Piedmont Langhe

This custom bike tour focuses  on Langhe region – we put together a special itinerary and we hope you will enjoy also the out of beaten village Vicoforte!

From Langhe Unesco Site to undiscovered villages and fortified castles, this Cycling Piedmont tour combines the best of Italian and French cuisine and wine with scenic pedalling through rolling hills dotted with vineyards and castles.
Enjoy robust wines and sophisticated delicacies, including white and black truffles, fragrant cheeses, exquisite pastries and fine chocolates. Join us for heart-pumping rides through river valleys and up vineyard-draped hills. You will stay in Luxury hotels, and eat the kind of luxuriously rustic food that has earned this region more Michelin stars than any other in the country. In spite of the renown of its Barolo and Barbaresco wines, Piemonte is relatively undiscovered; you will experience the spectacular beauty of the Langhe and Roero hills.

#The famous Langhe hills, an intimate landscape filled with vineyards but also a cycling paradise and former training grounds of an Italian cycling legend Fausto Coppi
