Friends recommended that we should visit the little wooden theatre and we weren't disappointed. It is a unique experience, the history of its construction, destruction and rebuild is fascinating. The entrance fee is €2 per person, we didn't pay to visit the National Gallery which is accessible through the theatre, not sure of the ticket cost as we didn't have... More

It's very sad to think of the destruction this place suffered due to the war. It's a beautiful theatre, and definitely a must-see if you're in Parma. Not too expensive, and you can easily spend an hour or two marvelling at everything you see.

This is the most unique theatre I have ever seen. The raw timber is extraordinary. The stories of how this was used originally are fascinating. Do not leave Parma without seeing this.

This theatre is absolutely unique with its whole structure made out of wood. You have to try the virtual reality demo. You would feel as if you were taken back to the real performance during the era. One day of a kind experience!

We attended the Verdi Opera Festival at night. The Teatro Farnese was where the concert was held. In a wooden Baroque style theater built in 1618, we heard Giovanni Bellucci on piano and the voice of Giancarlo Giannini reciting a tribute to Shakespeare. My husband didn't really know what I had bought tickets for, when we entered he was elbowing... More

Although we only had a very short amount of time, we are so glad we decided to spend the €3 each for entry to the Teatro. It is a stunning indoor space, and has a great story behind it.

The teatro farnese in Parma, Italy is an impressive theatre from hundreds of years ago. It was ruined during the world war, but restored. It really gives a good impression on how theatre was done in this country hundreds of years ago. No wonder at that time the city must have been very prosporous. They still use the theatre to...

The theatre dates back several centuries and is constructed entirely of wood which is quite amazing in its own right. Because of the risk of fire it cannot be used now for the purpose intended but it serves as an exhibition piece and must rate as one of the best of its type worldwide.
