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

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.
