We will be in the Piedmont staying near Monferrato in the first week of August (myself, my husband and our two foodie children).
There is a glut of information on the boards and this is our first visit to the region. I'm trying to narrow down our choices based on where will be each day. We are planning to do a bigger lunch and a light dinner based on the driving between areas. Would love 'hounds input on our proposed five day itinerary:
Day One - settle in; dinner around Monferatto - Osteria L'Ermite in nearby Castell'Alfero?
Day Two - Torino - breakfast/bicerin at Caffe Al Bicerin; lunch at Consorzio; go to Juventus stadium in the afternoon
Day Three - guided wine tour
Day Four - Alba- La Libera for lunch or worth driving to La Torre in Cherasco?
Day Five - Asti - Trattoria I Bologna or venture to Da Bardon in San Marzano Oliveta?
Also, any other ideas for light, tasty dinners near/on the way back to Monferrato?
Thank so much for making our trip yummy and manageable in terms of travel!
