Piemonte Trip

We went for an eight day trip in Piemonte to see the area, meet Mark’s family (3 different groups), and do some family research. We drove up from Florence. It wasn’t a bad drive, a couple of hours each way. Overall, we drove about 1,000 miles in the eight days. (Yikes on gas costs and toll charges though.)

We were based in Dogliani for all 7 nights at Poderi Einaudi. From there we visited many towns for pleasure and for research purposes including Ceva, Cherasco, Magliano Apli, Carru, Alba, Bra, Murazzano, Villanova Mondovì, Saluzzo, and Barolo. We basically concentrated on the Roero – Langhe region (lower Piemonte).

The weather? A little fog, but generally bright, sunny days. The ground had snow on it but the roads were clear. So in sort, pretty nice weather.
