Italian Tour: The Pleasure of Driving a Lamborghini Across Amazing Piedmont Landscape
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 21 September 2015
After the great success of the Tuscany Tour, this year a new location hosted a select group of enthusiasts of the historic Italian super sports car brand. The Italian Tour was back on the road travelling along the most beautiful byways of the Piedmont among the hills and the lush vineyards right in their prime in the month of September. As always, the pleasure of driving a Lamborghini through beautiful scenery is combined with a luxurious experience of the Italian lifestyle.
Two separate tours through Piedmont and the Langhe area took place on consecutive weekends in September. The first tour started on Friday, September 4 and ended on Monday, September 7. The second began on Friday, September 11 and concluded on Monday, September 14.
Starting from the Boscareto Resort & Spa in Serralunga d'Alba, which offers a fusion of comfort, beauty, culture and the finest cuisine, Lamborghini enthusiasts left for Turin on an extended day drive to discover the beautiful Piedmont region through its Langhe area. After a stop at the famous 18th century Basilica of Superga, they arrived at the Reggia di Venaria Reale, an enormous Baroque palace surrounded by 60 hectares of gardens that extend to the historic centre of Venaria and to the Parco La Mandria, a UNESCO World Heritage site, ending the day at the Fontanafredda winery estate, with dinner at its famous Guido restaurant.
The next day, the route led through the splendid scenery of Monferrato and a visit to the historical “underground cathedrals” in Canelli, which wind for kilometres beneath the historic town, providing the perfect habitat for producing Spumante. The convoy then travelled on a combination of state roads and highways to reach Parma, another exclusive location with an exquisite culinary tradition. Today, Parma still has the appearance of the small town it was for a very long time. The city has a special feeling you can sense while walking its streets and observing its elegant lifestyle. In the 16th century, it became the capital of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza, which was ruled by the Farnese family. During this time, important landmarks were erected and famous painting schools were founded.
The prestigious vintage cars and the modern technological jewels, with Huracán LP 610-4 as the protagonist, arrived at the destination of the historic headquarters of Automobili Lamborghini, thus concluding the splendid itinerary dedicated to the best of Italian lifestyle.
