What you should visit in

TURIN ON YOUR VESPA

Let’s set out from the historic centre with two of the most important museums in the city: the Cinema Museum in the Mole Antonelliana a symbolic monument of Turin and the Egyptian Museum. The latter is second in the world after Cairo for the collections and findings it hosts. 

You can travel around the centre of Turin comfortably on your Vespa:  choose your favourite places to visit and then stop, visit them and set off again.  Experience the Savoy capital by moving from one square to another from Piazza Vittorio with its unique view of the hill with its monuments such as the Villa della Regina up to the Basilica of Superga

Continue on to Piazza Castello with Palazzo Madama, the Royal Castle, the Duomo and the Chapel of the Holy Shroud, the Royal District and its museums up to Piazza San Carlo the living room of the city. 

Turin will regale you with breathtaking views with its period buildings bursting with history interspersed with large squares.  These places are full of people not only during the day but above all in the evenings due to their bars ready to serve you with Vermouth based cocktails and glasses of excellent Piedmont wine. 

From the squares to the parks, your Vespa tour will take you to the Medieval Village (Borgo Medievale) and to the Valentino Park. Here you travel along the Po River that connects one part of the city to the other and let’s you discover once again the Savoy residences, such as Venaria Palace, a diamond that shines at the gates of Turin and the Stupinigi Hunting Lodge.

To get the maximum when discovering Turin, go short distances on your Vespa and explore it step by step.

Head to the Langhe to savour Piedmont on your Vespa

During your tour in Vespa in the Langhe, you will come across castles and old towns and long roads hidden in the vineyards. Your route will lead you to one of the leading food and wine choices in the world where two impressive hosts are waiting to greet you: Barolo and truffles

Langhe, Roero and Monferrato are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  And in just under an hour from Turin, it is in these places that beats the heart of Piedmont food and wine. In addition to the hundreds of excellent wine companies scattered throughout this area you will be welcomed by typical local products such as hazelnuts, cheeses and chocolate

You can comfortably cover the distances in this area on your Vespa and within a 10 to 15 kilometre radius you can move from Barolo to Grinzane Cavour. Get to know the area better by visiting the Wine Museum in the Barolo Castle where the Wine of Kings and the King of Wines was born in 1800. 

Then continue down to the Towers of Barbaresco and discover other towns such as Monforte and La Morra: we are now on the roads and in the lands of the wines. 

Alternatively, you can go further and reach Mango in order to visit the Moscato Regional Wine shop passing through Serralunga, Roddi and Novello. A t this point, push yourself on to Alba and Canelli and see their Underground Cathedrals

Whilst taking in postcard style landscapes almost reminiscent of a master photographer’s album, it’s a good idea to bring your Vespa to a halt and admire the area before deciding where to imbibe a glass of good wine

The leading producers here are: Ceretto, Marrone, Ratti, Moccagatta, Elio Altare, Marchesi di Barolo, Damilano, Borgogno, Fontanafredda, Cogno, Saracco, Oddero, Cordero di Montezemolo, Marengo, Vayra, Castello di Neive, Sottimano, Produttori di Barbaresco, Cantina del Glicine, Ca’ del Baio and Fenocchio. The number is so vast, we could go on forever.

In Langa, there is a vast amount of wine as well as numerous cheeses such as Bra:  in the Giolito company guided tours are organised so that you can get to know the cheeses better and taste them. 

Other protagonists in the area are the hazelnuts such as those from Alta Langa from the Cascina Azii Feisoglio and Cascina Raflaz. 

Finally, the prestigious excellence of the Langhe manifests itself in the white truffle. Every year in Alba there is fair that attracts thousands of visitors to the city and the best restaurants there.
