Teatro Farnese will take the breath away from every art lover

The original fresco's and the wooden interior are simply sensational. Makes you think of Shakespeare's wooden theatre, except for the grandeur !

All made of wood. It is one of a kind, probably the most charming theatre. The atmosphere, the smell... A beauty!

Fantastic building, really worth seeing. It's regrettable that the most of it was destroyed during the war, but the reconstruction is amazing.

Totally surprising entrance to a gallery. It is old, majestic and many ( including us) will find it unique

The Teatro Farnese was Build between 1618 and 1619 and was destroyed during the Second world war. The reconstruction is a master piece and absolutely worth to see.

From the outside the large building looks rather plain. However, once you enter the theatre the interior is stunning. This is one of the best things to see in Parma.

There was a temporary concert venue being constructed just outside the museum so it wasn't easy to find the entrance. However, once inside it was worth the effort to see this incredible structure. It's staggering to see how much work has gone into creating this space and definitely worth a visit when in Parma.

While the theatre has been redone, they nailed it with this amazing wooden recreation inside a stone surround. Catch this on your way to the museum after the library.

The pictures show the theater lighted, so I don't know why it was so dark the day of our visit. There is no way to enjoy it when you can hardly see it. There was only a small area from where you could see it.
