About
Parma the City of Perfume is an exclusive opportunity to immerse yourself in the history of the city and discover, through an olfactory journey, the tradition of perfume and the protagonists of its supply chain in Parma from 1816 to 2020. The greenhouses of the Ducal Park introduce us to the discovery of the famous Violetta di Parma. Numerous traces of Maria Luigia of Austria’s predilection for the violet can be found inside the Glauco Lombardi Museum. The visit to Violetta di Parma 1930 shop allows us to retrace the life of Ludovico Borsari and the birth of the perfume that later became a symbol of the city and the Duchess. We will visit an Acqua di Parma Flagship Store to get to know the brand from its origins to new variations and discover the history of the companies of the Parma perfume supply chain, which arose many years ago in small laboratories, to grow to the point to have become some of the major references worldwide for perfumery packaging, bottles, caps and labels.

Perfect experience
Jun 2021
We enjoyed in total three tours with Artemilia (1) Antica Farmacia San Filippo Neri e Oratorio di San Tiburzio, (2) Scopri l’Oltretorrente and (3) Parma, la Città del Profumo and all of them were a really great experience and we can recommend them wholeheartedly to others. Our guide Michelle was a great expert on her field and she talked about all the three topics with great knowledge and passion.
If you are looking forward to dive into Parma, embrace it and get to know the city like a local, this is the tour that suits for you. Grazie mille Michelle, a presto … a Parma!

Thanks Lucia, your words have filled our hearts with joy. Some of the tours you mentioned were conceived during the difficult period of the lock down, during which even if we could not meet people we tried not to get discouraged studying and devising new itineraries and experiences. We are pleased that you were fascinated by the history of the Antica Farmacia San Filippo Neri, the Oratorio di San Tiburzio, the Oltretorrente and the Perfume chain in Parma, some of the hidden treasures of the town. There is still so much more to discover! We hope to meet you soon here in Parma… Best wishes, Michelle
