Pass By: Monastero di San Giovanni Evangelista

Your private guided tour with a local expert begins at the Church of St. John the Evangelist featuring a beautiful marble Baroque facade.

Pass By: Teatro Regio

Leaving the Duomo, your next stop is the prestigious Teatro Regio, which embodies Parma's rich music tradition. Built in Neoclassical style - as evident in its facade with a portico of ten Ionic columns - it was commissioned by Duchess Marie Louise Habsburg, the second wife of Napoleon, who was granted the duchy of Parma in 1816. Teatro Regio today offers a solid calendar of distinguished cultural events, including the annual Verdi Festival, which has gained international recognition.
