Travel advisor in Piedmont

Tour operator, Tour Manager and Tour Guide, 14 years local

This is the area where I was born and where I currently live. Barolo is one of the small villages near the towns of Alba and Asti where some of the most renowned wines of Piedmont are produced. Whether your are coming to this region to enjoy off-the-beaten track wineries or to ride mountain bikes or to step inside a private kitchen of a local host to learn traditional recipes, I'll be happy to help you find the right fit for you. The breathtaking countryside became a UNESCO World Heritage site and it can explored either with private local drivers and tour guides or on your own with the use of itineraries that I have recorded on an app. Truffle hunting in real truffle wood, exceptional dining (both traditional and Michelin-star), wine tasting on the rooftop of a medieval tower, cheese tasting with a cheese refiner are just some of the experiences available.
