Every bit as amazing as everyone describes. Unfortunately large groups of Italians go and completely ignore the signs that ask for silence and no photography. Many are teenagers whose teachers are not interested in asking them to behave.

This has to be one of the main attractions to see in Parma. The interior is beautiful and worth spending time to enjoy.

Parma Duomo is one of the most ornate I have seen with the wall frescos all through. I really enjoyed visiting this place which has a small entrance fee

The highlight of the Duomo is the frescoed dome of the Assumption by Coreggio. In order to see it properly, you have to put in a euro to light it.
