Elegant, fascinating and superb: Parma, the petite Paris.
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Parma Ham, handmade pasta, tasty wines: Parma’s definitely got it all. I would say it’s not a chance the city was elected by UNESCO Creative City for Gastronomy, in year 2015. Parma has certainly been playing a major role in improving everyone’s tastes, Italy and abroad, delivering delicious food to be tasting, discovering and dreaming of.
But that’s SO not just it. You wouldn’t believe how much more the city has to offer!
Parma is a city of music, still filled with iconic notes from Maestro Giuseppe Verdi opera works and Toscanini’s conducting, both native here: Aida and Nabucco notes still resonate in the air!
Parma was capital of its own Grand Duchy for over three hundred years, back at the time Farnese and Bourbon Dukes made the city a modern, vivacious capital intended to be competing with Paris and Vienna. And finally, Parma was one of truest cradles of Italian Renaissance style, still adorned with giant, vibrant frescos by Masters Correggio and Parmigianino, whose beauty was consecrated in Stendhal’s masterpiece The Chartreuse.
Elegant, fascinating and superb up to the point of being called the petite Paris by its own inhabitants, Parma is a city for pleasures, from fine living to excellent food, music and wines.
Let yourself be seduced by the fascination of a city having been attracting visitors of all times!
