Leaving from the the port of Savona in Genoa, a drive of about one hour and 45 minutes will take you from Genoa into the heart of Langhe.

During your visit, your driver will suggest a local cellar where you can participate in a guided tour: learn, see, and taste the wine. This is a unique opportunity to find out about grape harvesting, bottling, and aging one of Italy's definitive wines.
After you have purchaed lunch, the afternoon will see a visit to La Morra, a charming medieval city with hamlets that fan out into the countryside. In Piazza Castello, there is a baroque belltower with panoramic viewpoint of the Langhe, extending to the Alps, with the country's treed hills, rows of vineyards combed into the hills, roads weaving between them.
