If you love medieval frescoes the baptistry is a "not to be missed" sight as is the cathedral. The condition of the frescoes is excellent and you can sit inside and just enjoy!

Worth visiting this example of Romanesque architecture with Byzantine pictorial decorations which cover the cupola on the inside and the frescoes on the surrounding walls undertaken at a later date by Emilian craftsmen. Has been restored beautifully.

The Battistero di Parma was absolutely breathtaking. From the outside, the red and white facade is something to be seen, the doors are astounding, and the inner sanctum is breathtaking. The baptismal font is gorgeous and huge. It was very interesting to see the combination...More

I have visited Italy so many times with so many cities and I didn’t think I would find a Battistero as amazing as the one in Pisa, but I was wrong because this one is as nice in a different way. Built in pink marble,...More

Baptizing was done here in a huge font in the middle of this beautiful highrise, where children could be immersed completely. Around on many different levels are beautiful old paintings with marked Byzantins style depicting many aspects of the Bible. The outside of the building...More
