Mondovì and Vicoforte (CN)

Breakfast and visit to Palazzo Fauzone + Ascent to the Dome of the Sanctuary of Vicoforte

Learn about Mondovi and Vicoforte through two iconic buildings of local history.

Palazzo Fauzone is a historic Renaissance mansion in the heart of Mondovi's historic center. After seven years of painstaking restoration, the palace is now a literary-themed boutique hotel. Inside, the charm of centuries remains intact in the spacious frescoed halls with ornate coffered ceilings, the Genoese-style terrazzo floors restored to their former glory.

The breakfast(meeting at 9 a.m., Via Vico, 8, 12084 Mondovì CN), sweet and savory, will allow you to taste typical products, carefully selected from the proposals of local farms.

The tour(9:45 a.m., duration about 1h) will lead to the discovery of the precious frescoed rooms on the main floor and the milestones of Mondovi's history.

In the second part of the morning you can learn more about the incredible history of the Vicoforte Sanctuary and its dome, the largest in the world with an elliptical plan.
Meet 11:45 a.m. at the ticket office, Charles Emanuel Square, I, 35, Vicoforte.
(Transfer from Mondovì to Vicoforte independently by own vehicle, not included in the participation fee).
