InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Parma

Hello to all Americans in Parma! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Parma? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Parma which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Parma is one of the pearls of Italy, offering a great quality of life for expats. The “Food Valley” is a northern Italian city known for not only its Romanesque buildings and architecture but also its music, art, being the home of some of Italy’s most delicious foods such as Parmesan cheese and Parma ham, and much more! With the regular bus services, railway lines, and cycle paths, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the stunning Italian villages outside of Parma, which are just a short bus ride away from Parma’s center.

Although Parma has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Parma, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
