and cooking

There are 356 starred restaurants in Italy, 41 in Piedmont alone and 63 in Lombardy; in all of them it is possible, with the help of Decathlon professionals, to plan a day or a weekend around the lunch in the chosen restaurant.

Whether it’s Relais San Maurizio, Villa Greppi or L’Albereta, for many years Gualtiero Marchesi’s Buen Retiro, it doesn’t matter: they are all enchanting places that deserve a stopover, organized in a precise way to make a birthday or an anniversary even more magical and exciting. But it is not only the starred chefs who make the history of Italian cuisine, there are plenty of extraordinary places for less high-sounding but delicious stops. It is also possible to organize cooking classes, wine or spirits tastings, show cooking and why not, also visits to the most important companies in the area such as Martini with its course on Mixtology, the historic factory of Pastiglie Leone, Ferrero in Alba or Fontanafredda with the cellars and homes of Rosa Vercellana.
