If you get in after 3pm, entry is half price and a very reasonable 3 euros. And very much worth it. The theater is the showpiece of the building, but the museum is large and has a lot on display. The building is colossal, which...More

The Palazzo is great as are the National gallery, the Farnese Theatre and the Library. However it is in need of upkeep. The park is shabby and indeed the City currently can't afford even to turn on the fountain a great pity but a real...More

Reasonable priced at $10.00 Euros. The Michaelangelo, Head of a Woman, was alone worth the price of admission. Loved all the Corregio paintings, collection of Maria Luigia, and the bronzes from Rome not to mention the Teatro Farnese where we happen on a rehearsal in...More

The library and the theater were amazing! You get to see very detailed wooden constructions in their finest possible form. The national and archeology museum were fairly small. The price was fair.

The Palazzo della Pilotta is a big building located between the River and the historical town centre in Parma. Externally, it looks austere and somewhat unfinished in places due to war damage and the destruction of an adjacent church, but inside I believe it houses...More

Palazzo della Pilotta is a home to the National Gallery of Parma, the Archeological Museum and Teatro Farnese - three treasures in one building. I wrote separate reviews for them. The 1583 building looks very austere and almost scary from the outside, but do go...More

The theater is breath-taking and unlike anything we've seen. And the museum has a collection of exquisite works -- especially early Renaissance. Very good throughout

Visiting Palazzo della Pilotta one should keep very clear in mind the fact that it looks almost spartan in its decoration, this is due to the fact that it was never conceived as a residence but as an annex to it with an immense library...More

There are 4 pieces to the place. The theatre, the pinoteca, the ancient art and library. All but the ancient art are worth the visit. 3 rooms. You can get through it quickly but if you are short on time leave it out. The staff...More

You can't go to Parma and not get lost in the beauty of this complex building which brings you back to the Farnese time.
