Parma also has a lot to offer in art and architecture: don’t miss the main square, with the cathedral or duomo, and the gorgeous baptistery made of pink marble (see photo). Go inside the duomo, look up at the cupola, and gape in awe at Correggio’s fresco masterpiece, Assumption of the Virgin, done 1526 – 1530.
Visit the 400-year-old Teatro Farnese, made completely of wood with lots of trompe d’oeil paintings.
