Michael did his usual exploring walkabout, and found a strange thing: Parma closes on Sunday!
Seriously, hardly anywhere was open apart from the galleries and museums - even some churches were closed. On Sunday?? Parma is an odd town, as it is difficult to describe it shortly.
... a mission and a plan. We were going to head over to the train station (conveniently located near our hotel of course) and rent a car. That way we could head up to see Lake Como on our own schedule rather than fighting train and ferry time tables and we would have the car already to begin the rest of our road trip. Piece of cake right? Wrong! After spending about an hour searching the train station for the three or four different rental car agencies that were listed ...
