Greetings,

Hi Jules,
hope you are visiting Parma in spring , is the best season . Anyway I suggest you to rent a car or have a VT local guide to drive you for shopping. In the city vicinity you have a lot of chance for good shopping ( food,dress as Max Mara or Coccinelle bags outlet , and ...and... ) . Around the hills you have interesting castle ( ghost are included ) to visit as well the nature , you have bed and breakfast house to spend a weekend and ride horses or bike or just walking. The city is nice and atractive , many museums , churches , .......
Restaurants is not a problem as well pubs .

Travel Tips for Parma

Inside the Baptistery

.
Go inside the Baptisery to see an impressive selection of 13th and 14th century frescos and paintings.

The inside of the Parma's Baptisery is divided into 16 sides rising into 16 niches with each fresco portraying a biblical scene and surrounded by sculptures representing the months, the seasons and the signs of zodiac.

If you're used to wash cloths, bring them

by Bunsch

Our hotel in Parma included bath towels and hand towels, but not what we Americans call "wash cloths" (a small towel used to wash one's face). Luckily, my friend had brought a supply which could be left behind in each city, and I brought Olay's excellent cleansing tissues because that's what I use back in Rhode Island. But if you're younger than we are and dislike using a corner of your bath towel to wash your face, you might think about packing something you wouldn't mind discarding after your visit.

Traditional cuisine in the city centre

by Manara about Trattoria Corrieri

This is a restaurant where I go for dinner every now and then with my partner. The menu consists of familiar local dishes; the wines are very reasonably priced. The ambiance and the furniture are in the style of an old “osteria”, and Parma hams hang from the ceiling.
All the people I know agree that the food is good, but I have heard some complaints about the service: waiters being rude or mixing the orders, mistakes with pre-booked set menus. I have never met such problems, and I wonder if this is connected to the fact that I normally go there on Sunday evenings, when the restaurant is not crowded. If my guess is correct, and the staff is not able to cope with the pressure of a full house, the safe thing to do is to avoid going there at peak time, i.e. on Saturday evenings or at lunchtime on Sundays.
This is probably the only restaurant in Parma that serves an old traditional dish called “vecchia di cavallo”; it consists of a vegetable stew with the addition of minced horse meat. If the idea of eating horse meat gives you the creeps, remember this name in order to avoid it. Tortelli are a typical local dish and here you can find very good ones, with three kinds of fillings: potatoes, pumpkin (zucca in Italian) or ricotta cheese with beet leaves (erbette). If you wish to try all of them you can order a mixed dish (we call it “tris di tortelli”). For the very hungry I recommend Risotto alla Parmigiana and then Stinco di Maiale (pork shin), because they come in big servings.

Vescovado

by croisbeauty

Vescovado is Bishop's Residence, situated just in front of the Cathedral. It was founded in the first half of the 11th century, ordered by the Bishop Cadalo, the future anti-Pope. The internal portico was erected in the 15th century. The palace accomodates a rich collection of paintings and seven slabs dating back to the 12th century found in the Cathedral's Presbytery.
In front of the palace stands small but beautiful sculpture of a girl with the manuscript. Unfortunatelly I couldn't collect any information regarding that sculpture.

Palazzo Ducale

by Airpunk

The ducal palace is located in what is now the city park. It was built from 1561 on, but several changes in the following centuries gave it a more baroque appearance. The palace is now used by sicentific institutions.
