Where we are

Parma is located in northern Italy, in the region Emilia-Romagna, halfway between Bologna and Milan. An ideal position to reach in a short time tourist attractions such as Venice, Ferrara, Verona, Turin as well as Cinque Terre, Portovenere and Portofino in Liguria and resorts along the coast of Romagna such as Rimini, Riccione and Cervia.

Situated along motorway A1 Milan-Bologna and along A15 Parma-La Spezia, Parma has two motorway exits:

1. exit "Parma Ovest", next to the link-up of A1 and A15, about 10 Kms from town, direction Milan;

2. exit "Parma" from A1.

Once you get out of the motorway, you can park your car in the exchange parking Nord and reach the city centre by bus: line 21 on week days and on Sundays and festivities line 2.

From Airport Giuseppe Verdi, only 5 kms away from the heart of the town, the historical centre can be easily reached by taxi or by bus n. 6. Flights to Rome are taking off daily from Parma. A Ryanair flight links Parma to London every day except on Saturday.

Parma railway station is linked to the main Italian towns and to the most important European cities.

Most of the trains travelling on the Milan-Bologna line stop in Parma at least once a hour while those following the lines Turin-Bologna and Genoa-Bologna are quite frequent, as well as trains bound to the coast of Liguria and Romagna. Rome and Florence have a direct link thanks to intercity and eurostar trains.
