Your first stop will be the charming city of Asti. Here you will have free time to visit the town on your own.
The rich past of Asti is shown in its beautiful city centre, where it is still possible to admire part of the ancient Roman city walls and many gorgeous medieval palaces and merchants houses. The town is also called “the city of 100 towers” because during the medieval period the richest families of the city built many stunning monumental towers. Discovering the city it is also possible to visit several stunning churches. We suggest to visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, a 13th century Romanesque-Gothic beautiful church, and the Collegiata di San Secondo dedicated to Secundus of Asti the town’s patron saint.
After your tour we highly recommend to try one of the many delicious restaurants of the city! Remember that Asti is a paradise for the truffle lovers and that in this area are produced some of the best Italian red wines and the delicious Asti Spumante, a sparkling sweet white wine made only with muscat grape!

Your next stop will be the lovely town of Canelli. Here you will have some free time to visit this beautiful village on your own. Wonder around the delightful city centre, explore the enchanting medieval streets enjoying the view of the palaces and little churches!
Canelli is mostly known for its vineyards; in fact it is believed that it was in this area that the famous Asti Spumante was born! An interesting fact to know about the town is that many of the white wines produced in the area are aged in Canelli’s underground cellars! Every years millions of bottles ferment in these unique cellars. Their extension is today of about 13 kilometres under the city!
