Unesco Heritage

Unique and striking landscapes, pure beauty, dream-like surroundings which are coloured differently according to the season, a harmony of foods, wines and unforgettable perfumes.  All this describes the Piedmont hills which have already become a Unesco World Heritage site.  An area of 769,386 hectares which is divided between the hills at the foot of the Alps and the central part of the region between the Po, Dora Baltea and Stura rivers.  A land of great wines: Nebbiolo, Barolo, Barbaresco, Moscato, Barbera; great foods: truffles, cured hams, cheese, vegetables, select meats.  Not only physical lands but also of the mind, on a human dimension, pervaded by a thousand-year-old tradition in which to relax and enjoy good food.
Between Langhe and Roero, Monferrato offers numerous itineraries, whatever the season, for the enthusiastic and inquiring tourist: from Alfieri to Baroque, from medieval to Roman, from wine and food to folklore.

Its territory, dominated by vineyards, medieval castles and churches from the 11th century, extends from the plains of the Apennines and allows you to discover natural environments like the charming Capanne di Marcarolo Park, and many culinary delights.  Travelling through the hills you come across small villages and interesting places, some very popular not only for their historic and artistic heritage.  Acqui Terme is an example of this, a modern town already known in Roman times for its therapeutic water springs at a temperature of 75°.  History and traditions can be experienced thanks to the many re-enactments held throughout the year, including the Palio and the Festival of Festivals in Asti, the Barrel Race of Nizza Monferrato, and the Siege of Canelli. It is, therefore, easy to immerse oneself into this breathtaking landscape, where art blends with the gentle slopes coloured with intoxicating music, let yourself go and feel at home.
