This part of Palazzo della Pilotta is so charming. Whene you enter the room you can smell the wood and that space will enchanted you. This place couldn't be described by words. Entrance was at that time 5 euros. After enter the main entrance of Palazzo you will go up to the first floor where you can buy the tickets... More

You pay €10 for a ticket that includes this theatre, the Galleria Nazionale, the Museo Archeologico and the Biblioteca, all part of the Palazzo della Pilotta. The lower tiers of this old theatre are of timber, an unusual feature that in itself makes it worth a look for any theatre buff. The other attractions are a bonus.

Teatro Farnese impresses by sheer size, the space it occupies and by its all-wood interior. The ticket includes the antiquity museum and art gallery with a Leonardo's drawing as its highlight.

Beautiful place to visit and quite impressive! Sad though that the gallery adjacent to the theater was partly closed, especially the part exhibiting Leonardo da Vinci's drawings...

Certainly worth a visit for anybody staying even only a few hours in Parma. You seldom see such a well preserved wooden theatre with this wealth of decorations etc...

We went on purpose to Parma to see the theater and I was extremely happy about the visit. We took a private tour guide to deeply understanding the history behind and I must say it was a good choice. Tickets in the afternoon are cheaper in the morning and with the same ticket you can access at the painting gallery... More

This is the best thing we have seen in Parma. It is an old armory dated 1618 , it's all wood!! There are beautiful churches Parma, but this is unique. The ticket to see it often includes a museum with paintings of Correggio, Beato Angelico and Parmigianino. Worth it.

Quite a stunning and incredible surprise. Very much unexpected given the exterior of the building. Nice to go on stage and imagine performing!

Tired after a day of traveling, and it was 5 pm and the ticket lady was not informative, so we were unclear on what we were paying for. It cost 10 euros each for the theater and 2 museums, which was okay though we had only 2 hours to view. We were not on a tour so probably didn't appreciate... More
