What to visit

Castles

The Alto Monferrato (“High Montferrat” in English) is known for its many castles and fortifications. In this vast territory, which extends south of the province of Alessandria to the foot of the Ligurian Apennines, centuries of history remain well preserved, marveling the thousands of tourists who come to explore the region every year.

Spend a different afternoon visiting the Gavi Fort, the Casaleggio Boiro Castle or any of the region’s other attractions – find out more below: http://www.alexala.it/ita/

Days Out

A succession of beautiful hills characterises the landscape that plays home to the Golf Colline del Gavi. The vineyards and parks alternate in a carnival of colours, the home of birds of prey, amphibians, wild boars, foxes and many other species.

A wonderful habitat which offers tourists with various destinations that can be reached by foot, on horseback, by bike or by motorbike.
