Details

Tucked away in northern Italy, Piedmont is a region brimming with vineyard covered, softly rolling hills, sun-drenched hamlets, world-class wines and incredible hotels. Your cycling holiday is varied and mainly follows quiet, traffic-free country roads. Starting in the lush hazelnut hills, you'll wind through terraces of swaying vines, verdant pine forests and rippling rivers to discover pretty hilltop hamlets and ancient castles. The region boasts an incredible array of fine wine towns, including Barbaresco and Barolo, both ideal lunch stops on your cycling days or free days. Other highlights include Alba's crimson, cobbled streets (where you can sample the local chocolate), the expansive views as you freewheel out of Mango, and strolling amongst the tangle of streets and geranium-decked houses of Monforte d'Alba's wonderful centre.

    • All buffet breakfasts and 4 gastronomic dinners included.You'll enjoy
      gastronomic menus everywhere, either dining at your hotel, or at a specially
      selected restaurant close by. The cuisine in the Piedmont region is different
      to most other Italian regions, a fusion of the best of Italian and French
      food and certainly won't disappoint gastronomes. Regional specialities
      include white truffles which are found almost exclusively in the woods around
      Alba. Hazelnuts are another locally produced ingredient that feature heavily
      on the menu. Cheese is also widely produced in Piedmont, such as Murazzano,
      made with full-cream sheep's milk. Meals in the region always start with
      bread, your primo (first course) will usually be a pasta dish, such as
      agnolotti. Your secondo (main course) will then be something hearty like beef
      gently braised in Barolo wine. Meats such as pork, beef and veal are the
      popular choice of the region. Piedmont's wine is famous throughout the world.
      The most famous are the wines of the Langhe, which produces Barolo,
      Barbaresco, Dolcetto, Barbera as well as whites such as Asti and Moscato.
      Other highlights include Alba's crimson, cobbled streets where you can sample
      the local chocolate.
