2 nights in Parma - suggestions for Parma and other towns

I am going to be spending 2 nights in Parma and based on what I read there is plenty to do in Parma for us to occupy one day. I know that Piacenza, Ferrara and Modena are close by. We will have a car. What places would others recommend for the other day?

Parma, Italy

Among the town you have mentioned I suggest you to visit Ferrara, although is the most far from Parma. Piacenza and Modena are nearer to Parma, but I think Ferrara is well worth a visit. What about Bologna? Is nearer than Ferrara and is a really nice city.

If not Bologna, then Ferrara - Ferrara is a lovely, historic, and very beautiful town, but you could surely spend two days in Parma seeing the sites and enjoying the food tours.

With 2 nights/1 day, I would stay in Parma. More than enough to do there.
