I've visited this Teatro three times with foreign friends visiting Parma. An awesome monument to visit and should not be missed when in Parma.

Excellent. Even it is not the original, it is rebuilt after WW II. this is the THEATER! It is so attractiv, that you just stand and look around and don't believe to your own eyes. It is hardly believe that 400 years ago was built originally. It is a must, if you are in Parma!

Magical place! This is the 400 years old theater made by the Farnese family. It has been rebuilt after a WW2 bombing but it has been rebuilt exactly as the original. You will be impressed by this magical place and by the smell of wood of the theater. It's also the main entrance to the National Gallery of Parma.

This was more impressive than we thought it was going to be. Once you have explored the rebuilt theatre you can then go onto the Art museum which has many impressive works of art. The highlight for me was to actually see a Leonardo Di Vinci drawing.

Parma may be most famous for her hams but this theatre is definitely the most gorgeous hidden gem in this fine city, that is slightly off the beaten track. We had made a detour on our road trip from Cinque Terre to Milan into Parma specifically to savor and to purchase prosciutto (seriously!) from its "birthplace". A peripheral search revealed... More

Glad I stopped by! There was hardly anyone inside, so I got to admire the architecture and artistry in near silence--until I had to test the acoustics by singing a bit onstage! Interesting adjoining art collection, too

Impressive and hidden away! A must see in Parma. Under the teatro stairs leads into the main gallery which is full of beautiful paintings. I visited in the afternoon- some of the gallery was closed however the price was discounted- just three euros!

This was a fascinating take-in in Parma. Much of this structure was destroyed during World War II, but the supurb reconstruction has restored it to its original glory.

An extremely beautiful place which I would definitely recommend you to go and visit however there is no information provided whatsoever about the history or really anything. So if you go there you may want to look it up before and find out some information.

The Teatro was very impressive, completely built from wood but the museum is even more impressive hidden away under the stairs. Definitely a must see.
