Parma was an area originally settled during the Bronze Age and its name comes from the Latin word for shield. Much later in its history Parma was ruled by various Italian noble families over the years and the castles which they made their homes still litter the landscape.

In the modern era Parma came under the control of Milan and was divided according to a feudal system. Parma was where the Italian wars were carried out but once the French were expelled Parma became a Papal state. Today it boasts one of the oldest universities in the world, Parma University. Many well known painters and sculptors have come from Parma also.

Parma is in the heart of the Emilia Romagna region which has some beautiful countryside, and renting a car is certainly the best way to get out and explore the hills and valleys there. There is also a small river running through Parma.

Many of Parma’s monuments were destroyed during World War II when Parma was the site of some partisan resistance but most of them are still standing. There is the old Romanesque cathedral which has some important art works housed there as well as several other pretty churches and monasteries. Impressive palaces can also be seen in Parma such as the Palazza Della Pilotta which has an academy of fine arts in it.
