Travel Blogs from Piacenza
Piacenza is a small town about an hour from Milan. Although it is small it does have many churches and a decent range of shops
The Cathedral in the centre (Duomo), unfortunately was closed when I got there so I could not see inside. For entertainment there were some Italian girls listening to a stereo playing English …

... and unfortunately that was at happy hour..so Neil insisted we all have a tequila! As the group was told to not leave a gazelle (girl) alone in Barcelona and to travel in a group, so we all headed back to the hostel. Instructions to find our way back was to follow the team tracks.

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.
