The Parma Cathedral doesn't look that different from the outside but INSIDE is where you see the big difference. It is totally covered in paintings from floor to ceiling. It is a little dark but still the overall effect is stunning. The cathedral is free although you do have to pay for the baptistry next door. If you are in... More

If you are in Parma, this cathedral is a must see. Brought my mom, and just watching her face was priceless. Parked on the street, but be careful, I got a 41.00 euro parking ticket. I thought I was fine, apparently not.

Very peaceful cathedral with majestic art and altar. The serenity of the place adds to its beauty, we visited with our teenage kids who enjoyed the experience. A must see in Parma

Observe every little detail on the outside and then enter and be amazed at the beauty of the internal architectural and decorative elements. Totally worth your time!

This is one of the most impressive Cathedrals we saw in Northern Italy and it was free and uncrowded! The ceiling, in particular, was breathtaking. Also has a small museum and Baptistry worth a look, though they are not free.

One of the more memorable churches i've been in. No entrance fee but worth getting an audio guide to get some historical and artistic background of the church. Please DO NOT miss the dome. The assumption of the virgin by Coreggio was one of the most beautiful and moving and awe-inspiring pieces of art I have ever seen. I was... More
