The cathedral is free entry, but the duomo-baptistery combo ticket comes with a tablet audio guide for both sites, which is very good. The cathedral tour is a little longer than one might expect, but is of course very interesting.

A relatively modest exterior but a most magnificent interior. The density of wonderful artistic content is breathtaking. A must see experience if you are in Parma. What's more, entry is free, all the more reason to leave a donation given the wonder of the cathedral.
