Beautiful heart of Piacenza
May 2019 • Solo
When I visited, there was an event taking place right in the Piazza Cavalli which made it very crowded and impossible to peacefully enjoy it. Anyway, the Palazzo Gotico and the two equestrian statues that give the name of the square as well as the other buildings are creating a really beautiful Italian piazza.

The square takes the name from two bronze horse statues on the 2 sides which give it elegance and majesty. It is nice to enjoy a coffee in the open space in one of many bars around the square.

Central Piazza Cavalli in Piacenza, Italy
Oct 2018 • Family
This wonderful square is the first thing we saw in Piacenza. It is named after the equestrian statues in the square. Beautiful and wide. We read that it is used for public events throughout the year.

Unique building

Probably the two bronze equestrian monuments are enough to attract art lovers from distant places. Imposing and baroque they are truly awesome. Palazzo Gotico is also charming. And a meridian cuts the square in two diagonally.

A fantastic surprise

People do not talk about Piasenza as an interesting Italian city and I have to say that it is surprising because it is a beautiful city and Piazza Cavalli is the cherry on the cake. Great atmosphere, fantastic buildings and lovely cafe.

Located in the middle of the historical center and commercial roads. Open and beautiful square with the two statues being the main attraction.

Nice piazza with some nice restaurants adjacent ot it. Piacenza is a quiet city with an interesting past. As you wallk through this area, you can imagine the times past and the myriad of people who have passed through from Dukes, and dutchesses, to emperesses or emperors... craftsman that build wonders to the Allied troops that liberated the area..
Enjoy this gem in northern italy

In the middle of the city there is this square, surrounded by famous and very interesting buildings, like the Palazzo Gotico, Palazzo dei Mercanti. he two riding statues of the Farnese's are beautiful on the square.
