  • You need a ticket, but you get a good audio guide with it, so you can understand the content of each painted scene in all the different levels of painting, up to the centre of the dome. Very nice...  more »
  • It might be a nice place - but first you need to find the place to get the tickets and don't expect this place is open when the Battistero is open.  more »

  • An undoubtedly interesting church on a nice market. Interesting details on the facade and tower.
  • An extraordinary building. Parma is small so worth a side trip for a couple hours to see this building and beautiful city.
