... no better place to celebrate a loved one birthday (May 2018)
Best Western Principe absolutely central in Cuneo is an excellent choice to discover on foot the old town. Maurizio and Irene (brother and sister managers) have a book of good reference to what-to-do, what-to-see and where-to-eat… Elisabetta, Maurizio’s daughter, make sure all those services are available on request.
It is a 4-stars hotel, with REAL 4-stars quality beddings and breakfast.
Amongst chasing Restaurants, Trattorias, or Locandas… there are « Osterias » which both Maurizio and Irene fill away in their reference folder/book.
Such as Osteria Sansa Fretta, Osteria Interno, Osteria da Christian and the latest we just sampled « Osterioa Due Grappoli ».
All those are walking distance from Principe hotel.
The « style » of Osteria compared to other eating places is it is run by real « creators ». Not too pricey. Absolutely tasty. There is also Oserai Da C christian. Five tables, he does everything. Booking a must of course.
Maurizio, Irene and Elisabetta can supply and book for you.

Then there is « La Fausto Coppi » that drags 5000 bicycle amateurs for a 250kms stages in ¨Piedmont with 4 category 1 mountain-pass…
Ànd theaters venues, and Opera venues, and other venues along the year.
The Fausto Coppi starts right in front of the hotel…. truly AWESOME site.
