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.

... probably won’t be the last of the duomos we see on this trip.
A short stroll to the Civic Museum ala Ponzone (the city museum of Cremona). This is an extensive art museum with lots of paintings ranging from the 1300s to the 2000s, some of which were done by Cremonese painters. BUT, the crème de le crème was a collection of guitars, lutes, and mandolins on loan from Carlo Alberto Carutti, a Milanese entrepreneur ...
Day 8 Wednesday, May 20 2015 Vicenza to Cremona!
Wednesday was a good train day. On the Brescia to Cremona leg, the conductor gently lectured for not validating/stamping our ticket before boarding. This is a little complicated. On Regional trains the ticket is 'open'. No set time when you use it. If a conductor does not come by your seat and punch your ticket, then it still could be used again. It has no date to be used by. (Often in Italy ...
... violin makers came from this town. This museum must have had 400 different violins and cellos. It was interesting to read what wood was used and why. It all came down to the sound the different woods made within the violin. We still had 45 minutes before the Duomo opened so we took our opportunity to have a beer in the plaza in front of the church. We visited the Baptismal, noting terribly interesting and ...
... br> Alessandro also shared some of his dish with us, insisting I try it. It was porcini mushrooms cooked in 3 ways. All fresh (no dried) and tasting of the earth, they were amazing. 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 ...
European Adventure 2012
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!!
