We are planning a two week trip to NW Italy in Sept. What is the weather like and is there much difference between the area south of Turin and the area near Aosta (assume it is much cooler...rain too?) We would like to do a week around Turin/Alba/Bra and a week in the mountains. We like to spend as much time outdoors as we can so just curious if the weather will allow.
Also assuming we fly into Rome, is it better to fly or take the train to Turin? The flights may be expensive I woudl think but of course much faster..?
