Italy’s capital of culture
A title that Parma more than lives up to!
The old town of Parma is dominated by over a dozen churches. Magnificent works of architecture, including the Pisa Cathedral, the Baptistery of Saint John and the Basilica of San Vitale. Further highlights include the Teatro Regio opera house, the birthplace of Arturo Toscanini and the tradition-steeped University of Parma which was established in 1117. Apart from all these treasures of art and architecture, unique natural landscapes, including numerous natural lakes and national parks, await you in the province of Parma.
