Another beautiful park to stroll through

Does not have the same water features or bistro as Ducale, but still a beautiful location for a long walk through the trees, away from all the noises of the city.

I went to Parma to visit for an afternoon. The Cittadella is a somewhat long walk up the hill but managable. It is a rather nice park setup; while I was there it was a day and night time festival. I was impressed with the size of the rides they could fit in there.

What a nice place to visit and enjoy this restful outing area. People are really enjoying this place and taking care of their conditions. I was really surprised to see how keen Italians are to excercise themselves! Cyclists with and without dogs, joggers, walkers and basketball players.... and small Tivoli for small children. All this in a nice neighbourhood with... More

Maybe someone remebers Chicago's song "saturday in the park". The atmosphere described in that song is the real "plus" of this park, once a fortress and now an istitution of parmesan leisure time. Children playng while grandmas enjoy ice creams and chats sitting at at the little cafe, kids playing basketball in the shabby basket playground, people of any age... More

The cittadella in Parma is an extremely unique place. An old citadel, its bastions no longer contain cannons, but a bike loop, a running path and outdoor palestra (gym) that circle the walls. It is a common place to meet people, walk dogs and just recently an historical restoration of one of the bastions was completed.
