Day Trip to Piacenza

Day-trip idea: Piacenza.
1) Small historical city center is worth a look! 
2) The surrounding hills are beautiful and filled with excellent Trattorie at which to eat "Tortelli con la coda"! We personally love Locanda Cacciatori.
3) Tiger just opened a small store there in Corso V Emanuel - lots of Christmas present ideas, art & craft supplies, housewares at cheap prices
4) A Lebanese restaurant (not excellent, but not bad either:-))
5) Wax Museum in Rivalta
