I enjoyed the look and feel of the place and would have liked to sample one or more of its eating establishments. Other commitments meant that I could only look. I particularly liked the portico-ed side of the main square.

The Centro Storico was not mentioned in any of our guide books, which is surprising as it is a very charming mix of ancient porticoes, crumbling towers, gateways and churches. In many respects, the sort of thing many of us hope to find in Italy....More

Small characterful and unspoilt town fairly close to Turin. Lots of old cobbled streets, three town gates and two impressive churches, and the ruins of the castle on the hill above the town. The town does cater for tourists in a low key way, which...More

Lovely old town, we were there for a wedding. It should have been out in the open in giardino delle donne, but rain tried to put a dampers on the day. But in an old centre like this, even indoors the day was great.
