The Barolo Express launches in spring for wine and food lovers to travel to and from the 2015 Milan Expo and the towns and vineyard-covered hillsides of UNESCO-named Langhe-Roero and Monferrato.
The “classy transfer service” is inspired by the vintage vibe of the famed Orient Express, and promises voyagers an elegant ride to discover the wineries and taste culinary delights of the Langhe, Roero, and Monferrato with guided tours. This land of wonders is just an hour away from Milan, where the 2015 Expo will be held, and is the perfect way to usher in international tourists; especially those who want to explore, but do not want to drive.
