Some useful links to plan and make the most of your experience in Parma and its territory
The central location makes it the only accessible fairground to all of Central and Northern Italy whitin a day’s journey. The districts within a 200 km distance are inhabited by over 15,000,000 residents with high purchasing power, strong propensity to invest and to purchase high-quality products.
For those who would like to take advantage of our warm Emilia-Romagna hospitality, there are several hotel options in the immediate vicinity: in Parma and the greater province, our hotels provide over 14,000 rooms.
Emilia-Romagna works in perfect synergy with neighbouring urban centres such as Piacenza, Cremona, Reggio-Emilia and Modena which triple the accomodation capacity. To access these facilities, Fiere di Parma is in direct contact with the most important incoming agencies, guaranteeing and providing advantageous promotional packages for all possible needs.
The territory in which Fiere di Parma is located has an inherent passion for excellence in the field of agriculture, and it is for this reason that Parma has been crowned the Capital of the Italian Food Valley, UNESCO – City of Gastronomy and the seat of European Food Safety Authority.
An excellence fostered by heritage of inimitable flavours: from Prosciutto di Parma to Culatello di Zibello, from Parmigiano-Reggiano to the wines of the hills of the Province. Tantalize your senses by partaking in various gastronomic itineraries that reveal the traditions of a unique land. Visit the Food Museums that describe the history of the regional cuisine and products.
The artistic wealth of this “golden city” is easily understood by looking at its streets, its architecture that charms visitors with sublime works like Baptistery, Correggio’s domes, and the Farnese Theatre. Outside of the city limits, one finds glorius relics of the past: the castles of Torrechiara and Felino, The Ducal Palace of Colorno, the Castle of Soragna and San Secondo.
Moreover, there are innumerable cultural offerings such as musical events and theatre: the opera and theatrical season, jazz and classical music shows.
