Private Castles of the Duchy Tour

Excursions
Departure from your location to discover the Castels of the Duchy, in the area of Parma. The first stop will be Torrechiara, the castle still perfectly preserved in the grand and imposing architecture, located in the middle of a vast wine area characterized by gentle slopes and rolling hills.
Take your time to discover this rare example of fusion between defensive and residential structures. The castle, reign of the love story between Pier Maria Rossi (thanks to which the castle was built) and Bianca Pellegrini preserves numerous frescoed rooms dating from the last quarter of the sixteenth century and the early years of the seventeenth century. Your daytrip will continue to another pearl of the territory, the Bardi’s fortress, a top example of military architecture in Emilia Romagna. After a relaxing lunch break (not included), take your time to discover the spaces dedicated to soldiers’ former headquarters which are now home to the Museum of Valley Civilization, the five Alpine Rooms and the new Museum of Fauna and Poaching. From 2014, the Artillery Bastion can be visited, thanks to recent renovation works. Don’t miss the chance to visit the guarding walks with its towers, the arms square, the honor courtyard, the portico , the well, the ice house, the barn, prisons and torture rooms. At the end of the day your personal driver will drive you back to your location.
