Cycling holidays Piedmont «Charme»

In the Italian Garden of Eden.

Piedmont really is a paradise for gourmets! Fantastic wines, first-class truffles, sweet chocolate and an artful kitchen attract gourmets from all over the world to visit this region. An awesome landscape assures variety for the cycle tours. The first capital of Italy – Turin – is also named “Little Paris”. You will feel the French flair! Stroll through the numerous medieval alleys in the small villages. You will get together with various treasuries of culinary, architectural or cultural nature! To discover Piedmont by bike really is an awesome experience!

Itinerary

In the evening, you will have a personal tour briefing and bike distribution. The first capital of Italy is awaiting you with a lot of places of interest

Hotel (example): BW Plus Executive Hotel

On bike paths and side roads you cycle along the river Po. You should take your time for the rococo palace of Stupinigi which was designed by the architect Filippo Juvarra. This palace was the residence for the family of Savoyen for many years. Through parks and along rivers you continue to Penerolo, which is famous for its well-known cavalry school.

Hotel (example): Albergo Regina

You cycle on beautiful paths along fruit orchards and vineyards to Cavour with its quaint fortress “Rocca” – a hill in the middle of flat landscape. You will then reach medieval Saluzzo. 

Hotel (example): Hotel Antiche Mura

Today you will pass the beautiful palaces of Manta and Costigliole. You should visit Benevagienna – a city with Roman roots – and its archaeological excavations. Afterwards you continue to Cherasco and Bra, which is the capital of gourmets. The organisation “Slow Food” was founded here.

Hotel (example): Albergo Cantine Ascheri

In Pollenzo – also a city with Roman roots – the University of “tastefulness” is located. After Barolo you have to manage some hills, but you will be “compensated” with Italians best wine afterwards. You have to taste! Along the river Tanaro you continue to Alba (very famous for truffles).

Hotel (example): Hotel Calissano

Today you cycle in the region of Roero. On your way you will see the palaces of Guarene and Cisterna – the museum can be visited. Your overnight stay is in Asti which is a very cultural city. It is famous for its sparkling wine and the rivalry of Palio.

Hotel (example): Hotel Aleramo

Your tour leads you on secondary paths and along small rivers back to Turin where you first started your tour.  On your way, you will see romantic villages. In Chieri, tasty vines tempt you to have another glass of wine before travelling back to Turin by train.

Hotel (example): BW Plus Executive Hotel

Tour character

You cycle on bike paths and side roads. The first two stages are predominantly flat. Afterwards the tour course has a rather hilly routing. On the stage from Bra to Barolo to Alba there are also a few longer ascents to cycle. In the cities you cycle on roads with heavier traffic.

Anstrengend, aber unbezahlbar wertvoll!
Die Radtour ist sehr abwechslungsreich, meist gut ausgeschildert. Achtung, da die Büsche & Sträucher stark gewachsen sind > auch hinter Blättern und Zweigen nach Klebern suchen.... :-) Solltet ihr Probleme haben mit den Fahrrädern, der Support ist genial. Auch in den Hotels sind die Angestellten sehr hilfsbereit. Ich kam nach Hause und habe ziemlich als Erstes den Eurotrek Katalog studiert, wohin unsere nächsten Veloferien hingehen sollen..... Viel Spass und Freude beim raddeln und geniessen!

Piemont-Rundfahrt
Der Rücktritt am ausgeliehenen E-Bike war gewöhnungsbedürftig. Heute fährt ja kein Mensch mehr mit Rücktritt. Beim Anfahren gab es gefährliche Momente, da man die Pedale umständlich ausrichten musste.Ausserdem quietschte er beim Bremsen ohrenbetäubend.

Wunderbares Piemont
Das Piemont mit seinen schmucken Städchen, der wunderbaren Rebenlandschaft, dem stattlichen Turin und der wunderbaren Küche war eine absolute Entdeckung. Das Erkunden der Region per Rad machte die Ferien perfekt.

Landschaftlich abwechslungsreiche Tour
Freundlicher, informativer Empfang durch Signor Cesare in Turin. Routenwahl gut gewählt. Landschaftlich abwechslungsreich. Etappenlänge ist gut. Strecke sehr gut ausgeschildert und beschrieben. War einfach zu finden. Sehr gute Unterkünfte mit Ambiente. Tipps der Restaurants waren ebenfalls hilfreich. Hotelpersonal = gastfreundlich.

Piemont
Die Etappen sind für normale Räder etwas lang - besonders die letzte Etappe (mit E-Bikes kein Problem).Für Mountain-Biker keine Trails - sehr schade!

Die Piemont-Reise ist nicht als Biketour ausgeschrieben, sondern für "normale" Tourenvelofahrer gedacht.Unsere Bikereisen finden Sie in einer eigenen Kategorie bzw. in einem anderen Katalog.
