This place is pretty amazing. This was one of the attractions I did not want to miss when we visited Parma. Came here after a tour of Parma ham, cheese and balsamic producers.

I was impressed by the wooden structure! You feel yourself like the artists performing in this beautiful theatre and it is really close to all the other things you want to visit in the city

If you only visit one place in Parme, then it must be the theatre. The theatre is an absolute work of art and totally breathtaking and will leave you dreaming of seeing a performance there

Not to be missed if you are in Parma! A beautiful old wooden theatre that was renovated after it was almost completely destroyed during WW2.
