Parco Ducale, Parma

(4.1/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Parco Ducale, open to the public, contains 3.2 km (2 mi) of tree-lined avenues. Ottavio Farnese gave the mandate in 1561 to architect Giovanni Boscoli to begin construction on a family residence. Subsequent rulers expanded the green space and gave the people of the city access. Joggers often exercise here. Bring picnic food and a blanket to relax in the shade. Services such as toilets or restaurants may not be available.

  • Very nice as a park, if you find a seat on the benches you are lucky, often full of layabouts. Having said that in summer there is a very nice kiosk where enjoy one of the best granite of Parma, with taste extremely early ' 80.

  • The most beautiful park of Parma, with nice pond, a nice kiosk, bicycle rides, children's corner as it once was. Unfortunately some "guy" turns too undisturbed. Rosehill some more testing by law enforcement

  • Went on a dreary fall day but it was still a wonderful park to stroll through.
  • Nice area. Quiet and a nice stroll
  • It's cool and shiny, a lot of grass when you can rest in shadow.
  • Could use some gardening. Relaxed park with not too much tourists.
  • Splendid park, awesome for relaxing in the green or going for a jog.
