i find the website quite easy to use - but the schedules aren't posted a long way ahead - i forget how long

so if you can't get the dates you are looking for - look at the same day of the week at an earlier date - the schedules won't change much - if at all

it is necessery to validate your ticket before you board a train in the little yellow boxes on the platform

No, I can't ;-)

That's because the database for the rail system is not loaded yet for June 27th (the database is incomplete after June 12th or so, for which there will be a major reload).

However, not to worry, as train schedules don't vary that much over the course of the year. In fact, this line probably varies more between weekday and Sunday than from winter to summer (because of the commuter trains).

So, look at the schedule for next Sunday (May 16th)...you will see umpty-bumpty trains all day long. I would suggest just taking a regional train, as they don't require reservations, and they are only 8.40 euro each way. And, really, the higher speed trains aren't all that much faster on this line.

OK?

You can go straight to the English pages of Trenitalia here:

As Bill says, June 27th is still too far away but times and fares won't change much, if at all.

Journey time is from 1h 20m, one-way fare from 8.40 euro. Both vary according to the departure time you choose (there are plenty of departures on Sundays).

Travel Tips for Parma

Parma

by call_me_rhia

Parma is city of about 185000 inhabitants and over 2000 years old which belongs to the Emilia-Romagna region. The scenic river Parma, which flows into the Po river, runs through it and the old town has plenty of cobblestone alleys. This should be a reason good enough to visit it. Most people, however, come to see it for culinary reasons: this is the area where Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and the famous Parma ham come from. There are plenty of sights worth visiting, the most significant being the 11th-century Duomo Cathedral and the neighbouring Battistero, historic theatres are such as the Teatro Farnese, imposing old palaces and rich museums.

Never on a Monday

by Bunsch

Not just in Parma...many (perhaps most) Italian museums are closed on Mondays. This can be a spirit-killer if you're only in a city or town for a single day and the museums are unavailable, which is why the Spirit moves me to suggest that much of Italy's great art is found in its churches, virtually all of which are open every day of the week (and are generally free, to boot). So find your Caravaggios and della Robbias in the local duomo, and soak in the notion that people have been hallowing with their prayers the place where they are situated for many hundreds of years.

Defending tower

by croisbeauty

This is the only defending tower left after the bastions around Parco Ducale were demolished in 1905. The tower is located across the Verdi Bridge, left of the main entrance to the park. It has typical and recognizable structure like most of the others defending towers which can be seen in the northern parts of Italy, strong but yet decorative.

Piazza del Duomo

by Mikebond

Piazza del Duomo is the artistic jewel of Parma, since it includes the city's greatest monuments, namely the Duomo and the Battistero ("Baptistry"), as well as the Palazzo del Vescovado ("Bishop's Palace").
Due to this concentration of medieval architecture, the local and national administrations are pushing for the square to be included in UNESCO's World Heritage List.

San Giovanni

by Manara

A Benedictine abbey dedicated to St John, the Apostle and Evangelist, has been in the heart of the city since the year 980. However the buildings changed a lot during the centuries, and the existing Abbey Church of St John was built at the time of the Renaissance. The monks were a wealthy and cutlurally refined sponsor, so they were prompt to catch the new trend in arts and architecture in the XVI century. In fact, the fresco of the vault, painted by Correggio, was a very innovative piece of work in his time. It represents Jesus flying down from Heaven to meet the dying John and take him up, where the other Apostles are waiting for him.
Another jewel in this church is anothe painting by Correggio, above the door to the sacresty. It represents John as a young man, near him there is an eagle, because this bird was an emblem of St John.
