TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Vip Piacenza
3 Star hotel where the owner speaks a little of many languages but it helps if you can speak Italian.
Breakfast is simple: Bread, cheese, ham, jam, coffee, tea, orange juice - help yourself between 8-12.
Rooms as expected. Wi-Fi is limited, probably only on the ground floor.
Sockets in the rooms, mostly hidden put you can charge from the light switch/socket combo. I also found a European socket behind the door.

I am now insisting that we come back in Autumn one year so we can gorge on fresh porcini!
By this stage, of course, we were absolutely full but Alessandro would not hear of ...

The police talk (politely it seems) to the guys, telling them they're not supposed to play volleyball in the park. Somehow I suspect that it wasn't the volleyball that got the caller angry, though...

... first the town looks like a boring, generic plains town. But while looking for the town center, I'm pleasantly surpised to find the entire historic district surrounded by a castle wall and moat! It's a faily low, very thick wall with chambers and tunnels inside--some that you can visit--an rounded low corner towers. On the far side is a tall tower overlooking the river and a beautiful bridge. Definitely worth the ...

Last night after a few hours of good sleep I awoke about 2am and as always my
head starts thinking of things such as the journey ahead, places I will see,
what route to take etc. However what really was going through my mind was my
bike!! I had left it just outside the building and exactly where I could not see
it from my room. Of course I start to worry about it and am desperate to make
sure its safe!!
