Musei di Asti
Eight sites, one soul: that of Asti.
A museum route which speaks about Asti and reveals its DNA:
a submerged past that starts from the Roman Age and leads us to discover its birth. From buildings and museums that tell of the town through the lives of its most famous characters, to the Crypt and the Baptistery, evidence of the great medieval tradition, and then up to the Tower that rises above the city and the hills around.
A route perfectly set in the richness of a welcoming and unmissable territory , like its people, its flavors and its culture.
