How to Reach - Where to Stay
Wintech Italia is in Piacenza, Italy, an ancient town founded by the romans and located in northern Italy on the river Po, about 40 miles south of Milan. Some of the most famous Italian towns including Florence and Venice are about 3 hours away by train or car, but even Piacenza is worth a visit (as you can see in these pictures I took in the main square) for people coming from abroad or living in Italy.
Wintech Italia offices are located in downtown Piacenza, in Via Castello 65, on the border of the no-traffic zone and in an area where parking is hard. Luckily enough there is a huge parking lot nearby. The offices are at the ground floor of an old building, in a quiet area, at walking distance from the town center.
How to Get to Piacenza
By Plane: The nearest airport is Milan Linate, but Milan Malpensa is an alternative. From both airports, you can get to Milan by train or bus, and from there get a train towards Bologna or Rome, and stop by in Piacenza. Check the Italian railway company site for more details. Getting a taxi form the airport to Piacenza is going to be very expensive, and we have no shuttle bus services in Italy. Better to rent a car, if you are ready for fast speed! Feel free to ask Marco for more details.
By car: Piacenza is located at the crossing of two mayor Italian highways, the A1 going from Milan towards Rome, and A21 crossing from Turin towards the east.
By train: There are direct trains going to Piacenza from Milan, Turin, Bologna, Rome, Genova. See the Italian railway company site for more details.
How to Get to the Office
Get out of the highway A21 (Torino-Piacenza-Brescia) at the Piacenza Ovest (West) exit.
Coming from Highway A1 (Milano-Bologna) exit in Piacenza Sud (South), and follow directions for Piacenza Ovest, direction Torino.

Train and Public Transportation
If you arrive by train, you can use bus number 1 and 6 (getting off in Piazza Borgo and following by foot along Via Castello) or bus number 2 and 3 (getting off at the first stop of Via Taverna, then walk to the parallel Via Castello). Numbers have changed recently, better ask a bus driver at the station.
If you plan attending a class and spending the nights in Piacenza, consider booking your hotel in advance. Here are a few suggested hotels, with approximate prices (and links to the respective web sites). When booking keep in mind that Piacenza is not a large town: you can walk across downtown in 20 minutes, and cross the town by car in about 15 minutes, even with heavy traffic. For more info the Tourist Office has the number 0523/329324.
