Avigliana is a small town 25 kilometers from Turin immersed in a breathtaking landscape. Surrounded by mountains, its urban core actually lies on the banks of homonymous lakes. It is a natural oasis on the outskirts of the regional capital. Not far away, one can also see the Sacra di San Michele, an imposing and beautiful medieval abbey - a source of inspiration for the novel "The Name of the Rose" by Nobel Prize laureate, Umberto Eco.
