Page 1 of 23: Itinerary

I have so far visited 10 regions in Italy. This year, Piemonte became my inspiration, my 11th region. Because I knew little about Piemonte, I started by doing some general research about the area. I found that there was not that much out there. Thanks to the wonderful community of Slow Travel, I was able to get more information than any travel book could ever provide. I also was glued to the Torino Winter Olympic coverage. I knew I wanted to spend some time in Torino, but where else to visit? I thought about Asti and Alba, and then Acqui, but in the end I chose Saluzzo. I was warned by many that I simply must rent a car for this leg of my trip, but I have absolutely no sense of direction and get lost coming out of a store in a mall and so with the help of the Trenitalia website, I figured out a route that would work.

My itinerary:

  • Depart Honolulu June 12/arrive Milano June 14
  • Bergamo (June 14-15) - Hotel Agnello d’Oro
  • Coccaglio with Katia (June 16-18)
  • Venice (June 19-22) - Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo, S. Croce
  • Empoli with Irene & Francesco (June23-25)
  • Lerici (June 26-29) - Doria Park Hotel
  • Saluzzo (June 30 & July 1-3) - Hotel Antico Podere Propano
  • Torino (June 4-8) - Hotel Victoria
  • Airport Hotel (June 9) - Hotel Villa Malpensa
  • Depart Milano July 10/arrive Honolulu June 10
