This Cathedral is a must in Parma, really nice outside and inside. A lot of light comming throug the ceiling that makes more impressive your visit.
The Cattedrale di Parma is a lovely place, but my husband and I have seem countless cathedrals in countless towns over the years and very few remain in memory over time. In a way, they are all the same, like castles. There are a few that stand out, but most fall into the category of "just another cathedral", beautiful in... More
A lovely atmospheric cathedral, witnessed some real Gregorian chanting too. The Baptistry and Archdiocesan Museum have an entrance fee ... that is worth paying, the Baptistry for the painting and the Museum for the history of Parma with many artefacts from pre-Roman, Roman time and the medieval period. A combination of sights not heavily hyped, but that is Parma, not... More
Excellent iconic place in Parma, worth visiting. Large square in front and the Baptistry area just in the side. We were lucky to see a real Baptism of several children, then the family goes to nearby restaurants for a party. Restaurants, shopping, hotels are nearby.
This 11th century cathedral is one of the finest we have visited. Check out the cupola decorated with the 16th century fresco "The Assumption" by Correggio. There are many other art works by this great painter. Also, there is a delightful little chapel in the crypt that you should not miss.
Stopped in to see the cathedral for the first time after a few visits to Parma. Very impressive with many alcoves filled with paintings. Wanted to see the Baptistry but was put-off by a 6Euro entrance fee. Very dark so it is hard to see the details.
Like many of the Duomos in Italy, this cathedral is beautiful to behold, certainly on the inside. Unfortunately, the bell tower was struck by lightning three years ago and is still under scaffolding for repair. Nonetheless, the cathedral has a stunning interior with beautiful frescoes, especially in the dome. Worth spending a little while here.
It is one of the few things in Parma that actually make your visit in Parma worth your while. It is beautiful, impressive and charming. The entrance is free and the visit a must in Parma
There are many interesting things to admire, and for E1 you can pay to have 3 frescoes illuminated, including the dome which is really worthwhile. Impressive. And, unlike the battistero next door, it's free!
I had seen the duomo on TV and knew I had to visit to see the amazing fresco in the dome. Parma Cathedral was probably my favourite of all the churches/cathedrals I've been in. Peaceful, since Parma isn't a huge tourist place and beautifully decorated. Totally worth popping into if you're in the area.
