Overview

This extremely unusual road bike tour in Piedmont will take us from the beautiful Langhe region to the Ligurian Sea. We will start our cycling experience in Piedmont, passing through some very famous vineyards and charming villages, full of history, and will spend a week cycling along peaceful roads. Cycling for two days in the Basse Langhe area, visiting villages named after very famous white and red wines: Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera d'Alba, Diano d'Alba, Dolcetto d'Alba, etc. However, the area is also known for its delicious cuisine and local recipes for white and black truffles and many different savoury cheeses.

From the third day, we'll leave the area to get closer to the sea. Charming villages, cycling on the tiny roads away from traffic, waiting for us, rolling hills and finally the Ligurian Sea, we'll ride along the road of the famous Milano-Sanremo road bike race. A road bike tour in Piedmont can only accommodate up to 7 people. During the trip, we will always provide you with the help of Van Assistance, and you will rest in a exclusive accommodation personally selected by our team. Our team is fully focused on the details to ensure the best bike tour in Piedmont!
