Hill after hill of vineyards, castles, villages from another time, with the Alps as a backdrop. Leave your bike at the entrance of a starred restaurant and order the legendary truffles d’Alba – priceless!
An unparalleled area in Italy which offers not only delicious wine and food, but also panoramas speckled with authentic villages, castles, gentle slopes of vineyards, and the magnificent and majestic backdrop of the Alps.
The SLOW FOOD movement, good food prepared to perfection, was born here. The highest concentration of Michelin-starred restaurants in all of Italy is found in this area, as are the best truffles in the world. Some of the most sought-after red wine, such as Barolo and Barbaresco, is produced here. If there is a mecca of cuisine, this is it.
Torino, the original capital of Italy, offers lots of opportunities for recreation, entertainment and visits to cultural and artistic sites. Hilly stretches, dotted with ancient castles and villages make up the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato wine growing areas, all of which are UNESCO heritage sites, offering wine tasting tours to discover dishes and wines renowned the world over.
The castles located in the Langhe-Roero area and the Romantic Road, featuring multiple panoramic views, also located in the Langhe-Roero. But, above all, the white truffles of Alba and the truffle fair in Alba, every year in October/November. And, Torino is a must see, with its beautiful hills.
Many of the climbs of the Tour of Italy can be found – and climbed here: the Sestriere, the Colle delle Finestre and the Col Agnel. But, there are rides for every cyclist to enjoy: from the slopes of the Alps to eat and drink in the vineyards and hazelnut groves of the Langhe, to the bike paths along the green countryside of the Po. This is the only place you can enter starred restaurant and order the best truffle in the world, garbed in your bike shorts and helmet!
