For food and wine lovers this is certainly one of the areas of excellence, the ideal place to relax and enjoy nature, art and especially good wine and good food.
  • Arrival in Alba, the capital of the Langhe and the International White Truffle Fair. Guided tour of the city, which has strong historical roots, thanks mainly to its gastronomic history: truffles with its shops, pastry shop, wine with its wine bars that are a corollary to a historic center still intimately in medieval style.

  • The excursion continues towards Monforte d’Alba through a panoramic tour to arrive at the farmhouse surrounded by the Piedmontese countryside, the Torricella, a historic wine-producing farmhouse located in the magnificent hilly territory of the Langhe.

In the last room a humid wall, a lung useful for the aging of the product, emits heat and smells easily perceptible.

    The flooring is regular with joints of less than 2 mm (terracotta); the net span of the door is 95 cm; the internal paths are free of architectural barriers and obstacles; there is an internal door between different rooms 83 cm wide; to reach the ageing room there is a 13 m long descent with a slope of less than 8%.

  • At the end of the visit tasting of the wines of production
  • Return to Turin
  • Dinner at the hotel

Day 4Venaria

  • Breakfast at the hotel
  • Transfer to Venaria for a guided tour of the Royal Palace – The “little Versailles”, this is how the Venaria Reale complex is known, an environmental-architectural unicum of extraordinary charm brought to the ancient splendours by a grandiose restoration. A splendid ensemble of exceptional proportions on which the greatest architects of the Baroque era worked, restored to its former glory with its scenic gardens.

    The main entrance from Piazza della Repubblica can be used independently by customers in wheelchairs. The Royal Palace and the exhibition spaces intended for temporary exhibitions (Scuderie Juvarriane and Sale delle Arti dei Piani Alti) allow visitors in wheelchairs to use them easily and independently. The passage from the basement to the first floor is possible through the use of the lift located after room 14. For the exit from the structure it is possible to use the dedicated lift located at the exit of the Chapel of Sant’Uberto on the right or, requiring the help of the custody staff, you can exit directly on Piazza della Repubblica from the Chapel of Sant’Uberto by crossing the small threshold at the entrance. Access to the Gardens by wheelchair users is possible from Viale Carlo Emanuele II and Via Don Sapino through flat, obstacle-free paths with gravel bottoms. The main entrance to the Clock Tower can be reached by crossing the Court of Honour and skirting the Reggia di Diana on the right. For access from via Castellamonte it is necessary to request the intervention of the custody staff for the opening of the gate located on the ramp at the corner with Piazza della Repubblica. The Gardens are partially accessible to visitors in wheelchairs: at present the Gran Parterre Juvarriano and the Giardino delle Sculture Fluide are accessible with the possibility of using electric scooters available to the public with motor difficulties and fatigue problems. Work is currently underway to arrange the external routes and improve accesses.

  • Free time for lunch
  • Back in Turin and afternoon available.
  • Dinner at the hotel
  • Overnight

Day 5Torino (National Museum of the Cinema)

  • Breakfast at the hotel Morning dedicated to visiting the National Cinema Museum, one of the most important museums in the world. Hosted inside the Mole Antonelliana, a monument symbol of Turin, the Museum spirals upwards, on several exhibition levels, creating a spectacular presentation of its extraordinary collections and retracing the history of cinema from its origins to the present day, in a fascinating interactive itinerary.

    The access to the museum has a threshold in addition to an internal flight of stairs, approached by handrails, to go down to the reception floor, where you will find the ticket office, refreshment services and the meeting space for guided tours. However, the reception desk is too high to allow for easy use by people with reduced mobility, and there are accessible toilets near the ticket office. Wheelchair users are allowed access via a secondary access. The dedicated path winds through the courtyard, usually closed, from which you can reach one of the two elevators that allow you to reach all the floors of the building. The elevators can only be used by groups or individuals with specific needs, replacing the stairs always flanked by handrails, in the presence of the personnel in charge of the service. The visit path of the floor dedicated to the Archaeology of cinema is wide enough for the movement of wheelchairs and has seats evenly distributed, in addition to those functional to the exhibition; these have a reclining seat to allow the vision of the equipment that propose the first systems of reproduction of images and animations and are equipped with eyepieces that can be oriented to the visitor’s needs. The showcases and interactive activities are partly accessible and usable by everyone because they are placed in showcases that do not have a hollow space below the exhibition floor for easy access. The floor of the “Temple Hall” is accessible throughout the large central vaulted space, from where you can enjoy the projection of film sequences cyclically re-proposed, while the 10 side “chapels” are largely inaccessible because they have steps flanked by handrails or reduced spaces to allow the movement of wheelchairs, except one near the second lift.

  • Free time for lunch
  • Afternoon at your disposal
  • Dinner at the hotel
  • Overnight

Day 6Castagnole Monferrato

  • Breakfast at the hotel and departure to Monferrato which appears as a “sea of hills” sweet or steep, clothed with woods and vineyards as far as the eye can see. The landscape of Monferrato presents itself to the visitor as a succession of paintings, written on imaginary canvases by many different authors, as many as there are men who over the centuries have gradually modified it, carved into the earth, between the rows of vines, ploughed fields, orchards, villages scattered on the hills and often overlooked by a castle.
    In addition to being a World Heritage Site since 2014, it has been recognised as a European Community of Sport 2017. Arrival in Castagnole Monferrato at a small family-run winery in the area producing excellent Ruché wine that comes from an indigenous grape variety typical of the area. The methods used by the family are a mix of tradition and innovation.
    Guided tour of the cellar with tasting of wines of production in combination with cold cuts and cheeses

    Presence of gravel in the courtyard, but possibility of approaching the front door by bus. Access to the cellar through a concrete ramp. Large spaces inside the cellar for guided tours and tastings in the same rooms thanks to the setting up of tables that can be used by wheelchair users. Spacious toilets, but without supports for vase transfer.

  • At the end of the visit transfer to Canelli for free lunch…
  • Dinner in an accessible restaurant close to the hotel
  • In the afternoon guided tour and tasting at an elegant and historic distillery that produces grappa since 1866.
