Palazzo della Pilotta is a home to the National Gallery of Parma, the Archeological Museum and Teatro Farnese - three treasures in one building. I wrote separate reviews for them. The 1583 building looks very austere and almost scary from the outside, but do go...More

The theater is breath-taking and unlike anything we've seen. And the museum has a collection of exquisite works -- especially early Renaissance. Very good throughout

There are 4 pieces to the place. The theatre, the pinoteca, the ancient art and library. All but the ancient art are worth the visit. 3 rooms. You can get through it quickly but if you are short on time leave it out. The staff...More

You can't go to Parma and not get lost in the beauty of this complex building which brings you back to the Farnese time.

If your time in Parma is limited it is worth going here to see the teatro if nothing more. However it doesn't take too long to look at the exhibits in the national gallery at the same time.

Some specialist say it is like the Palazzo Farnese in Piacenza. The only common thing is that both are huge, large and high rooms. The palace itself is nothing to see, but the museums are great.
