Pesto & Truffles: the gastronomic excellence of Piedmont and Liguria

01/03/2021 - 31/12/2021


Business description

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 syngeries, 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.
