Next tot the Palazzo there is a gate. If you ring the bell in the morning you can get to do a tour (no guide) in the Palazzo

It is a large, well kept park just beside the city center on the banks of the river (dry in the summer). Nothing really special here, but if you want to sit in grass under some trees, it is a nice place. There is also a small cafe there.

Not to die for, but pretty nice if you need some "greenery" time and a nice stroll among the trees. There's a beautiful little lake with lovely ducks ready to be fed by the visitors. It's also a nice venue if you're a runner. Would recommend a morning jog there.

Wandered into this park while trying to get our bearings after just arriving in Parma. Lovely park and gardens and nice to see it being used by locals and tourists alike. We had a nice drink and a sandwich at the bar in the centre of the park. Just what we needed after our journey from the UK.

We went to the park to look for caches, and we found it very nice. Quiet, with a lake full of big turtles!

Walking, jogging, running, biking...you can do it all here. Also, many young girls sunbathing, couples picnicking, and Carabinieri strolling about as well. Very safe with beautiful trees, large open fields and some nooks and crannys

Worth the visit, it's a very big parc with a nice palace. Inside, there is a nice "lake" with a fountain and may fishes and turtles. People are giving food to them, it is a very cosy environment and atmosphere. Take your picnic and have a go.

Just across the river and within easy walking distance of the historic centre of Parma, this park is a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the city. Whilst this park has probably seen better days, it is still worth a visit for a quiet stroll. There are plenty of benches to take a rest in the shade of the lovely... More
