A biking expedition in Piedmont is going to be an ideal trip for those who want it all, the adventure, the sights and sound, and of course the food! Piedmont is a pristine spot in between Nice and Milan and luckily has remained untouched by tourism (though it’s hard to comprehend why). In the Piedmont bike tour, you will get food that is simply a delight to your taste buds and wines that are world class. All this will be in a stunning milieu surrounded by historical sites and breathe taking scenery.
Do not expect any fast food joints in the area. Piedmont is the birthplace of the ‘slow food’ movement, which as the name suggests was a reactionary movement against the fast food culture. The region has over 300 types of cheeses! It also has the world’s largest truffle fair. Many of their traditional dishes such as plin (small handmade ravioli) require hours of patient preparation. Piedmont’s wines are also abundant and include names such as Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera .
In the small villages on the way, you will find locals excited to see visitors like you. The village mayor might lead you through his town’s museum or the local farmer might invite you to try his wine. After biking the whole day, relax in style at the luxury accommodations including a Relais & Chateaux property having an extensive spa and two beautifully renovated villas.
