Alessandria

Alessandria

Explore Italy

Midway between Milan, Genoa and Turin, Alessandria makes a great base for exploring Piedmont. At its centre is the famous Cittadella, the largest fortification of its kind in Europe, built in the 18th century as a defensive garrison, and a handful of beautiful plazas and places. Many of the finest religious monuments are a short distance outside the city, including the Abbey of Rivalta Scrivia and the sanctuary of Sacro Monte di Crea. Relaxation and recuperation come in the form of trips to the thermal town of Acqui Terme, hikes in the Monferrato hills, or bird-spotting in Parco Fluviale del Po Tratto Vercellese-Alessandrino.
