A day by Minibus in Ivrea and Valle d'Aosta

The majestic Fort of Bard, a wine tasting in the mountains, the views of the Col de Joux and then the beautiful Ivrea, UNESCO heritage site with its industrial past and the incomparable Torta 900 cake

€ 99

The Valle d'Aosta is the smallest region of Italy, and is located in the heart of the Alps, where Europe’s highest mountains are located: in fact it is practically "surrounded" by Mont Blanc (which with its 4,810 meters is the highest mountain in Europe), by the Matterhorn, by Monte Rosa and the Gran Paradiso.

At the center of its main valley, crossed by the Dora Baltea river, is Aosta, and all around many valleys and roads that climb the sides of the mountains open up to get to small villages immersed in fairytale landscapes.

Here we will spend a day among mountain landscapes going up to the Col de Joux, we will taste wines and listen to the story of a farm with great character, Pianta Grossa, we will have a picnic at the majestic Bard Fort, nemesis of Napoleon who struggled a lot to overcome this fortress in his descent of conquest towards Turin. 

We will then meet again the Dora Baltea river in Ivrea, the beautiful city of the Red Towers, recently included in the Unesco Heritage as a 20th Century Industrial City for the extraordinary entrepreneurial, social and human history of the Olivetti family and famous for the Battle of Oranges in the characteristic Carnival. Right on the Dora Baltea riverbank we will stop for a slice of '900 cake from the secret recipe in the historic Pasticceria Balla, before returning to Turin in the late afternoon.

Alessandro

Alessandro is a sportsman and a team player: soccer, tennis, beach volley, baseball, basketball, even poker, if there is a game you'll find him there. Self-made guitarist, fearless snowboarder, his manners are sweet and his humour will charm you. The last to go to sleep, the first to wake up in the morning to take his dog for a walk and get ready, perfectly groomed. He drives smoothly and knows every road in our beautiful Piemonte.

Never without: a ball to play with
