, it is a very beautiful church both outside and inside with beautiful frescoes. But watch out for the "very variable" opening as often in Italy!

  • This place has it all, great architecture, beautiful columns, looks great from the outside and even more beautiful once you are inside, located behind the Cathedral and for some reason was not crowded...  more »
  • The complex dates from the 10th century. The monastery of San Giovanni in Parma was founded in the year 981, that of s. Prospero in Reggio in 1057 and that of s. Pietro in Modena in the year 996, besides these three Benedictine monasteries there were many others whose lands and parish employees were dispersed throughout the country.

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.
