Parma holidays

Parma is in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna, famous for its architecture and beautiful rolling countryside. The city itself straddles the meandering Torrente Parma and enjoys a rich history that is reflected in its many beautiful buildings, particularly those along the Piazzale della Pilotta and the Piazza del Duomo. Few are more impressive than the city’s 11th century Duomo Cathedral and the neighbouring Battistero tower, which is famous for its distinctive use of pink Verona marble. Other prominent landmarks dotted around Parma include the Casa di Toscanini and the Palazzo Ducale. The city’s world-famous Parma ham (prosciutto) is definitely worth tasting and its Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, which has been made in this part of Italy for over 700 years, is a favourite with visitors and locals alike.
