Didn't know what to expect but was blown away by the fastness. From the staircases to the monstrous iron gates, I found it absolutely beautiful. Helpful staff to assist you, the only down side was that you had to pay to enter certain rooms which...More

An unfinished imposing Middle-age castle hosts six (or more) ranging from archaeology to paintings, medieval weapons, coaches, glasses and ceramics and an astonishing Botticelli Madonna. The staff is particularly kind and helpful, the price is definitely low (6 Euros).

In general, we found Piacenza only okay. This was the best we saw. The Botticelli was good, the artifact shaped like a liver was cool, the carriages display was well done. The set up is nice, but most of the artifacts are average. Not a...More
