  Details on the area surrounding the property/accommodation  
  In the middle of the Piedmont countryside, Asti is perfectly situated for trips into the country, if you can drag yourself away from this stunning medieval town. Asti was founded by the Romans. Some sections of the ancient city walls remain on the North side of the city. The area to the NW of the city, between the centre and the Cathedral, is very rich in medieval palaces and merchants houses. Asti’s largely pedestrianised centre makes for a pleasant stroll. During the late 13th century the region became one of Italy’s wealthiest, with 150-odd towers springing up in Asti alone. Of the 12 that remain today, one, the 38m-tall Torre Troyana o Dell’Orologio can be climbed. Also rising above Asti’s historic core is the enormous belfry of the 13th-century Romanesque-Gothic Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta (Piazza Cattedrale). Its grandly painted interior merits a peek.

  Exterior Facilities Garden / Terrace  
 
  Exterior Details There is a lovely terrace and beautiful garden where you can while away some lazy hours. In summer time, during the week-ends, the garden becomes the Sound Garden. An art-bar where the contemporary art exhibition Ossigeno takes place. Here you can meander around the open air exhibits sipping wine as you go!  
 
  Further Details Historically, Asti and Alba, both feisty independent strongholds, have been fierce rivals. That rivalry is recalled by the Palio d’Asti, a bare-back horse race on the third Sunday of September commemorating a victorious battle against Alba during the Middle Ages, which today draws over a quarter of a million spectators from villages around. (Alba answers with its own donkey race on the first Sunday in October.) Four-legged races aside, these days the two towns have buried the hatchet and are united by their fine viticultural and culinary activities. At just 30km apart, it’s easy to visit them both while exploring the area. Since the 1850s the grapes grown on the plains around Asti have produced Italy’s top sparkling wine, Asti Spumante (often just referred to as Asti to avoid being lumped in with poorer-quality spumante). Made from white Muscat grapes, this sweet, pale-gold wine is best drunk young at a chilled 6°C to 8°C, like its less-fizzy cousin Moscato d’Asti. There are numerous places to sample the two, either in Asti’s 9120 hectares of vineyards tended by 6800 wine growers, or in town.

  What visitors have said about Relais Cattedrale
   
 
I highly recommend this hotel, we had a grea time, great, spacious, very specially equipped rooms in an old Cathedrale. It's one of the best hidden secrets in the Piemonte! I would always stay there again! Very personalized breakfast was included!

Found this hotel, and it was truly unusual and uniqe! The rooms with very high standard and modern design, integrated in the cathedrals style. Had a very good night sleep, you didn't hear the traffic even if you where in the middle of a quite big city (Asti, worth a visit). The breakfast room was comfortable and made you feel relaxed. Had a breakfast with about 10 different styles of cookies! It didn't made you full but it was something extra, and you won't forget the breakfast. The hostess was very helpful and friendly, she recommended an excellent restaurant and a couple of other great hotels for our stay in Piedmonte.
