    Torino Landscape

    We’ll explore Turin is often overlooked in favour for cosmopolitan Milan or ancient Venice, but this hidden gem is a city that rivals any in Italy. It boasts elegant tree-lined boulevards bursting with art nouveau cafes and mixes contemporary with historical to create a truly unique and chic backdrop. Turin is famous for Italy’s most iconic car, the Fiat, as well as being home to very first hotel chocolate.

    Our next included excursion will take us on a gastronomical journey through the region, enjoying the Taste of Piedmont. We’ll enjoy learning more about the truffles this area is famous for, why they’re such a delicacy and how they are hunted for by skilled dogs. Later we’ll continue sample Barolo wine, the most famous red wine of the region, before finishing the day with a chocolate tasting.

    The indulgence doesn’t stop there – make the most of you stay with a welcome drink, a complimentary bottle of wine in your room, and wine and water served with dinner!
    Why not also join us for our optional excursion to taste the spectacular Asti Spumante?
