We thoroughly enjoyed the labyrinthe, it was cool in the heat of the day. And very interesting . By the time we had lunch we didn’t really have time to visit all the galleries. But a very interesting day out

Had high hopes this would be one of those ‘out of the way’ hidden gems but that was not really the case. Cost our group of 3 adults and 2 teens 72 euro (about $15/person) to sweat it out on a warm day in the maze. The labyrinth wasn’t too hard and it created some good bonding moments, but I’d rather get our $$ back for another cheese plate in nearby Parma (which is not to be missed!).

Felt like an eccentric billionaire built the place to show off his money and take advantage of tourists. Not a total waste, but I wouldn’t recommend

This is said to be the largest Labyrinth in the world. If Labyrinth’s are your thing you might enjoy it but I found it pretty boring to walk around for an hour in a maze of bamboo to eventually end up at a plain and uninteresting central building. The charge for this is 17 Euros and it is not worth it. There was a little tower with a viewpoint but all you could see was the top of the bamboo trees. Kids might enjoy the labyrinth. It felt like a tourist trap to me.
The art museum does have some interesting and unusual works.

Came on recommendation of travel agent. It is about half an hour drive from Parma. The entry price is not cheap. The labyrinth is not difficult to navigate. The museum attached to it is not big but enough but interesting enough. One and a half hours is enough. Longer if you want to spend more time in the museum.

Pricey but excellent fun, the maze is made from different types of bamboo. The history of why this was built is fascinating and the short film is worthy of watching, which is inside the museum area. An interesting collection of art. Free parking.

We felt our labyrinth visit was overpriced at 18 euros each.
The labyrinth itself is quite small and we felt it would be hard to get lost in it. We walked around it slowly for about 30 minutes and apart from the pyramid centre, there is little of interest within, unless you happen to be a bamboo enthusiast.
To be fair, entry also allows viewing of Ricci’s art collection of books, paintings and sculptures. There is no fault that the art was not to our taste.
My low rating was due to the price and also the poor experience that we had at the café which was highly disorganised. After queuing for 10 minutes I was told that table service outside would be attended to by a waitress. But after another 15 minutes passed there was no sign of that so, like others, we left with no food.

What an amazing find in Fontanellato! Our family enjoyed walking through the bamboo maze and finding the impressive building and pyramid in the centre. The art collection was intriguing. Staff were very helpful and even took a photo for us in front of the nice black Jaguar on display in the main building. Surprised there were so few people there.

Very BAD weather, we really wanted to wander in the bamboo labyrinth. Way to drenching. The museum was fascinating- could have stayed and read the FMR journals for days...I loved the Art Deco dancers....and many other things. The employees of the Labirinto were great.

Only disappointment besides the weather- the restaurant. The restaurant is NOT managed by FMR. They advertise to stay open until 15:00 at 14:40 we went in and they said they were closed. Getting to the Labirinth-involved a 2.5 hour drive. There was a delicatessen full of delicious meat products....for carnivores. I should have brought a picnic.

Take the subject line "Think twice before visiting with teenagers" literally.

I visited myself with my teenagers, and it was an enjoyable visit, but I am surprised to see how much money and talent has been invested in this place without ever thinking about this audience in mind.

If you are an adult, you will enjoy the style and elegance of the place, and probably the variety of bamboos.

If you come with kids until 12, the labyrinth is good fun and you have some reduced fee.

But if you come with teens, you will feel like in a blind spot. First, you pay full price, that is no less than 72€ for a family of 4. Second, the labyrinth is only made of bamboos and there is nothing hidden than you can look for, such as sculptures or other things that could broaden the horizon of our beloved teenagers.

If you are insensitive to the cost, I would still recommend to go. If you are a bit sensitive, think twice...

You can lose yourselves in the maze and then in the art museum. On a hot day being under the bamboo was great. The big surprise was the complex at the centre. The bonus was the amazing art museum as well as the food and drink opportunities.
