Discovering Parma 

Named UNESCO City of Gastronomy and Italy’s 2020 Capital of Culture, Parma is a hidden gem located in the beautiful valleys of the Emilia Romagna region. It is a small yet lively town, full of enchanting historical and architectural sites such as the famous Cathedral, Baptistery and Farnese Theatre.


During our event, as well as enjoying the Capoeira, we hope you’ll be able to relax, stroll around its cobbled streets and appreciate all the beauty that the city has to offer. For those who want to discover the charm of the historical city centre, we offer a sightseeing tour with a local guide on Sunday 19th May in the morning. It will include Piazza Duomo (Cathedral Square), entry to the famous pink marble Baptistery and a stop off at the famous Silvano Romani deli shop with the possibility of buying local produce including delicious Parmesan cheese and ham. 

Flights & Accommodation 

The best airport for Parma is Bologna (Ryanair and BA) with good train connections (the journey takes an hour and train tickets are from €8 each way). Milano Linate (Easyjet and BA), Milano Malpensa (Ryanair and BA) are also well connected (train tickets from Milano Centrale station to Parma are from €18.50 each way).

You can find information about train times and fares by looking at Trenitalia's website 

Parma is busy in May when many food and arts exhibitions take place, so hotels and B&Bs can fill up and prices can spike up quickly. We have reserved some rooms at Hotel Torino, a pleasant, comfortable and newly refurbished hotel in the heart of Parma's historical centre, with the following rates*:

Single room + breakfast: € 90 a night per person

Double/Twin room comfort + breakfast: € 70 a night per person

If you wish to stay at Hotel Torino please contact the concierge at 0521 281046 directly quoting "LSC Capoeira Herança Italia" as a reference 

*Please note that the offer is only available until 31st March 


Other good hotels in Parma at reasonable prices include Hotel Button, more classic and quaint, also in an excellent location, close to the main square and restaurants and bars of the city centre and Novotel, slightly more expensive but modern, slick and close to the station. 

If you would rather a self catering option, Parma also has a good range of Airbnbs. If you decide to go for this option, remember that it is important that your accommodation is close to our meeting point for the workshops otherwise we cannot guarantee transport to and from the venues.  


Once you have booked your flights and accommodation, please let us know details of your arrival/departure dates and times, any dietary requirements you might have by filling in this form  


Food in Parma

We plan to have lunch and dinner all together on the Saturday after the workshops and, for those who want, on Sunday night after the Batizado. We have negotiated some good deals in some of the nicest pizzerias and restaurants in town:

Pizzium (Lunch on Saturday) – Pizza, dessert and a soft drink. This is a modern pizzeria making authentic neapolitan pizza at very reasonable prices (around €20 for a pizza, soft drink and dessert) 

daMat Giovane Italia (Dinner on Saturday)– Fixed menu (€25 payable at the restaurant) Traditional starters - Torta fritta (traditional fried dough parcels) with Parma ham and other salumi (cold cuts), tasting of two traditional main courses: Tortelli di erbetta (traditional homemade fresh pasta with spinach and ricotta), and Risotto , water and a glass of house wine (white, red or Prosecco). 

Trattoria O'Belvedere (Via Varese 1) - A beautiful, recently re-styled trattoria located by the ricer, with a fantastic range of local dishes at very good prices.
