Parco Ducale, Parma
(4.1/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • In sunny days ideal for walks or even to relax on a sunny bench. Well kept and clean. Beautiful in the fall.

  • I felt like I was in a little Paris! A green heart in the middle of town. People running. bicycling ... Beautiful corner of a wonderful city like Parma.

  • Beautiful garden near the historical centre of Parma, perfect for a stroll during a beautiful day, to search for a place of peace by confusion, perhaps with a good book sitting on one of the many benches. Fascinating perspective on Central promenade with focal point the pond at the end of the gardens. Small but precious and discreetly maintained! @gargio76

  • 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.
