From the Serravalle Designer Outlet to the Museo dei Campionissimi, passing from the Coppi house in Castellania: the perfect itinerary for an unforgettable weekend.
How to organize a short escape from everyday life, able to bring the whole family together? Combining two seemingly distant elements, but which can become a pleasant moment of escape: we are talking about fashion and cycling, which find in the Gavi Hills an absolutely privileged meeting place.
Here is our proposal, which unfolds over two days: we start in the morning from Castellania, a charming village that houses the birthplace of Fausto Coppi, a place of memory and affections but also a valuable collection center for documentary, iconographic material, videos, newspapers, memorabilia and curiosities (single ticket € 2.50, hours Saturday from 15 to 18.30, Sunday from 10 to 12 and from 15 to 18.30, by appointment by week): a full immersion between the relics of the Campionissimo and his most personal memories , to get to know the personality of a great sportsman.
We continue in the afternoon, with a visit to the Museum of the Campionissimi of Novi Ligure (ticket € 7, reduced € 4, times: Friday from 15 to 19, Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 19), which holds vintage bicycles and historical evidence on local and national cycling, and a walk through the streets of the picturesque old town of Novi, with its beautiful Genoese-style painted palaces.
To round off the day, do not miss a dinner of farinata at the historic local Il Banco (average price per couple for a dinner 40 euros, excluding wines), and overnight stay in nice b&b and hotel in the center (La Casa sui Tetti - double room € 72; ViaBasso11 - double room € 70; Verdi - double room € 60; night in the convent - double room € 108).
