Parma Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Parma is the birthplace of two great painters (Correggio and Il Parmigianino) as well as the conductor Arturo Toscanini. The duchy of Parma-Piacenza was founded when Pope Paul III separated these two papal territories from the Papal States and gave them to his son. The city was ruled by the Farnese family from1545-1731, then subsequently by the Bourbon-Parma dynasty. Today, it retains the soft light and elegant charm that Stendhal depicted so well in his novel The Charterhouse of Parma.
