Piedmont: Truffles, Cheese & Wines
Full day

This excursion will give you the opportunity to discover the gastronomic treasures of the Langhe.
A stimulating truffle hunt with dogs, a visit to an educational Barolo vineyard with an adjoining wine cellar and a tasting of typical Piedmontese cheeses: these are the three highlights of the day trip to the Langhe. After meeting your four-legged friends and with the help of their infallible sense of smell, you will search for one of the most expensive specialities in the world, the truffle. A visit to an educational Barolo vineyard is followed by a wine cellar where, at 12.30 p.m., you will be able to taste a minimum of 3 types of wine paired with typical cheeses and other appetisers, such as salami, and, if your appetite doesn't subside, you can enjoy truffle pasta, salad and dessert. At approximately 3.30 p.m., we continue towards the Langhe, to Alba, a characteristic place known for its medieval atmosphere. In lieu of a visit to Alba, there will also be a visit to the Vicoforte Sanctuary. Return to the hotel at around 5 p.m.

Asti & Monferrato
Full day

The main town l and heart of the province is Asti with its 73,000 inhabitants. Known everywhere for its wines and cuisine, the city should be explored on foot, walking through the historical centre, which has preserved the conformation of the medieval city. The Middle Ages, a period of great wealth and power, has left wonderful traces, such as the cathedral, the collegiate church of San Secondo, the complex of San Pietro in Consavia, on the towers and above all on the houses and streets. The Baroque style of the aristocratic houses and the elegance of the 19th-century squares form a seamless connection, creating a harmonious whole with the elegant shop windows in Art Nouveau style. Asti revives its magnificent past every year with the Palio, lively and crowded in its weekly markets, rich in cultural and gastronomic events that make your stay even more enjoyable. Visit Asti along the panoramic road to Moncalvo, in the heart of the delightful and lush Monferrato hills. You will certainly not miss a wine tasting!


The city of Turin
Half day

The city is rich in monuments ranging from the Roman period (Porta Palatina, theatre) to the Baroque period, with the most important artistic development for the city up to the modern age (see the Mole Antonelliana, symbol of the city). Starting from Piazza Castello with the beautiful Royal Palace and the Guarini Chapel, you will find elegant buildings and churches everywhere in the streets of the centre with treasures of the Savoy and Piedmontese nobility: Palazzo Carignano with its façade, the buildings lined with arcades in Piazza San Carlo that inevitably attract attention. The long tree-lined avenues that end in open squares are typical of Turin, and the green areas along the river Po are particularly popular, especially the Valentino Park, once the hunting lodge of the Savoy family with its beautiful castle influenced by French architecture. There are important museums in the city, especially the Egyptian Museum (second only to the one in Cairo), the Sabauda Gallery, the National Artillery Museum, the museums dedicated to the Risorgimento, cars and cinema.
