About the property

Hotel, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Exclusive suite in the historical building Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati, situated on one of the most enchanting streets in Parma. The self-catering suite offers breath-taking views on the foremost landmarks of the City: The medieval Cathedral Square and Baptistery. The suite is beautifully furnished with antiques evoking different epochs.

The palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati is owned and managed by the family of the Marquis Dalla Rosa Prati who still occupy the greater part of the building. Inside the palazzo there is a beauty center with a large range of massages, solarium, and body care. There is also an excellent family managed restaurant and a large variety of coffee bars on the street which offer a breakfast served in the suite. Available customized cooking lessons, airport transfers, guided tours and much else

The Palazzo and its Origin:

Positioned in the heart of Parma, the Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati is an elegant building with a venerable history. It dates back to the 13th century when the building was already part of what was to become the Piazza del Duomo. In the 15th century it became the property of the noble and illustrious Prati family and later assumed its present name following the joining through marriage of the Marquis Prati family and the Marquis Dalla Rosa family. In the middle of the 18th century, the palazzo took on its present appearance; the classically elegant façade was further embellished with the rich wrought iron balcony we see today and the arches of the courtyard were added.

The recent restoration of the building transformed a large part of the palazzo, which is still residence to the Dalla Rosa Prati family heirs, into a series of grand suites and other apartments.

The Palazzo, and its particular features:

In addition to beautifully appointed bedrooms and spacious bathrooms, each accommodation has the added convenience of a small kitchen for those who wish to prepare small meals during their stay. Some suites overlook the Duomo Square with a spectacular vista of both the Cathedral and the Baptistery. Cafés, sophisticated shops, galleries, a bookstore and a fragrant bakery flank the Strada al Duomo. Plus there are the many unexpected pleasures so generously scattered throughout the rest of the pedestrian center of Parma. An evening at the opera is easy; the magnificent Teatro Regio is a short stroll away. At the Palazzo, your home away from home, the Dalla Rosa Prati family cares deeply about the guests who stay in the home and likes to help them create tailored holidays in his beloved city and its surrounds.

Great location, great service.

  • 5 of 5

It was really nice to have a 2 bedroom apartment but still enjoy the amenities of a hotel. We were able to have ice and a tray of cheese, salami and prosciutto sent to our room, which was very handy after a long travel day. The hotel arranged a driver for a tour of a cheese factory and a prosciutto factory, both of which were excellent. Our driver, I believe her name was Christina, was awesome and really made the trip easy and fun. The location is ideal as we were able to walk from the train station (less than 1 mile, probably 1 kilometer) and we could pretty much walk to anything we wanted to see.

The Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

Of the many VBRO properties we have stay at, this is by far the best. You stay in a centuries old Palace that has been renovated to provided the latest and best in furnishings and equipment. Unlike the traditional VBRO rental, breakfast at the TCafe is included, as is daily maid service, complete with fresh linens and towels. The owner takes personal interest in your comfort and enjoyment. Payment by credit card is simple - a down payment prior to arrival with final settlement upon checkout. The price quoted is what you pay - no security deposit, no cleaning fee. The central location provides easy access to restaurants, attractions, transportation and sightseeing. Our challenge now is to find a better VBRO. I don't think we will succeed.
