We visited this theatre after our host recommended it to us,we were glad we visited. We didn't know it existed however it truly is a masterpiece. I loved the smell of wood upon entering and the sensation of stillness inside the theatre....definitely worth a visit.

We never knew that Teatro Farnese existed, but are very glad we made a visit. It is amazing being totally made of wood.

In the Farnese palazzo is this theatre entirely made of wood. No colours all around only the natural colour of the wood. The performers are on the floor in the middle of the spectators who are sitting around on a kind of wooden staircase. The orchestra is sitting and performing on the podium. Being in Parma don't miss this!

I went for a solo wander around town. I had read about this place. Two Euros and I was in. It's a large old wooden theatre, and was empty when I arrived, so I could have a thoughtful walk around. One of those hidden treasures of Italy. Very nice.

Walking in the Palazzo della Pilotta, I was not expecting such magnificence. The sheer size of the theatre, the ability to walk on stage and the quality of the restauration makes it an absolute must see.

This theater is amazing in Parma. Italy's towns have so many treasures and this one is worth visiting! They have done an excellent job of restoring it.

This building has the wow factor as soon as you walk in and it takes your breath away walking around it. Would love to watch any kind of musical event here.

For the entrance fee (€2) it is pretty good value. An incredible big room made of wood and built in the style of the Roman amphitheatres.

I would probably rate with a Good rating, interesting building which was rebuilt after the war. Entrance fee is very reasonable, I think 3 Euros.
