Very disappointing in light of the Batistero next door. Nothing special compared to many other cathedrals in Italy.

The visit to the catedral was a real surprise. I've visited lots of churches all over the Europe, but this one impressed me with the enormous surface of wall-paintings. Most of them are made by Parmegianino, but there are also some original ones from the12-13 century.

The whole duomo is a work of art and must be seen. Especially as it is free entry. Remember though that the cathedral shuts at 12.30.

The inside opens up to some beautifully decorated chapels and decor. One can get church overdose in Italy, but this is worth the stop.

This is a beautiful Duomo. The out side is average, Italy wise, but the inside is magnificent. A must see.

This is a must see if you are traveling to Parma. It is located in the heart of the Old City, and it is fascinating given that it was erected in the 11th century and it is in pristine condition for its age.

Organ music playing, fantastic frescoes, and paintings and artwork. Need to be there before 12.30 or after 3 pm and allow at east 30 mins to view properly.

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
