Pictures of Historic Parma, Italy

Join us for a virtual tour of the Emilia-Romagna city of Parma

By

Parma is famous for its art, architecture, cheese and ham. Just about everyone has heard of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and Prosciutto di Parma, but few tourists come to Parma to appreciate its considerable charms.

In this picture gallery you'll see pictures of the 12th century Baptistery, one of the most interesting buildings in Europe. Our pictures include the unusual bell tower on the Governor's Palace, the Palazzo della Pilotta that was built in 1583 and has many museums inside and Parma's Ducal Park, a peaceful place to wander around in near the train station, that was built in 1561 and turned into a formal French garden in 1749. For photos of the Romanesque Cathedral, see Parma Duomo Photos on Europe Travel.
