Oltrepò is a land of intact villages, medieval castles, historic cellars and unique flavors. One of our guided tours takes us to the amazing medieval complex founded by S. Alberto di Butrio in the suggestive and wild landscape of the hills of the Upper Oltrepò Pavese. The fourteenth-century frescoes and legends related to this place are not to miss!
On request there is also the possibility of attending mass. For lunch we can not miss the stop at one of the typical restaurants where we can taste some of the local products of the Oltrepò like: porcini mushrooms, wild boar, typical and delicious cold cuts and the ancient local desserts, all accompanied by the D.O.C. local wines, the excellent reds and the fragrant whites.
After lunch we will do the guided tour of the village of Varzi which preserves the characteristics and atmosphere of the medieval era with its towers, the ancient cellars for maturing the salami, the narrow stone alleys, the castle of the nobles Malaspina. Possibility to organize tasting of cold cuts in one of the historical shops.
