The medieval village
One of the most beautiful villages in Italy, with a historic center with a medieval structure rich in history and traditions, wants to show the best of itself by transforming itself into a timeless reality. Thanks to the collaboration of local associations and historical groups, the village will come alive with flag-wavers, costumed figures, medieval music and dances. The squares are transformed into the beating heart of life by hosting original settings to try flavors of the past. A path that culminates at Pian Castello with the possibility of climbing the Medieval Clock Tower for a splendid panorama
Food and wine experience
An incredibly diverse territory, from which some extraordinary typical products come from, including the white truffle of Alba and the prized “fassone”, just to give an example. These extraordinary lands are reflected, in addition to the wines, on the local gastronomic offer, equally rich and heterogeneous: from meats, also eaten raw, from hand-made pasta to the infinite cheeses, tome and robiole, from vegetables to slow-cooked braised meats, to arrive to sweets. Their flavor accompanied by fine wines will crown the taste of your experience.
Neive is a magnificent village located in the Western Langhe about 10 km from Alba in the direction of Asti.
The oldest part of the town, with a medieval layout, was built on a hillock. The medieval village has remained practically intact and, although it has been remodeled over the centuries, it has not been touched by contemporary urbanization.
Due to the wealth of vineyards and trade, the strategic importance and the beauty of the place, Neive “alta” was always chosen as the residence of the landed nobility and the rich bourgeoisie, acquiring splendid palaces and acquiring the nickname of «pais di sgnuret “(” Town of lords “).
Today Neive is included in the club of the most beautiful villages in Italy, wanted by the Council of Tourism of the Anci (National Association of Italian Municipalities).
Arriving in Neive from the hills of Barbaresco you can enjoy one of the most exciting views of the Langa planted with vineyards.
