Shopping and Spa weekend in Parma
Get ready for a short break in Parma, a microcosm of everything beautiful about Italy and definitely worth a weekend trip. We offer You the opportunity to discover an area rich in art, culture and excellent typical products, but also to take care of your physical well-being and make exclusive shopping.
Located in the Northern part of Emilia Romagna region between the Po River and the Apennine Mountains, Parma is an elegant city with a compact historical center, full of art masterpieces. Stroll through Piazza del Duomo, where the highest artistic and religious expressions of the city stand, such as the stunning Cathedral, a Romanesque basilica dating from the 12th century, and its Baptistery. The Pilotta Palace, the symbol of ducal power, is also worth the visit. Its rooms host the Archaeological museum, the beautiful Palatina library, the National gallery and the Farnese theatre; the courtyard is the scenery of a Festival with shows and concerts every summer.
Enjoy Your relaxing stay at Relais Borgo Casale where You can revive your senses while being pampered by customised spa packages and treatments. Included a romantic Candle light dinner.
You will also experience designer outlet shopping at Fidenza Village, which is home to more than 100 boutiques of the most prestigious fashion and luxury brands with reductions of up to 70%.
As one travels west among the hills of the Arda Valley, the Medieval profile of Castello Arquato immediately charms and surprises. Explore this beautiful borough going around its alleys and picturesque stone houses, wonderfully preserved and in some cases restored. The fascinating medieval atmosphere of the castle made it the ideal location for both costume-drama films, such as Lady Hawk by Richard Donner, and important historical recollections, that are often held here all year round.
End the journey with a relaxing full day excursion by boat to Cinque Terre, a geographical area of the eastern coast of the Liguria region in northern Italy. Enjoy the beautiful views of the collection of villages (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, Monterosso) designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
