Routes and guided tours in Parma

Not just ham, not just Parmesan cheese. But also Correggio, Parmigianino, the Farnese, Maria Luigia. And again, the Duomo, the Baptistery, the Regio Theater ... Parma welcomes you with its excellence in its streets, in the lanes of typical houses side by side, in its sunny squares. A petite capital to live in sumptuous palaces, in the shopping streets, in that ducal legacy that permeates the Parmesan style, between fashion mood and tradition. While preserving the signs of a twentieth-century history, Parma is dressed in a nineteenth-century dress from the typical yellow ocher (Yellow Parma!) That colors the downtown buildings, with bridges elegantly lined up over the creek, a hinge that divides the heart from the city more traditional district "Oltretorrente", a ward that today also has a multiethnic and university face. But Parma is also production, industry, development and promotion of art. It can not be summarized in a few lines: visit it!

Each route is customizable by the customer's needs. Visits to churches, museums and exhibitions are only allowed on days and opening times, so it is not always possible to guarantee the integrity of the proposal.
