Monferrato and surroundings

Although major historical events have left their mark on Monferrato, from the Saracens (and their treasure hidden in Ottiglio) to the handing over of Monferrato to the Savoy royal family in 1708, the former Marquisate of Monferrato is still a tourist destination largely undiscovered. Time seems to have stood still in the sleepy, historic villages perched on the lovely hills of the Monferrato. Away from the tourist strongholds of the Langhe, the Monferrato - one of the most famous Italian wine-growing regions in the world and home of the white truffle - invites connoisseurs to explore this diverse, natural  region.

Since 2014, the Monferrato has belonged to itsinfernoto theUnesco World Heritage.
