Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • A beautiful park in the city center. The Park borders the Doge's Palace which is a beautiful attraction for tourist as well as the seat of the Provincial Command of the Carabinieri. In the park there is a beautiful pond with ducks. Obviously being a park can sometimes see some thug.

  • Splendid park, awesome for relaxing in the green or going for a jog.
  • One of the best places in Parma
  • Wonderful park. A seat near the lake inside is as serene as it gets
  • Like a green oasis in the city. Especially in the autumn it's a great peaceful place and perfect for a walk after you've finished sightseeing.
