The Good Life

Due settimane di vacanza in the land of Barolo and Barbaresco, the Fiat 500 and famous Ferrero Rocher! In the northwestern corner of the country, Piedmont awaits you with its hills, vales and numerous vineyards, set against the majestic Alps. Known for its delectable white truffles and exquisite cheeses, this gourmet region is also the home of nougat and Moscato d’Asti. To cultivate your mind, admire the architecture of the stopover towns, visit the museums or the Mole Antonelliana in Turin, city of art and history, and stroll about its boutiques and cafés under the porticos... Talk about the good life!
