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.

Slices that had been crumbed and sauteed just about blew my mind as did those that were simply grilled with garlic. 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 ...
Let's get right down to it. When Sean and I planned this crazy road trip, the last think I thought I would be doing is sleep training Jr to a bed…in a mobile home that is hotter than the NYC subway in August and as bright as Times Square at midnight. The fact that he has even entertained the idea is a miracle so for that I consider us blessed but this is one of my least favorite parts of parenting and that’s mostly because it seems to go great for every other person ...

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!!
