    • Then, we will walk through the streets to reach the Palace of Nobles and listen to the stories of Vittorio Alfieri, who was born in Asti. 
    • While walking through the streets, we will reach the town's Cathedral, "Our Lady of the Assumption", a huge building made from bricks and sandstone. Get to know the meaning of the word 'Cathedral' while admiring the beautiful Gothic building. And take a glimpse of the beautiful interiors while strolling around the Cathedral. All the walls and ceilings are handpainted, and many of the paintings depict the life of Jesus.

    • And later, we will say our final goodbyes at Vittorio Square, where Asti's historic horse race, "Palio d'Asti", happens every year in September. Around 20-21 horses take part in the race each year, and the region is divided into districts. Also, the roads are covered with dirt to make the track for racing. Finally, we will end our tour with a panoramic view of the Square.
