The city is an out-and-out open-air museum and its centre is rich in wine bars and shops that sell outstanding wines and products. The tour continues to Alice Bel Colle, a small village surrounded by vineyards and a panoramic terrace to admire the surrounding landscape. The discovery of local products continues to Morsasco, in an agriturismo that will demonstrate the work related to the land, wine and cuisine.Price
