  • Suitable to be visited on a cold and foggy day in December. It's not huge but the various halls contain interesting exhibits. I loved the Egyptian artefacts and those Romans

  • Interesting especially for the Farnese Theatre not to be missed. The rooms are interesting but nothing special. Shameful (cultural heritage Ministry's fault!) lack of staff that prevents you from opening all the salt.

  • Located in the Palazzo della Pilotta, the Museum, founded in the second half of 1700, exposes interesting Egyptian artefacts such as sarcophagus, Canopic jars, scarabs, amulets and funerary Papyri. There are also sculptures of Roman, Greek and Etruscan ceramics, bronzes and Etruscan mirrors, URNs as well as italic. Particular the twelve marble statues of the imperial family: beautiful two bronze portraits and Trajan's surprising Tabula Alimentaria. A bronze table: the biggest inscription from Roman times. The part dedicated to the archeology of Parma covers the period from prehistory to the middle ages. Paleolithic artefacts are ceramic and bronze funerary artefacts, Etruscan and Fraore's grave. There are mosaics, statues, jewellery and coins of Roman and Longobard period. Armed with curiosity and patience: deserves to pay it a visit.

  • Unbelievable architecture with an amazing collection of national treasures within. The art gallery is a must see. Not as busy as so many other galleries across Italy, but very well displayed and many impressive pieces are exhibited here.
  • A massive block of bricks in the centre of Parma. A big renaissance architecture that hosts a lot of exhibitions and museums
  • The absolute squalor: plenty of black slackers stationed there, just in front of the Pilotta, indulging their bodily functions ("answering the call of nature", urinate and defecate) when it is necessary. An open air toilet! The smell is very strong, but sure less strong than the italian shame for such a sad spectacle of degradation!
  • Nice place to relax or have a picnic and observe your surroundings.
  • Go to visit the art museum and also the historical museum. You can see a real palace of 1500
