DAY 1: PARMA
Discover the historic centre of Parma in complete safety accompanied by your authorized guide.
Parma is the small city you don't expect, full of surprises and curiosities.
Our tour starts from the heart of the city: Piazza Garibaldi, crossed by the Via Emilia and surrounded by buildings of different styles and eras.
The walk continues through the streets of the centre to Piazza Duomo, where you will admire two true masterpieces of the Parma period: the magnificent Cathedral and the Antelamic Baptistery.
It takes just a few steps to jump back in time and reach the sixteenth century, when the Farnese family built the Palazzo della Pilotta, a mammoth service building that today houses museums and cultural institutions of great importance for Parma.
Our tour ends in front of the Teatro Regio, because the music is still in the soul of the people today, and because the building was commissioned by Maria Luigia, Duchess beloved by the Parmesans.
In front of the Teatro Regio, the architecture of the Church of Steccata stands out sinuously, a fabulous city temple which houses the remains of many of the Dukes of Parma and which was frescoed by talented local painters, the most famous of which, Parmigianino, left here his latest masterpiece
