TOUR MIDDLE AGES, NATURE, COMPANY MUSEUMS
Biella and the Middle Ages recurring in this land,
nature on display in one of the most scenic parks,
the story of local beer and cheese in a museum.
3 days/2 nights
Arrive in Biella with your own cars for a day of Medieval History: the Ricetto di Candelo, perfectly preserved and identified as one of the “Most beautiful Italian Village”.
Inside the Ricetto you will surely find a restaurant to enjoy lunch in the village streets (not included).
In the afternoon, check-in at the Consorzio Biella Accoglie hotel of your choice. Dinner and overnight stay.
After breakfast, departure to discover the history and legacy of the founder of one of the world's best-known fashion textile brands: Oasi Zegna.
After leaving behind the town of Trivero and continuing on a panoramic road, you will then be accompanied by a certified hiking guide, and visit a magical place, the Bosco del Sorriso. This is a ring-route among fir, beech and birch trees, a true experiential walk where you will be embraced by the fragrances and sounds of unspoilt nature. The same panoramic road will then take you to Oasi Zegna, a natural park immersed in the nature of this valley, an ideal place for lunch in one of its restaurants.
After returning to Biella, you will reach the most historic part of the city, Biella Piazzo. Walking under the arcades and along the streets of the village, you will discover ancient buildings of famous Biella families who have made, not only the city’s history, but during the Risorgimento, the Italian History itself. In the Ferrero, La Marmora and Gromo Losa palaces, it will be possible to make visits to our scheduled exhibitions. At the end, dinner at the characteristic Library-Restaurant La Civetta and return to the hotel for overnight stay.
After breakfast, guided tour to ME/BO, the Museum of the two great local beer and cheese producers, Birrificio Menabrea and Botalla Formaggi. You will be lead through the exhibition path, between the two production sites, and learn stories about their history, their families, their production methods, and their products. In the nearby Experience area, you will immerse yourself in the world of the two producers, through a tasting lunch, between unique aromas and flavours.
