Piedmont

piedmont-map-biketourPiedmont is at the foothills of the Alps, which make up almost half of the region - the rest being divided between hillside and plains.
The Langhe and Monferrato wine country is certainly the favorite area as far as cycling vacation- recently included the Unesco’s world heritage list; this countryside is characterized by medieval villages, ancient fortified castles, and hills lined with kilometer after kilometer of vineyards and fruit orchards.
The region boasts prized white truffles, and some of the country’s finest wines: Barbaresco, Barbera, Barolo, and Dolcetto
