The historic centre of Piacenza is one of Emilia-Romagna’s most interesting sights, thanks both to its strategic location near the border with Lombardy as well as its significant position on the Via Francigena. The capital of Piacenza province, the town sits amid bucolic countryside dotted with vineyards and castles. It’s an excellent jumping off point for trips into the wider region. There are several impressive parks on the doorstep, while in town the historical highlights include elegant piazzas, the Palazzo Gotico and Piacenza’s Romanesque Cathedral, known the astonishing frescoes in its Cupola.
