One shouldn't miss this Cattedrale either. It serves as a nice architectural and spiritual complement to the Battistero.

Most cathedrals we've visited were noted for their sculpture and windows, this place has the most amazing frescoes I've seen almost anywhere outside of the Sistine Chapel. Just about every square foot of wall is decorated with stories taken from the Bible, lives of saints or other liturgical subjects, and they are glorious.

Four of us visited Il Duomo di Parma and were stunned by the cathedral. The frescos were magnificent. The sanctuary and specialty chapels were also captivating. This is a must see if you ae anywhere near Parma.

This has to be seen to be believed. It is a fre entry which is great and whilst it asks of course for quiet and respect, the helpers stood around were fine with photos being taken. The frescos are amazing and there is a respectful air.

The cathedral and baptistery rivals more famous ones we visited in Italy. The cathedral is free but there is a small fee for the Bapistry and the museum. When you buy that ticket you get a audio guide which was a bit overwhelming but if you pick and choose, well worth it.

This duomo is free to enter. It is very large with numerous side alters. It is well worth walking around.

Visited with friends while on a bike trip. One is passionate about Italian art and churches. He counted this among his top five in all of Italy. Good coffee shop (TCafe) around the corner.
