Occupying a strategic position in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy on the banks of the River Po south of Milan, Piacenza has had a turbulent history. As a result there is plenty to do for a couple of days in the town. You could also combine your trip with a visit to the nearby towns of Parma or Cremona, both well worth seeing. Piacenza can be reached from the UK via airports in Milan or Parma.
