Everybody knows Italy is home to some of the most beautiful cities in the world, the likes of Rome, Milan & Turin being the most famous, but the country has far more to offer from rural landscape to cosmopolitan cities. Asti is one such city, presenting breath-taking architecture, phenomenal views and amazing food. This northern city is famed for its wine and cheese production, as well as truffles, making it a great destination for foodies. The area is mostly hilly, meaning it offers scenic walks for the active holiday goer looking to see the natural sights of the Italian countryside. Asti's manmade sights do not disappoint either, with the gothic Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta proving particularly popular.
