Top Gear in the Langhe & Monferrato Piemonte
We love BBC Top Gear so it was great to see the Monferrato and Langhe in this week's show. The boys - Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May- drove three hot hatches from the Tuscan town of Lucca, up to Canelli in the Monferrato hills and then down to Monaco via the Langhe hills.
There were many scenes shot in the centre of Alba - looking for dogs and trying to fit as many people as they could in their cars. They filmed outside the Duomo in the centre of the town (police bicycle) and on the newly restored (to incredible ugliness) Piazza Savona.
The roads here are great and the scenery spectacular, as the program showed.
Don't over look this part of Italy if you are thinking of buying a house! We specialise in properties in the Langhe and Monferrato - all within easy reach of the Mediterranean coast!
Note: Flavio Briatore is from Piemonte. He has a house just outside of Saluzzo..
