ParmaParmesan, Prosciutto, and Pasta
One of Italy’s most prosperous cities, Parma was founded by the Romans in 183 BC. The distinguished city has many important art galleries, museums, old churches and buildings to explore in this compact city. Three delectable foods are associated with the city of Parma: parmesan cheese, prosciutto, and handmade pasta. This, of course, means that there’s also a wide range of restaurants serving local delicious cuisine to choose from. In the heart of Parma lies its cathedral square, Piazza Duomo, with its attractive cobblestone. Located within the piazza is the renowned city cathedral. This 13th century cathedral is a prominent example of Romanesque style of the Po Valley. Another notable attraction located in the heart of town is the baptistery, or Battistero. This striking octagon-shaped building dates back to the 12th century and features pink Verona marble decorated with medieval carvings. Inside, many colorful frescoes are waiting to be discovered.
