This theater is amazing in Parma. Italy's towns have so many treasures and this one is worth visiting! They have done an excellent job of restoring it.

This building has the wow factor as soon as you walk in and it takes your breath away walking around it. Would love to watch any kind of musical event here.

For the entrance fee (€2) it is pretty good value. An incredible big room made of wood and built in the style of the Roman amphitheatres.

I have been here before, but would go again! It is charming to see. The history of this theatre is great.

It's a pleasure just to stand amidst the wood and absorb the workmanship and the resilience of those who first built it, and those who repaired it after it was bombed during WWII. Built as an armoury and tournament venue and later used as a...More
