As we left La Spezia our hostess made another suggestion, that was to visit the city of Parma and while there to be sure we tried the tortellini. She had not steered us wrong before so off we went.
The Cathedral of Parma was, from the exterior, not striking, but the inside we simply amazing. There was also a wonderful baptistry adorned in pink marble which literally glowed pink in certain light conditions.
