The tourist proposals of ViA(e)
From #storiesofbeauty to experiences
ViA(e) is a way of understanding the discovery of a vast territory, which cannot be enclosed within precise territorial borders. The ancient Roman streets become a cue to talk about the facts, people and curiosities of those places connected by ancient roads: streets that unite and intertwine in synergies, officially tracked streets and streets travelled by habit, convenience or even because less visible, but, in any case, movements of people, goods and words spoken, often, in different languages.
A “sweet” and “slow” way to tell about places but also tangible tourist proposals to experience them in person, through the experiences we can offer thanks to the professionalism of our operators.
Discovering Langhe Astigiana and the territory of Albenga discovering two agriturismi that have made organic products their distinctive trademark.
- Check in to an Organic Agriturismo, located in the area of Monferrato, in Cessole. It offers harmony, good food and outdoor life in close contact with nature in a warm and comfortable atmosphere.
- Free afternoon to discover the most fascinating places of the area. We recommend a visit to the Church of Santa Maria del Castello in Cessole. It is actually composed of 2 churches, one on top of the other. An alternative is the Giulio Monteverde Plaster Cast Gallery in Bistagno, about fifteen kilometres away. A fascinating museum preserves original plaster casts belonging to the artist who worked in Liguria and whose original sculptures can be visited, for example, at the monumental cemetery of Staglieno.
- Return to agriturismo and visit the in-house winery to discover what lies behind the world of organic viticulture.
- At the end of the visit, guided tasting of the wines produced.

- The morning begins with a guided walk to discover the herbs and flowers of the area. At the end of the route, stop off at a historical herbalist shop where you can find the most varied types of ancient herbs and natural remedies and where an aromatic and beneficial bitter was invented which has become a true elixir of typical herbs of the Piedmontese hills.
- At the end, a wild light lunch in agriturismo based on the herbs picked during the walk.
- In the afternoon, facial skin care workshop: all phases of skin care, from cleansing to final moisturising, based on natural ingredients.
