Bra is a town in Piedmont. It is a culinary destination, home to the Slow Food movement and the University of Gastronomic Sciences, so you are guaranteed to eat and drink well. Every other year, in September the town also hosts Cheese, a large international cheese festival.
For many, the easiest way to get in is by train from Asti. If you are already in Turin, you can take a direct train to Bra.
As it is a rather small town, one can explore Bra by foot.
