How to go to Tardini from the train station

If you are arriving in Parma by train you have to know that to the Tardini it is almost a 20 minutes walk. You can also make it a bit longer passing thought the beautiful city center and piazza Garibaldi then turning into via Repubblica.

If you don’t want to walk there are some buses from the station, almost every 30 minutes:

number 21 (direction Sorbolo);

number 23 (direction S.Ilario, not on Sunday);

number 9 (direction via De Chirico).

During match day, due to the security traffic block, the stop for all these busses should be “Barriera Repubblica”, close to “Barilla Center” mall, where there is a big fountain in the middle of the road and from where it is 3 minutes walking to Tardini. Anyway tell to the driver or to people that you are directed to the “Ennio”.

Ticket costs 1,20 if bought in advance from a kiosk or 2 euro on the bus (bring exact amount possibly, driver should’t have)

To come back from Tardini, traffic is usually quite busy and it is better probably going by feet. In case you have few time to catch the train you could call the Taxi at this number: +39 (0)521252562 Better reserve it in advance and giving “Barriera Repubblica”, around the fountain as a meeting point, since it is already in the way to the station.

Where to park for a Tardini match

UPDATE: when we wrote this note the parking was available. In last weeks it use to be all reserved for Parma Club and stadium professionals – they probably red our post 🙂 – but  we leave it here because in front of the parking gate there is another, smaller, free parking. In case you don’t find place there there is Barilla Center payment parking (via Emilia Est, 7B)

If you are coming to Parma for a match in Tardini for the first time or just would like a suggestion to park safely from meeting opponent fans and for free before a big match, maybe this quick guide can be useful.

Especially in big matches day driving and parking around the stadium can be a mess and a loss of time. We suggest you – as many local Parma fans does – to park in Auditorium Paganini parking.

It is a free parking located in the back of Barilla Center and – listen – open from 6 am to midnight from 1st April to 31st October and from 7 am to 8 pm from 1st November to 31st march.

Distance from stadium is almost 800 meters, so not impossible to walk.

It is used by many Parma fans and not so known outside the town so you probably won’t find opposite team fans there.

To arrive there the suggestion is to put on google maps: via Toscana 5/a, Parma. It will be easier since around there you will find lots of one way streets.

Get into the gate, leave there the car, then walk on the opposite way keeping Auditorium behind you. You will exit then another gate then go straight until you pass Barilla Center (on your right side) and arrive in via Emilia est, turn right arriving to a round square with a fountain. Following the trees street you will find on your left you will arrive in 5 minutes to the Tardini stadium, hopefully for a good match.

If when you are in front of Tardini you are looking for Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs office, to meet us or other fans before the match, it is the yellow building on the left side of the gate, looking at it.

Remember: only thing to check is gate closure time, especially in winter time.
