The national capital Rome is located 250 miles (402 kilometers) southeast of Piadena, while Milan is 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the west.
When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck from your holidays, it's good to keep in mind that Piadena is merely just the start; Lombardy has been blessed with an abundance of scenic and cultural delights. Take a trip to the Cathedral of Cremona and Torrazzo of Cremona in and around Cremona, about 17 miles (27 kilometers) to the east of Piadena.
Mantova, is another good spot to head to. It is 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Piadena and offers a wide range of things to see and do, such as Mantua Cathedral, Palazzo Ducale di Mantova and Piazza Mantegna. If your itinerary allows consider checking out Palazzo Te and Stadio Danilo Martelli before returning to Piadena.
If the weather forecast makes you want to stay indoors, go to Lombardy's art galleries, palaces and mansions. Travelers who come to Lombardy enjoy the wide range of open-air markets, farms and open-air museums here.
Why not take the opportunity to relax and enjoy during fun activities such as shore fishing or wildlife watching. Both are well-loved options for both visitors and locals alike. Delve into a side of the region most visitors don't see by spending time with an expert guide on one of the wildlife spotting tours, city walking tours and culinary tours.
When your time is up in this unique place, say farewell the way Italian's do, with a hearty "Ciao."
