Day 1 After your morning arrival into Milan's Malpensa airport, you'll be met and taken to your hotel in Biella, a city rich in architecture, art and archaeology. An afternoon walking tour of Biella will be followed by dinner in a lively restaurant located in the Medieval village of Piazzo. (D)
Day 2 This morning we travel to the village of Roppolo to visit a castle on the hills overlooking Lake Viverone and to visit its ''Serra'' wine cellar for a tasting of Piemonte's sparkling wines and grappa. We then continue to Ricetto di Candelo, a Medieval fortified village built between the 13th and 14th centuries to protect food supplies, as well as the farmers' possessions in moments of extreme danger.
