Planning trip to Piedmont area next fall during month of Sept. My husband and I really want to attend the Palio in Asti. Apartments "i Tre Torchi" in Mombercelli look lovely online, and are very reasonably priced. Has anyone stayed there? We are a retired couple who love to tour the countryside, eat good food (basic home cooking) and visit small villages, beautiful churches, drink a little wine. Plan to spend a few days in Torino before going to countryside, and probably a few on Lake Maggiore at end of trip before departing from Malpensa. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Also, thanks to all for previous assistance. This is a great forum and so helpful when planning a vacation.
