How about if we told you that Parma is more than just Emilia-Romagna’s only UNESCO City for Creative Gastronomy? What if we also told you that it represents a lifestyle that is truly admirable, a strong sense of cultural self-awareness, and a challenging fusion of tradition and modernity? The Parma Sightseeing Tour reveals the heart of Italian culture and our passion with beauty in all of its forms.
If you are looking for an Art tour and Culture tour, then you’d rather pick the Parma for Art Lovers experience: a must-do for lovers of Late Renaissance and Mannerism as the main expressions of painting and sculpting in the 1500s. With our Art and culture classes, you can immerse yourself in the past. You’ll find artistic treasures buried in churches and galleries and learn about the close connection between Parma and the aesthetic trends Rome was setting during those amazing golden years.
Beyond Private Doors, a unique component of the downtown Parma art tour, transforms tourists into special guests at Casa Monti Stocchi, one of the city’s most authentic ancient palaces, by having the tour led by the owners themselves. A historical tour is about to begin. Within a stone’s throw just outside the city walls, the province of Parma belongs to a touristic network comprising more than 30 ancient castles with peculiar architectural patterns according to where they were built one thousand years ago. With our art and food tours belonging to the Fine Food and Romantic castles series you truly feel you are going back in time…if it just weren’t for the Parmigiano and Prosciutto smell spreading everywhere!
Last but not least, every opera enthusiast should visit the picturesque lowlands of Parma, also known as Terre Verdiane, to spend A Day with Maestro Verdi and follow the early years of one of the greatest composers in history. Come join the historical adventure and experience art and culture in a way you’ve never experienced before.
