The 4-star MOH Villa Ducale hotel in Parma is the spectacular result of a harmonious coalescence of contrasting architectural styles. First constructed as the official residence for one of Parma´s noble families, it has since been transformed into a luxurious hotel, which in two dedicated wings, offers either the characteristic charm of the historic building or the serene environment created by innovative modern design. Just one km from the ´Parma Centro´ motorway exit and just a few minutes from the historic city centre, the hotel boasts an ideal strategic location which yet again reflects its distinctive duality of history and modernity. Travelling business men and women will find all they need to make them comfortable and productive in their work. Tourists can spend a captivating holiday discovering the many artistic, gastronomic and musical treasures that Parma has to offer; a city that still pays homage in many artistic forms to the Maestro of Italian opera, Giuseppe Verdi.
