Day 1 Arrival in Piedmont.
Day 2 After breakfast, depart for Alba, the capital of Langhe, to explore its fascinating medieval nooks and crannies. Here you can sample traditional truffle-based products including olive oil infused with Alba white truffles or a black truffle spread.
Day 3 Our Piedmont tour isn’t complete without a visit to Asti, the city of art and the centre of one of the most important winemaking areas in Piedmont. There are medieval palazzos and a historic centre to explore. The city hosts important religious buildings, including its cathedral which is one of the most important gothic churches in the region. After the visit, you head out for a tour through Monferrato, where small groves of trees alternate with vineyards cresting over hilltops. During the day, you will have the opportunity to sample typical Piedmont cheeses, as well as drink a toast with a glass of fine spumante!
Day 4 Turin is undoubtedly one of the world centres for automobile design: an off-shoot of this almost century-old tradition is its design school which is always at the cutting edge of visionary automobile concepts. For a full-immersion experience into the world of luxury cars, there is nothing better than a visit to the National Automobile Museum in Turin. The tour includes a history of the evolution of the automobile, its transformation from a means of transportation to a cult object, all by way of spectacular exhibits displaying the precious pieces in the collection.
Day 5 Return trip home.
