Enjoy a city tour off-the-beaten paths in this very surprising town overlooking the Po river between the hard-working Milan and the pleasure-seeking Parma. The original capital of the Farnese duchy in the 1500s and the very first province annexed to the new-born Italian nation in 1848, Piacenza is surprisingly full of precious art collections, secret palace gardens and the unique flavors of Emilia Romagna!

 

Walking calmly through the medieval arts-and-crafts alleys with your expert local guide, you will sooner or later jump into the monumental beauty of Basilica di Santa Maria in Campagna, one of the Renaissance jewels of Italy housing the vivid paintings by Pordenone.

  And if we told you that the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, so full of the typical mysterious symbols of the Middle Ages, has its dome frescoed by Guercino?

  Ready to indulge in the Piacenza flavors now? A tasty selection of the local cured meats (Coppa, Pancetta, Salame PDO) paired with Grana Padano PDO and a glass of Malvasia or Gutturnio CDO will be the worthy conclusion of this special foodie tour for pioneers like you!
