  • The Abbey of San Giovanni Evangelista is a Benedictine complex of the historical centre of Parma, and has a beautiful cupola frescoed by Correggio. The vast collection of buildings includes the Church, the monastery and the old pharmacy.

  • Very nice Church, rich in frescoes, of which the most beautiful is certainly the dome by Correggio, depicting Christ's Ascension. In the apsidal basin (or shell), there was another fresco by Correggio, with the coronation of the Virgin, which in the 16th century has gone almost completely destroyed and replaced with a copy created by cesare Aretusi. A fragment of the original fresco is preserved at the National Gallery of Parma.

  • Located at the centre of city and next to three more attraction my recommendation is spare 1 complete day and see this square.
  • We were fortunate to have found such a monk who invited us to visit the library of 1500 a place with lot of esoteric symbols to interpret

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.
