  • Mostly collections from excavation of this region with a small collection. Of Egyptian artifact. Most exhibits come only with Italian description but worth a visit  more »
  • Were some years that we missed visiting it and we are visiting Parma, a refresher there was. This museum was founded in 1760 to coincide with the start of exploration of the Roman town of Veleia and was then increased over the years not only with the finds in the Parma area but with different collections that include valuable Egyptian artefacts and sculptures of Roman, italic and Etruscan and Greek ceramics, marble statues of the imperial family. Very interesting and I would highly recommend this tour for families with school-age children.

  • A small exhibition overall della Pilotta, quick to visit but with nice surprises. It's worth it. Unexpected the sarcophagi and the Egyptian Mummy.

  • 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
