This was a lovely theatre to see! However, I do have to admit that I was a bit disappointed by the lack of information regarding its use, construction, etc.

The size and the use of wood for such a large theatre make this "Teatro" very impressive. It would deserve more explanation to fully grasp the grandeur of the past usage of this unique building

Stunning wooden theatre, a reason to visit Parma in itself. Truly breathtaking, you walk in through a darkened corridor to heighten the drama and then from first glance you stand looking up and around at this amazing spectacle. The glorious smell of wood enhances the experience. Italy is not all 'churches' and with this Parma has a true wonder.

For those who enjoy architecture, this is THE place to see. Eventhough it has been rebuild after the war, it looks old and authentic.. It is connected directly to the National Gallery, which is veru convenient.

Note - you have to climb 68 steps to get to the entrance to the Farnese Theatre which is part of a complex of attractions contained in the Palazzo della Pilotta, the others being the Galleria Nazionale, the Museo Archeologico and the Biblioteca Palatina. In fact the Farnese Theatre is the entrance to the Galleria Nationale, hence the combined ticket.... More

Teatro Farnese is one of three unique cultural must sees in Parma that is not comparable to anything else quite like it. If you have the chance to be present during a concert or performance, do whatever you can to attend.

We visited Parma as a stopping-off point between Bologna and Milan, on the last day of our holiday. Thanks to TripAdvisor, I had read about the Teatro Farnese - but even the glowing reviews couldn't prepare us for what a wonderful and unique place this is. Even though we visited on a Saturday afternoon in the middle of the summer,... More

What a wonderful piece of architecture. And restoration as well. One gets amazed by all the wood work and delicacy. Not to miss.

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