The apartment was much larger than photos show. It was clean and well appointed. Communication before we arrived was excellent, and Vittorio was very helpful upon our arrival and arranging a taxi to take us to the train at departure time. Unfortunately we spent three days in Parma during an unusual heat wave. The apartment was not air conditioned, there were no fans, and open windows invited mosquitoes. So we ended up being pretty miserable at night. However, I would not hesitate to return to this apartment during more favorable weather. It is really a lovely apartment and excellent location. Very good places to eat, markets, and a galleria within a few blocks.
I had a fantastic experience in Parma, and the apartment, as well as how clean and close it was to great food, made the trip even more perfect! I highly suggest this place. I am also a young, solo-traveling female, and the apartment and neighborhood felt extremely safe.
