Wonderful wooden, historic theatre restored after war damage. I liked the atomosphere and architecture of this impressive auditorium.

Despite a somewhat dilapidated building the Teatro Farnese is a stand out from another era. Just a few minutes needed to take in its grandeur but a visit is well worth it

We visited Parma for a day adventure and was dissapointed to find the Teatro Farnese was closed for most of the afternoon. We saw a lot from the outside windows but it would have been nice to see with an unfettered view. Fortunately the Teatro Farnese is located in an area of Parma that has many sights and exhibits.

the theatre is an impressive auditorium, with a history of anything but a theatre. Worth a visit along with the library.

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. The structure appears to be stone but the interior of the theater is all wood. The smell and look of the wood in a structure this size... More

This extraordinary building costs just 2 euros to visit and is wonderful. It must have been mind-blowing before it was severely damaged during WW2 but the reconstruction gives you an idea of the grand size and beauty. The all wood auditorium with the stunning wall paintings and balconies at the top must have been spectacular - what a shame it... More

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

What a place; never seen a wooden theatre before. I can only try to imagine how it would have sounded with a traditional concert / play being performed there all those years ago.

Do not miss this landmark in your visit to Parma. You can wander freely and see how amzing the construction details are.
