Parma is famous for its beautiful monuments and excellent food, but colors were the first thing that struck me. Yellow, pink, green, orange, red, make this small city of Emilia-Romagna (a less-known region of Italy which has so much to offer) a joyful place and it’s no wonder Parma is considered one of the prettiest towns in Northern Italy and ranked by The Telegraph one of the “World’s top 20 places for the good life“.
Colors embellish the more modest houses, and colors highlight the elegant facades, the harmonious architecture, the delicate moldings decorating the windows.
I visited Parma as part of the #Blogville campaign, created and managed by iambassador in partnership with Emilia Romagna Tourism. As always, I maintain full editorial control and the pleasure of strolling around and taking these photos could hardly be more authentic.

Not only are the colors spectacular but I love all the windows. It’s like the alleyways are filled with light.
You’re right, Gaelyn, colors brighten everything!
Beautiful photographs! I am such a sucker for doors and windows myself, will have to visit Parma just out of this!

So glad you like the photos! And also that you share my love for doors and windows 🙂
If you ever get the chance, go and visit Parma (and there’s a lot more than the colorful alleys), as well as many other towns in Emilia-Romagna. Such a lovely region!
