Join this private walking tour led by a local guide to discover the beautiful city of Parma and get to know the different nuances that history, art, culture and tradition have left in the so-called "small capital". Discover the medieval epoch, the rich legacy of Renaissance art, the splendor of the Farnese era, the Bourbon reconstruction of the state, the happy period under the rule of the Duchess Maria Luigia of Austria and, finally, the contemporary era.

Follow you guide and explore the church of St. John the Evangelist, the central "Piazza Duomo" and its monuments, the basilica of Santa Maria della Steccata. You'll also pass along the "Teatro Regio", the "Palazzo della Pilotta" and the Ducal Palace and will get to know their histories and importance in town through the words of your guide.
