Gorgeous Cathedral in Parma with many beautiful frescoes. In particular the cupola has one that creates the illusion of a much higher ceiling. Beautiful pipe organ, interesting chapels like small museums room inside the church.

If you are a painting lover, you must see this cattedrale which is decorated with almost painting anywhere in the interiors such as ceiling, walls, corridors, etc, almost no space empty without paintings. And All in good conditions, renovated or not renovated.

To be frank, the Duomo does not shout anything from the outside especially coming from Milan (sorry to compare but I cannot help it). However, the Parma's Duomo is stunning on the INSIDE. It is totally a hidden GEM! I spent quite a lot of...More
