  • A real treasure hunt in this Emilian city outside the great routes and yet rich in historical links with the major families of Italy and Europe, since the time of its Roman foundation along the Via Emilia! We will literally go for... domes and flavors!
  • With the slow pace of a pleasant walk through the medieval alleys of the city you will first discover the treasures from the Basilica of Santa Maria in Campagna, one of the Renaissance jewels in the city. The dome of the church hosts the great fresco paintings by Pordenone.
  • The second stop-over will offers you a real treat, an Italian unicum: walking inside the walls of the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta it is possible to climb up to the dome frescoed by Guercino and see suggestive views of the city from above.
  • Ready to feed off the Piacenza flavors now? A tasty of selected cured meats with some of the Piacenza PDO (Coppa, Pancetta, Salami and Grana Padano) paired with a glass of Malvasia or Gutturnio of your choice will be the worthy conclusion of this special tour!
