Day 2 – Cycling in the Barolo wine region

Meals included: breakfast and wine tasting

Bikes are delivered to the hotel at 9am. Download our gps tracks on your device OR meet our tour guide at the hotel.

After breakfast enjoy a cycling tour in the Barolo wine region. You will pedal on some of the most scenic wine routes of the Langhe hills, a UNESCO World Heritage site where medieval castles and farmhouses are nestled amongst the vineyards.

Stop in a boutique winery located in the Barolo wine region. Visit the cellar and enjoy a tasting of four wines paired with salami and cheese (this is not a meal but enough to satisfy your appetite).

Your Piedmont Barolo Bike Tour continues up and down the gentle slopes of the Langhe hills, back to your hotel.

Dinner on your own: Meet Piemonte provides a list of dining options in a walking distance from your accommodation and we are available for booking a table in your behalf.

Day 3 – Pedaling on the Alta Langa roads

Meals included: breakfast and lunch

After breakfast, you’ll be pedaling on the “Alta Langa” roads, a region where the hills get higher and the vineyards give way to hazelnut orchards and hardier vegetation.

Stop for a 3-course lunch in a traditional and cozy “osteria” in one of the villages of the Langhe hills.

Continue with scenic views of medieval towers perched on hilltops and farmhouses scattered around the countryside.

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

Day 4 – Piedmont Barolo Bike Tour in Neive and Barbaresco

Meals included: breakfast, wine tasting and dinner

For your final day on this Italian bike tour, we take 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!

Pedaling downhill, surrounded by vineyards of Nebbiolo grapes, our bike route takes you to a family-run boutique winery of Barbaresco wine. 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, explore the quaint village of Neive with its cozy wine shops and the chance to take a stroll through 1700s palaces and Baroque churches. Then, we recommend a stop at the foot of the tower of Barbaresco and enjoy views over the river valley that connects Alba to Asti.

Tonight let us take you to a local restaurant and toast to the completion of your Piedmont Barolo Bike Tour!
