Discover Piacenza

Planning a getaway in northern Italy and looking for a city that's a little off the well-worn tourist path? Look no further than the charming city of Piacenza.

Located just over 40 miles southeast of Milan, the city is perfectly positioned for a day trip. But if you'd like to stay a little longer, you'll find plenty of attractions and activities to keep you busy while in Piacenza.

Spend a few days here and you'll find beautiful outdoor spaces, striking architecture, and a storied history. Throw in a thriving foodie culture and it's easy to see why you'll love going exploring in a motorhome rental in Piacenza.

The Great Outdoors

If you arrive in Piacenza keen to explore the city's best park, make a beeline for Parco della Galleana, which is found roughly 10 minutes south of the city center. When you're ready for a bit of peace and quiet after the buzzing activity of the city, this is the perfect place to visit. There's heaps of grassy space if you want to enjoy a picnic or kick a ball and a network of walking paths when you feel like taking a stroll. A walk along the river near the western edge of the park is especially relaxing.

Next, you might want to drive your motorhome rental north from Piacenza towards Parco Regionale Adda Sud. Spread out along the lower course of the Adda, this 20,000-plus-acre park is a landscape of forest and farmland. It's only a short drive north of the city but it offers plenty of tranquil and beautiful terrain to explore. The best way to do that is on a bicycle, with more than 120 miles of cycle tracks on offer. Bird watchers are also well catered for and will love the chance to spot western marsh harriers and a variety of other rare species.

Finally, if you don't mind venturing even further out from Piacenza, you might want to check out Pietra Parcellara. Found around an hour to the southwest, this imposing mountain has long been a favorite destination for Piacenza's outdoor enthusiasts. The hike to the summit is challenging but rewarding, while the mountain is also a popular spot with mountain bikers seeking an adrenaline rush.

Camping in Piacenza

Once you book an RV in Emilia-Romagna, you'll need to search for a comfy place to camp. One option you might like to consider is River Camping, which is found southwest of the city in Rivergaro. Campsite features include a playground, beach volleyball court, and bowling green, while there's also a water park nearby.

Another place to park your RV rental near Piacenza is Camping Cascinotta, which sits south of Piacenza in Rizzolo. Open all year round, this campsite is set in leafy, wooded surroundings in the Nure Valley. And if you're traveling with your dog, the good news is that pets are also welcome here.

There are several campgrounds to choose from in the surrounding area, so make sure to compare a few different options before deciding which one is right for you.

Exploring the City

The area around Piacenza had already been occupied by other peoples prior to being settled by the Romans in 200 BC, so it won't surprise you to learn that there are plenty of fascinating historic attractions on offer here.

One of the best of them is the Musei Civici Di Palazzo Farnese, which sits in an opulent palace on the banks of the River Po. Constructed in the 1300s and further extended in the 16th century, the palace is a sight to behold. But the museum is the real highlight here, best known for holding the famous bronze Piacenza Liver. Ancient weapons and artifacts are also on display here along with works by 16th- and 17th-century artists, so there's something to suit a wide range of tastes.

Next, steer your RV rental in Piacenza to the Duomo di Piacenza, a Romanesque cathedral that dates back to the 12th century. This historic church has been beautifully preserved and is recognized by its simple but beautiful front facade. The cathedral's bell tower juts more than 100 feet skywards, and the colorful frescoes inside are also well worth a closer look.

Another great attraction you'll want to explore while you're in Piacenza is the Basilica di Sant Antonino. Found in the city center not far from the cathedral, this Gothic church was built in the 14th century. There are some gorgeous frescoes inside, including work by Gavasetti, and the centerpiece of the church is a large bell tower. It's another of Piacenza's beautiful historic sites and yet another example of just how much there is to see and do in this wonderful city.

And with other great destinations like Cremona and Parma also within easy reach, there's no reason why you couldn't spend a week or longer exploring the region. So find a campervan rental in Piacenza and check out the best attractions and experiences the area has to offer.
