Lonely Planet review

Stretching along the west bank of the Parma river, these formal gardens seem like Parma personified – refined, peaceful and with barely a blade of grass out of place. They were laid out in 1560 around the Farnese family's Palazzo Ducale , which now serves as headquarters of the provincial carabinieri (military police).
