We are interested in theatre so this was a 'must see'. It really is amazing, a huge space with tiered wooden seating for over a thousand people I would say. A great reconstruction after it was very badly damaged in the war.

The Teatro Farnese was built for a wedding five centuries ago in Parma's Palazzo della Pilota. It suffered damage in World War Two but has been lovingly restored. Made almost entirely of wood, it was successfully adapted in 2016 for a presentation of Verdi's Giovanna d'Arco (Joan of Arc) as part of the annual Verdi Opera Festival. But this places... More

Impressive place with fantastic wooden architecture. It comes as a surprise, being hidden in a large building. It's a must see in Parma and, together with the National Gallery, makes a very interesting visit.

A great place to visit and easily accessible in the city centre near the Stendahl hotel. There is so much space and plenty to see to satisfy a variety of tastes.

Teatro Farnese dates back to 1618 and is among the charms that dot the landscape of Parma, a wonderful city overlooked by many tourists. It is dedicated to Bellona, the goddess of war, and the Muse. Ravaged by war, the theater was nearly destroyed and rebuilt in the late 50's. Napoleon's second wife was the Duchess of Parma and influenced... More

Quite a awe inspiring place. Did not expect the size of a theater. Good place to spend half an hour. In the middle of the city

The theatre is tricky to find because it is inside the Palazzo Pilotta. The entry ticket includes two other museums in the Palazzo. In the theatre there is just one place to stand and view, you can't wander around. It is an amazing space, oval shaped and made of wood with a proscenium stage at one end. It's a great... More
