Reggia di ColornoColorno is located only 15 kilometers from Parma and can be reached in 15 minutes by car or public transportation. The Royal Palace is open all year round, with an admission fee.
The palace was built by the Farnese family in the eighteenth century on the ruins of the ancient fortress and was one of the most luxurious court residences throughout Europe.
Don’t miss the internal gardens, partly in Italian and style and partly in French style, decorated with fountains and streams and crossed by wide avenues. You can also visit the apartments of the Duke and Duchess and the astronomical observatory.
Torrechiara CastleThis Castle is a masterpiece of the 15th century’s military architecture. It has a beautiful room called Camera d’Ora, one of the highest expressions of international Gothic painting in Italy, and one of the most important cultural and architectural treasures of the area, easily accessible in about 20 minutes by car.
The castle is now a national monument, protected by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture. In the past it was used as the set of the movie Lady Hawke with Michelle Pfeiffer.
The castle structure has a large and interesting underground system of secret rooms, open to visitors in some extraordinary occasions.
Park of the Correga ForestFor nature lovers we recommend a visit to the park “Boschi di Correga” , at 15 kilometers from Parma. Established in 1982, it was the first park to be opened in the Emilia Romagna region.
The park extends over the river terraces between the river Taro and the river Baganza and has an extension of about 1270 hectares. The landscape is characterized by an alternation of woods, meadows and cultivated fields, crossed by a number of streams and small artificial ponds, created to embellish the landscape and to irrigate the fields in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The Carrega Woods offer visitors a variety of cultural activities, events and exhibitions held in the area all the year round.
