If you are looking for things to do in Piacenza and are interested in history, art and architecture, a visit to the Teatro Municipale in Piacenza is a must. Located in the heart of the historic center, the Teatro Municipale is one of the most precious artistic jewels of the city.
Built in 1804 in neoclassical style, the Teatro Municipale houses a sumptuous main hall decorated in Rococo style, with frescoes, stuccoes, sculptures and a magnificent central chandelier. Even without attending a concert or opera, ballet or drama performance, it is worth taking a guided tour of the theater to admire the beauty of its architectures and decorations.
Guided tours are available every day, except when there are shows or rehearsals underway, and last about an hour. Tours are available in both Italian and English. Admission tickets cost € 6 for adults, € 4 for students and over 65s, and entry is free for children under 6 years old.
After exploring the theater, we recommend a walk in the historic center of Piacenza, which surrounds it. You will discover squares, churches and ancient palaces from different historical periods.
