After breakfast, your Piedmont Barolo Bike Tour takes you on the hills on the eastern side of Alba. Today bike route includes the village of Treiso, the highest within the area of production of Barbaresco wine. Once you reach the top, make sure to stop and admire the view: if the day is clear you can see from the Matterhorn all the way to the French border!

 

Pedal downhill surrounded by vineyards of Nebbiolo grapes, for a tour of family-run boutique winery. Step inside the cellar where wine ages in oak barrels. Then enjoy a premium wine tasting paired with cheese and salami, sitting on a terrace overlooking the Langhe hills.

 

In the afternoon, we recommend a stop at the foot of the tower of Barbaresco to enjoy views over the river valley that connects Alba to Asti. Then, explore the quaint village of Neive with its cozy wine shops and the chance to take a stroll through 1700s palaces and Baroque churches.

 

Return to your hotel at your convenience.  For dinner the choice is yours among one of the many dining options in town.

For your final day on this Italian bike tour, you’ll be heading to the “Alta Langa” a region where the hills get higher and the vineyards give way to hazelnut orchards and hardier vegetation.

 

For lunch, our bike route takes you to Monforte, a charming village where you can decide to grab a quick lunch among a nice selection of cafes and excellent trattorie.

 

Cycling in the Barolo wine region, it is now  time to visit a Barolo winery where the wine tasting will compare different types of Barolo wine.  The rest of the day is an easy downhill route back to your hotel for some rest before our Farewell dinner.
