Langhirano Full review
avatarpicture andrewlincoln THE BEST REVIEW
Must See : We actually visited this restaurant back in May 2014 after visiting the nearby castle. The food and service were outstanding, to a point that it pretty much puts to shame any subsequent Italian dining. A great place indeed, highly recommended!

Castle of Torrechiara Full review
avatarpicture ethannorid THE BEST REVIEW
Wonderful Experience : Very nice Castle, very preserved. Most walls are still painted and some rooms contain explanations. Although we could not access the last floor and towers due to security reasons, views from other points of the castle were already stunning! Recommended.

Art and History: Teatro Farnese is a 16 century theater in the Baroque-style built by Giovanni Battista. It was destroyed in WW2, but has since been restored. It is a magnificent place to visit.

Palazzo della Pilotta Full review
avatarpicture maynardmakad THE BEST REVIEW
Worth A Visit : Don’t miss this place if you are visiting Parma. The entrance fee might seem a little pricy, but I think we’ll worth it. Fantastic is the restored wooden theater from the 17th century, which is just the preamble to the magnificent with collections ranging from 13th to 19th century. All pieces have been collected by the Estensi family through the centuries.

Old Spices Shop of St Giovanni Full review
avatarpicture lowellschuppe THE BEST REVIEW
Beautiful Place : We very very lucky to see the cloisters just before closing. There was not a single soul there... such a peaceful and serene sight.

Travel picture of Monastero di San Giovanni Evangelista
avatarpicture roxanekohl THE BEST REVIEW
Truly amazing: I think the original church was built over 1,000 years ago and some of its remains are still there. They kept reconstructing, modifying, and adding wings and it reached today's appearance in the 17th century. Inside artworks are truly remarkable. On the main square you could meet locals telling centuries old stories about churches in Parma. Fascinating.

Worth A Visit : A spectacular old opera house, so naturally it suffers some inefficiencies in handling crowds and slightly uncomfortable seating. Well worth putting up with - this house has a wonderful atmosphere and was a great place to see some Verdi. Recommended!

Brilliant : Beautiful structure and well restored: worthy of a visit, especially for the frescoes, some in excellent condition. Path to the visitor a bit 'labyrinthine (in addition safety routes / exits do not exist), lights and heating a go go, as if nn pay the bills: lucky them!
