Foodies won’t want to miss this wine and truffle-focussed trip, which village-hops through northern Italy’s Piedmont area – a wine region with plenty of gourmet credentials. You’ll start off with a 90-minute drive to a winery in Monforte d’Alba for a sampling session. The wines here are known for their velvety texture. You’ll then make the short journey to Barolo, for a guided walk through the picturesque village. It’s surrounded by sprawling vineyards, so there are plenty of photo opportunities. Afterwards, it’s time to make tracks for Alba. This terracotta-tipped town’s history stretches back to pre-Roman times, and it has the architecture to match. After a guided tour, you’ll have the chance to try the rare Tuber Magnatum Pico truffle.
