Rebuilt with few original elements of xvXVII century after the bombardments of WWII is still a very impressive and unique monument deserving the visit

The Teatro Farnese is really impressive and if you are in Parma you can not miss it. The very impressive thing is that it is all made of wood, the proportions are grandiose and it will be very interesting to view a show in there....More

Ornate and beautiful, mostly wooden, structure. Be sure to look for the patches that are colored differently. They are original. This is best if you have a good guide, since there are many stories you would not otherwise know.

It really is beautiful. The attached museum is worth seeing as well. Fortunately it was not crowded when we arrived and we saw both the theatre and museum in 1.5 hours.

This is a must-see in Parma. The information we received were a bit scarce, but the Teatro Farnese is impressive!

Unusual. A completely wooden theatre , a copy of one in a nearby town. Worth seeing, but note that there are no single tickets, you must pay 10 euros for a combined tickets to the theatre, the gallery, the library, the archaeology museum .

This is an impressive theatre within the palace complex. You can't just get ticket to see this, you have to buy ticket to see the few things in the palace, for 10 euros per person.
