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.
If you want to see more of Italy, and who could blame you, then you can hire a car and visit the likes of Milan, which is just 85 minutes from Asti. You'd be forgiven for only knowing Milan as the fashion capital of the world, but look closer and you'll see that it has a lot more to offer tourists.
As an alternative to the modern fashion scene you can visit more than 55 museums, ranging from the Alfa Romeo museum to "Leonardo da Vinci" National Science and Technology Museum. Other attractions include the various stunning botanical gardens and the intricately curated Wow Spazio Fumetto comic museum.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
