Private Parma & Modena Tour

Excursions
Departure from your location to Parma, beautiful town built on the ancient route of the Via Emilia and crucial junction during the Middle Ages. Take your time to walk the old town center and be fascinated by the elegance of its churches, squares and buildings. Get the chance to admire the monumental complex of Piazza Duomo, where the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Bishop’s Palace create a medieval corner of rare beauty. Continue your tour with a walk through the historic center to reach Piazza Garibaldi, also known as Piazza del Comune or Piazza Grande , which represents the center of the city life today, overlooked by beautiful buildings such as the Captain’s Palace , the Town Hall and the Governor’s Palace, and also shops, restaurants and cafes which have earned the town the title of “UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy”. Don’t leave Parma without seeing the spectacular Teatro Farnese, ephemeral and delicate jewel enclosed in the austere Palazzo della Pilotta, which is among the most important monuments of the town together with the Palazzo Ducale and its garden, just across the river, place of delights and leisure reserved to the court. Your daytrip will continue to Modena, where you will have free time for lunch and explore the city. The old town of Modena holds in its heart the ancient Cathedral of Modena which, together with the famous Ghirlandina and Piazza Grande, has been designated one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites since 1997. Walk along the Albinelli Historical Market, the College of St. Charles, the Foreign Prince’s Palace, the “Luciano Pavarotti” Municipal Theatre, witness of the bel canto tradition of Modena, and the romantic Mazzini Square – once a Jewish Ghetto – with beautiful Art Nouveau mansions. Don’t miss Palazzo Ducale, one of the greatest Baroque buildings in Italy, which hosted the Este court settled in Modena from Ferrara in 1598. At the end of the day your personal driver will drive you back to your location.
