Located in the southern part of the Piedmont region, near the French border, Cuneo is a town surrounded by mountains, and a perfect base for exploring the charming neighbouring countryside. Our guide will offer a unique insight on the remains of the 12th century fortified original town, the churches, the notable monuments, and the streets in Renaissance style. Do not forget to try the meringhe and the cuneesi (chocolate and rum pralines), also appreciated by Ernest Hemingway, shop in the fine boutiques, and look for the beautiful popular festivals.
