Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Famed for its truffles, and with town names like Barolo and Barbaresco, it’s easy to understand why Piemonte is a gourmand’s paradise. In fact, many argue that the region produces the best food in all of Italy. As with most places whose livelihood is so closely tied to the land, the people here are down-to-earth (pardon the pun), and the countryside as beautiful as it is bountiful. Your journey through the gentle hills and peaceful river valleys of the Roero, Langhe and Monferrato will feature medieval towns, endless vineyards, and sweeping vistas.Trip designed by Travel Expert Marya Valli TRIP DETAILS per person from $5,495 USD
