The area was tucked away and not on the main thorofare. It was easy to find and all the buildings in the area contributed to the spectacular setting. Worthwhile stop for sure.

The Parma Duomo is breathtaking. The frescos, paintings, little chapels were very beautiful and worthy to visit. We were there on Sunday night and could attend the mass on the underground, the crypt of the church. We could spend a day there and still some details we would miss. We have to do some research before visiting the Duomo to... More

The Parma Cathedral (Duomo) is a beautiful place definitely worth a visit. It is located in the heart of Parma. Right next to it is also a Baptistery, which you should not miss either. I truly recommend a visit to both buildings to couples, families and groups.

We were driving from Florence to the Lake Como area when we decided to check out the town of Parma, origin of Parmesan cheese! Not only did we have a declicious pasta lunch near the main Cathedral square (with plenty of Parmesan cheese of course), but we decided to visit the Cathedral and it was quite the pleasant surprise! Although... More

We have visited many churches and cathedrals on our travels around Italy but this has to be one of the best. The walls are covered in frescoes and the Dome is just beautiful. It is an amazing experience whether you are reigious or not.

We arrived in Parma during the end of May 2015. We were exploring the historic area with our travel director and she mentioned that she was going to visit this Duomo which she tries to do every time that she was in Parma. We decided to tag along and are we glad that we did. Upon arrival we observed the... More

You need to tour this Basilica. You will be overwhelmed when you enter the church by the sheer magnitude of the church and its paintings. The arched ceilings are so finely painted and what makes this so different from the other churches we visited were the frescos alining the upper side walls around the inside of the church surrounding the...

This is a beautiful church. It is on par with any of the churches in Italy. It is huge, with little rooms all over. The organ pipes on the left hand side of the church are unreal. You can even go to confession as you visit.
