Full description
This 1-day tour takes you on a discovery of Canavese, the borderland at the foot of the Alps of the Piedmont region, a natural gateway between the Italian peninsula and Europe. This region was a crossroad for armies, merchants, and pilgrims tracing the routes of the Via Salaria and Via Francigena through the valley of Mont Blanc and Graie Alps reaching Turin, the capital of the Savoy Reign and the first Italian capital. This land of lakes, hills, forests, and castles is protected by the Serra Morenica, one of the largest morainic hills in the world. Here the vineyards enjoy the sweetness of its microclimate, producing excellent wines including the Carema Nebbiolo and the Caluso Erbaluce. The Canavese cuisine has distinct flavors including cured meats and Alpine pasture cheeses, “Capònet” rolls of savoy cabbage with meat, stuffed onions with amaretto, “Ajucche” wild herb soup served with bread, and “Bagna Caòda”; the distinguished anchovy sauce served as a dip for crudités. All of this is just a taste of what awaits you on this tour. Detailed Itinerary: Noon: Guided tour in one of the castles of the Canavese region. According to seasonal availability and the clients' preferences, the options are the Castello di Agliè or the Castello di Masino. Then enjoy lunch in a local restaurant with a fixed menu and wine included. Afternoon: Guided tour of the city of Ivrea followed by wine degustation in a local winery.

Absolutely wonderful time. Learned a lot about the history of the region. Wine tasting was phenomenal and in a local co-op. Always nice to support local businesses providing great wine!
