Cycling in the land of the Fiat 500

The Alps at your back, a glass of moscato d'Asti waiting for you at the end of your day... la vita è bella in the Piedmont region! For two weeks, discover the architectural richness of the stopover towns, the majesty of the mountains overlooking Turin, and enough gastronomic specialties to ensure that you won't eat the same thing twice, even if you'll probably want to stock up on dishes featuring the region's native white truffles.

Enjoy riding throgh the small country roads lined with fields and century-old houses... even millennia old! In the land of Barolo and Barbaresco, life is sweet, and the road will allow you to serenely admire the rich landscapes of the agricultural heartland of Italy!
