Ever enjoyed an exclusive visit at an ancient aristocratic home? Be the special guests at Casa Stocchi Monti, one of the most authentic ancient palaces in downtown Parma!

  • Private licensed expert guide for 3 hours (on site, English/other languages upon supplement)
  • Exclusive access to Casa Stocchi Monti in the owner’s company
  • Parma style merenda (glass of local wine/alcohol free drink, Parmigiano-Reggiano and/or other organic cheeses, artisanal strolghino salami, typical focaccia aka Rosetta or gluten free bread, the authentic Duchess’s dessert, espresso coffee)
  • Everything not mentioned in inclusions

Meet an expert guide for a short stroll in town to first get an overview of Parma’s history and lifestyle and you’ll be finally ready to ride back in time into this jaunty Palazzo dating back from the Middle Ages to the early 1900s.
The owners themselves will welcome you in the private rooms where their ancestors’ paintings stand out along medieval frescoes and they’ll even let you step in the old family-run printing house that served the local court of Duchess Marie Louise, second wife of Napoleon and daughter of the Austrian emperor Francis II from Habsburg. After a last look at the more recent spaces redesigned in Art Nouveau patterns by renowned architect Mario Stocchi Monti you will indulge in a rich and tasty aperitivo in the truest Parma style of once upon a time!
