Parma, Famous For More Than Cheese!
Famous for prosciutto di Parma and Parmigiano Reggiano, Parma, Italy is a hot spot for good Italian cuisine, but food isn’t the only thing you will find when visiting this city. Correggio, one of the greatest painters of the Renaissance, was born in Parma and some of his masterpieces can be found there. When visiting Piazza Duomo you will find, The Assumption of the Virgin, a beautiful golden fresco that covers the cupola. In the nearby National Gallery hangs the Saint Jerome with the Madonna and Child, along with paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Holbein, Brueghel and El Greco.
The Teatro Regio combines art and music in one of Italy’s greatest opera houses with a beautifully frescoed ceiling, gilt balconies and red velvet seating. While you are there, be sure to check out an opera by Verdi, Paganini or Toscanini.
