Piedmont Magnifica Cycling Tour

Famed for its truffles, and with towns like Barolo and Barbaresco, it’s easy to understand why Piedmont is a gourmand’s paradise.

8 Days

In fact, many argue that the region produces the best food in all of Italy. The Langa and Roero regions of Piedmont are in one of the most important wine production areas in Italy, and received UNESCO World Heritage status in 2014. The Piedmont Magnifica Cycling Tour will take us to the heart of these regions, over rolling hills covered with endless vineyards and past ancient castles and hidden hilltop hamlets. You’ll see how connected the local people are to the land, and how they take pride in everything they produce.

Vineyards cover most of the hills here and wines such as Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and Nebbiolo are perfectly paired with dishes that will make each meal a gastronomic event. Towns like Canale, Pollenzo, Monforte and Alba are perfect stops for a taste of what the region has to offer, where strolling through the cobbled streets and sitting in geranium-decked piazzas is a great way to end a day on the bike. The Alba truffle fair gets in full swing in October, beginning with the "Palio degli Asini,“ the donkey race. Throughout the year the nine quarters of the city prepare for the race that awards victory for the parade and for the best quarter. The medieval parade, with over a thousand participants in typical costume, winds through the city streets, ending in the arena of the Palio, just before the donkey race. A truly memorable experience for tourists.

Accommodations during your journey include castles, a five-star luxury resort, and a boutique hotel in the center of Alba. In early October, it might still be harvest time for the nebbiolo grapes and the colors make the hills and vineyards look like they are painted!
