How to reach Parma?

Parma railway station, near the historic center of the city, offers connections to the main Italian cities and the best European capitals. Almost all trains on the Milan-Bologna line stop, at least once an hour, and there are not frequent enough connections on the Turin-Bologna and Genoa-Bologna lines, as well as trains that reach the Ligurian and Adriatic coasts. Rome and Florence can be reached directly by Intercity and Eurostar.

In case of need, there is also a bookable shuttle service that connects Parma with the Mediopadana high-speed railway station in Reggio Emilia.

Parma has an airport called “Giuseppe Verdi” five kilometers from the city center. It is easily reachable from the city center by taxi, or by bus number 6.

There are various ways to reach Parma by car:

  • using the motorways that connect it to other cities in the region: A1 Milan-Bologna (Parma exit) and the A15 Parma-La Spezia (Parma Ovest exit);
  •  using the main roads that connect it to nearby cities, villages and hamlets in the province, such as: Via Emilia, Via Mantova, Via La Spezia and Via Cremones, Via Colorno, Via Langhirano, or Via Traversetolo;
  • using the ring road, which, describing an ideal ring for the city, offers a shortcut from Parma to the main roads, motorway entrances and exits.

Parma has bus connections to numerous Italian and European cities provided by the Beltatour, Sena and Eurolines companies. On the website it is possible to search by entering departure and destination points: the system then shows the times, the frequency and the company providing the service, with useful contacts to request further information or to make a reservation.
