A natural amphitheater of small peaks overlooking the valley that is dotted with small villages and lakes. Making our way by single track, jeep trail, and rolling through villages along the route.A day off the bike will be spent exploring the beautiful Valsusa. Going west towards the border with France, we'll follow the ancient routes of pilgrims and warriors while enjoying the view of the mountains, the peaceful nature, and the valley between the incredible abbeys and monasteries that stand like sentinels.We will explore the Roman Amphitheatre in Susa and the frescoes on the vault in Sant'Antonio of Ranverso. Ending our day of exploration with the magnificent Sacred of San Michele, the abbey, which inspired Umberto Eco's "The name of the rose".During our journey to the wine region of Langhe, we will go through Monferrato to arrive to Canelli, where we will visit the Unesco Heritage, the "Underground Wine Cathedrals" sampling the prized Moscato and Barbera.
