Explore Parma

Within Parma tourists should definitely visit the Romanesque Cathedral (pictured above). It houses two remarkable sculptures;  the Benedetto Antelami (12th Century) and the Antonio da Correggio (16th Century). Another great place to visit is the Baptistery, adjacent to the cathedral.

The University of Parma, one of the oldest universities in the world is found here. The Palazzo della Pilotta is the location for the Academy of Fine Arts and the School of Parma. It also houses the National Gallery, Palatine Library, Farnese Theatre, Archaeological Museum, and the Bodoni Museum.

The Ducal Palace is another site for tourists to visit when exploring Parma. It was constructed in 1561 by Duke Ottavio Farnese. In the 17th and 18th centuries, it was enlarged and refurbished, and today includes the Palazzo Eucherio Sanvitale which contains an abundance of decorations dating from the 16th century. A large fortress called the Citadella also attracts a lot of tourists here.

Transport

Parma Airport is the nearest Airport to Parma, located only 10 minutes drive North. Car hire suppliers operating from desks in the arrival's hall are Hertz, Europcar and Sixt Italia Rent. For more options search and compare prices online with us, and we'll find you the perfect car from over forty suppliers. Shuttle services also operate from the airport into Parma. Book in advance to secure a seat.

Walking and cycling is popular in Parma, as most of the attractions are close together and the roads and pavements are flat. However, if you would like to travel out of Parma and into the Italian countryside then we highly advise you to book car hire, as public services do not operate on smaller country roads.

Trains also operate from Parma Railway Station to and from Milan and Bologna.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
