What could be better than cycling, delicious food and great wine?
The Piedmont region of Northern Italy is known for its villas, castles, vineyards and delicious, French-influenced cuisine. Piedmont, which translates to "foot of the mountains," is nestled between the French and Swiss Alps. This area is a lot less touristy than Tuscany and Umbria, making it a great region for cyclists. Our tour takes place during the grape harvest, so it's a perfect time to visit the wineries and taste some of Italy's best red wines, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo and Asti Spumante, a sweet, sparkling white wine.
