Not to be missed, even though it's only two rooms. The first room is beautiful and interesting, spent a good twenty minutes here. But the second room was unbelievable - the optical illusions make it three-dimensional, and the Correggio putti are so endearing. It is...More

A incredible conception of Corregio, originally elaborated to a abadessa room. You need to go. The ticket is not expensive and it is located on the way to everything you want to see in Parma.

If beforehand you read up on the background to this building, you'll get more out of it - but if you just wander in off the streets, you'll still be completely charmed. The centrepiece is the pair of private rooms for which the Abbess Giovanna...More

This site was nice but it was really on a smaller scale than expected. The Baptistery is the way better sight of the two if you do not have time for both. Also, the Camera has limited hours & limited days open. Having said all...More
