Cities and Towns in Piemonte

Alessandria was born from the union of four ancient villages: Borgoglio, Rovereto, Gamondio and Marengo. It's name was given in honor of Pope Alessandrio III. In the past Alessandria has been a military center of great importance, and to this very day theCittadella is still a head quarters of the armed forces.

The historic center is truly enchanting, with its streets all enclosed within the ancient city walls. Whilst in Alessandria one can visit the Cathedral of St Pietro, situated in Piazza Giovanni XXIII; the Church of St Maria di Castello; Palazzo Callori; The Science Museum and Planetarium, and the Gambarina Ethnographic Museum in which one finds articles from the Casa del Lavoro.
In the immediate vicinity, at Spinetta Marengo, visitors can see the Battle of the Marengo Museum, with Napoleonic antiques and the representation of one of Napoleon's most important battles.

Client Testimonials

As a travel agent, but also a traveler to Italy, thee is no other company I would recommend than the Italy Vacation Specialists. Not only do they really care about what they are doing, they also really know Italy and try to educate many people about ways they can best see the country and not fall into tourist traps.

I have been on 4 trips with the IVS team, firstly when they did my first 2 trips for me and then when I went on their Fam trips for Travel Agents which are educational trips for agents. Nobody does Italy like the IVS team and what I have learned is you can actually save a lot of money by working with this company.
