25 Hotels in Parma, Italy

Parma is a quiet town in the region of Emilia Romagna, set between the mountains chain of the Apennines and the Padana Plain. The city is divided into two parts by stream with the same name, that just before entering into the historic center, joins with the Baganza. Parma has always been considered as a privileged place due to its quality life, thanks to its good food, for the people kindness and for its culture. The city also has a close relationship with classical music, having given birth to great artists like Verdi and Toscanini.

Parma was founded in 183 b.C, when the Romans decided to create a new settlement along the Via Emilia, the road that ran to the Adriatic Sea. Since then the town grew continually becoming a fervent center of commerce. In 1545 it was set up as a Dukedom, governed by the Farnese family, which runs until 1749. During this period the city's structure was renovated and Parma became a refined cultural centre, so that was dubbed the "Athens of Italy". Since 1815 the duchy passed into the hands of Mary Louise of Austria, wife of Napoleon, who was much loved by the people for his enlightened government.

The old town is rich in historical monuments with a wide variety of styles, ranging from Romanesque to Liberty. The Palazzo della Pilotta is certainly the most spectacular of Parma. This large complex of buildings was built in 1580 by Ottavio Farnese and nowaday houses the Theatre and the Academy of Fine Arts, where they are exhibited works by important artists like Leonardo, Parmigianino and Beato Angelico. The other great tourist attraction of Parma is the Cathedral, which is considered one of the best examples of Romanesque art in Italy. Inside it houses the Deposition of Christ, a magnificent sculpture created by Benedetto Antelami in 1178.
