Scenic self-guided cycling in the UNESCO vineyards of Piedmont

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. Following quiet, traffic-free country roads, the route starts in the lush hazelnut hills, winding 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. Gastronomic menus feature everywhere, either at the hotel, or at a specially selected restaurant close by.   https://www.exodus.co.uk/sites/exod/files/styles/panopoly_image_original... alt="" class="media-element file-default" data-delta="1" data-fid="151876" data-media-element="1" width="275" height="87"> /RidePlus is available on this tour, meaning that on most days you have the option to do a more challenging RidePlus route. Each option comes with GPS navigation and route maps to ensure you get to your destination easily, and you’ll stay at the same hotel regardless of which route you take, although RidePlus cyclists will be provided with an upgraded lightweight road bike. If you’re travelling as a group you can split up for the day to ride independently – so everyone has their perfect day.

Food

All buffet breakfasts and 8 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.

Then onto San Stefano Belbo, the birthplace of one Italy's greatest writers, Cesare Pavese; the pretty old town makes for a lovely lunch stop.

After another climb you drop down to the town of Canelli then cross the river at Santo Stefano Belbo. Beautiful roads then lead you to Castiglione Tinella and onto Castagnole delle Lanze before following the river to the famous wine town of Barberesco, just 5 km from your hotel. Maybe take time for a well deserved glass of wine before heading to your hotel in Neive for the next two nights.



Day 3

Neive is a great place to explore. Officially one of Italy's prettiest villages and home of Romano Levi, a renowned grappa maker, you can wander its cobbled streets which are lined with brightly coloured flower boxes, or after a morning by the panoramic pool, cycle or take a local bus to nearby Barbaresco for lunch and cheese-tasting in the piazza. Enjoy some wine in the enoteca, housed in a 19th century church built by the locals in thanks for a good grape harvest! Or head across to the spumante capital of Asti, with its quaint cobbled centre. Each September the main piazza is home to a crazy palio horse race to rival Siena's! *Comfortable Hotel*



Day 4

  */Option: 1/* Leaving Neive behind, you undulate through the vineyards to Castagnole Lanze before heading downhill to the River Tanaro and a lovely gentle ride along the river to Alba.

Then it's on to Grinzane Cavour where and the elegant Casa Pavesi. *Comfortable Hotel*   */Option: 2/* /https://www.exodus.co.uk/sites/exod/files/styles/panopoly_image_original... alt="" class="media-element file-default panopoly-image-original" data-delta="1" width="127" height="38">/ /*Distance - 76.3km, elevation: +1145m / -1146m */ From Neive, you soon cross the Tanaro river before heading to the undulating Roero hills, passing a series of pretty villages. Baldissero, with its beautiful castle and Medieval centre, is worth a stop. Cross the river once more and, after a challenging climb, you come to the pretty wine village of La Morra, another ideal wine stop before a long downhill to your hotel in Grinzane Cavour.



Day 5

Explore the UNESCO-recognised castle and indulge in a spot of wine tasting today. Then perhaps visit nearby Bra, a gastronomic town where the Slow Food movement was initiated - there's plenty of choice for a long, lazy lunch. There's lots to explore in the town too, including the 18th century Rococo church and the strange octagonal Zizzola, where local witches held their meetings. For the best views in the region, walk or cycle to La Morra, 'Balcony of the Langhe', spread out along a panoramic ridge above the vineyards. *Comfortable Hotel*



Day 6

  */Option: 1/* Today's cycle takes you through sunflower fields to Roddi, then on to Barolo, an ochre-hued village perched above its world-famous vineyards. The tangle of medieval streets are dominated by the Marchesi Falletti's 11th century castle. Pedal on through archetypal Langhe countryside to Monforte d'Alba, whose lovely honey-coloured old town clings enchantingly to the hillside.

Pass the Castiglione Falloetto and then into world famous Barolo. The small roads lead you through a series of small towns and as you arrive at Fossano, home of the best beef in Piemonte, continue passing hazelnut groves with great views all around. Stop off in Bene Vagienna for its impressive castle. The road now passes a series of wine towns arriving at Dogliani before climbing up through the vines to your hotel in Monforte d’Alba for the next two nights.



Day 7

Either relax at the gorgeous 18th century villa hotel with private swimming pool, or explore medieval Monforte. It's a lovely town with attractive buildings grouped around an atmospheric cobbled piazza. Maybe strike out a little further to Dogliani, dominated by its beautiful onion-domed church and famous for being at the heart of Dolcetto wine production. *Comfortable Hotel*



Day 8

*/Option: 1/* The final cycling day starts with a gentle coast along the Rea valley before a steady climb takes you to a stunning panoramic ridge. Weave through fields of wildflowers and sleepy hamlets to Serravalle Langhe, a great lunch spot with belvedere views.
