We felt we needed an easy day today, for reasons explained later, and had an fairly late breakfast before strolling out to see the remaining churches and artworks in Parma. Incidentally, the trattoria we had intended to return to last night was closed, so we tried another - the Trattoria Tribunale - which turned out to be not only more pleasant, but also cheaper!
