Parma is in the central northern region of Italy called Emilia Romagna. The city has become famous as part of a brand name for its ham, and is largely off the tourist trail which makes it ideal for anyone wanting to explore traditional Italy. There's a wealth of churches, renaissance and baroque architecture here, as well as a historic university and the wonderful Farnese Theatre. If you take up car hire in Parma, the surrounding region is renowned for its wonderful castles.
Hiring a car in Parma is available from the airport and destinations throughout the city including nearby Bologna.
Parma Cathedral and its nearby baptistery - Battistero di Parma - are two of the buildings that characterise the city and its architecture. In terms of culture the Farnese Theatre and the Regio Theatre are two of the finest auditoriums in Europe. The National Gallery is well worth a look as is the Museo Lombardi. If you're hiring a car in Parma, you''d do well to visit some of the local castles which the area is famous for; the Reggia di Colorno is just 17km on the SS343; Castello di Torrechiara is 21km south of Parma; Rocca Sanvitale di Fontanellato is north-west on the SS9. Rent a car in Parma and visit the castles and even nearby Bologna, but be aware of the inner-city car tagging system for access.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
