I am planning a trip to Montemagno, Italy - Monferrati Hills Area for family research. My family originated from this area and later moved to the US. I want to go visit the land of my ancestors and get a good feel of the area. I have no idea where to stay as a base location and I don’t know anything about the area as all of the old family has passed away. Where to stay? What to do? Local guides? Where to eat?
Any help is appreciated. Help me to understand my home land.
What is the best way to, bus or train? How far in miles is it?
For a day trip from Fossano by car.........Alba or Asti?? Any hints on nice short stops along the way?
we are staying outside of Asti next September. We would like to avoid renting a car and travel by taxi or local transportation to Alba for dinner on Saturday and to visit a two or three wineries. Is it possible to travel around Piedmont without a car?
I'm headed to Asti for the Palio this fall. Right now, I am planning on traveling light, as I find it is more fun to "shop" for some clothes during my trip (that not being the sole purpose!). I am wondering if there are any recommendations for clothing stores in the city, or if there are any outlets nearby. Thanks in advance!
I'm looking for some information about bicycle rentales for a days trip. We wanted to rent the bikes for teh day and maybe try and manege to see a vinyard or attend any win festival or other gastronomic event this week ! in the province of asti .
Thankyou for your time
Hi i'm interested in renting a copule of bicycel pairs for a day to go around asti or maybe on of the smaller towns near by , including if possibel a tour to a vinyard or soom other win event this up coming week .
I'm hoping to find information about high schools in Asti, Italy. My daughter, Megan High, has planned for a year to be a foreign exchange student in Italy. We chose the program, Two Worlds United, and they have been keeping us updated since February about the long process of finding a host family, visa, etc.. All of her information should have been completed by June 1, 2006.
We just found out that she will be living in Asti, Italy, but when I ask for phone numbers for the school and host family, I'm told that they don't have that information. This is starting to look like a scam and I just need a phone number for the high schools in Asti, Italy.
Now that there is doubt in my mind about this company, if they do actually pull this off and Megan does get to spend her senior year of high school in Asti, I will have to travel there when she goes, just to make sure she does have a family to live with and that she is alright.
I'll need a place to stay for a week that is reasonably priced. They haven't even applied for her visa but keep saying that everything is alright. I've learned that they have an F rating with the Better Bussiness Bureau, so it just doesn't look promising. I've paid the money and if they actually do come through, I'll be flying with her to make sure she is safe.
Any ideas on who I could contact to see if Two Worlds United has even attempted to get Megan enrolled in a high school in Asti, Italy would very much be appreciated.
