Enogastronomia e Paesaggio



Proposing this tour, CUBE offers to the guests the possibility to appreciate and to know the charming hills of Gavi area in the Alto Monferrato travelling till Liguria Region and arriving in two of the most fascinating places in Italy: Portofino and the Cinque Terre. The typical landscape of Alto Monferrato is composed by a succession of dazzling green hills, crossed by numerous rivers and constellate by villages and castles with remparts where time seems not be stopped. Portofino, enchanting small village situated inside a breath-taking bay, is, without a doubt,  one of the most seducing maritime villages of Mediterranean area.

Famous during the sixties for the presence of actors, rich aristocrats, fashion and show business stars, Portofino became over the years a destination requested by tourists looking for complete relax, peace and quiet and high standing services. Here it will be possible enjoy a dinner by candle light at the well-known "piazzetta", go shopping in the refined boutiques proposing the most important fashion's labels, organize a romantic boat ride to discover the San Fruttuoso and Camogli Abbeys. Few kilometers divide the luxury and the exclusiveness of Portofino from the extraordinary beauty of the Cinque Terre's villages, since 1997 declared World Heritage by UNESCO. Five villages builted upon spurs that overlook on small creeks along a sea indigo-couloured, where the secular man work transformed this rugged territory accessible with difficulty in a great beauty landscape. These are the Cinque Terre.  Small harbours where the maritime life is still genuine, rows of vines grow on a terrace land, dry stone walls, small creeks, fortifications, old inns where to taste the well-known ligurian cooking based on fresh fish and other delights as the famous “pesto alla genovese" sauce, caves and enchanting small beaches, all these things will be at disposal of the traveller who will decide to discover this land or by boat ride or by foot enjoying a romantic walk along the renowned “Via dell’Amore” (Love Trail) that link together the villages of Manarola and Riomaggiore. Breathing an unique and genuineness air the visitors will be surprised by the five maritime villages, their shrines and the typical ligurian coloured houses that are builded as tower-houses, developed in height on three or four floors, terraced and connected one to another.
