Piemonte is Italy’s paradise for true connoisseurs of mouth-watering food, truffles and fabulous wines.
The Langhe region is set between the Alps and the Apennine mountains and is blessed with the fertile lands that produce the Tuber Magnatum – a prized white truffle – and some of Italy’s most prestigious red wines: the Barolo and Barbera.
Discover a spectacular array of local specialties including gourmet cheeses, pastries and chocolates that are appreciated the world over.
This walking trip takes you amidst a magnificent landscape of rolling hills dotted with small picturesque villages, elegant castles and feudal towers, walking through vineyards and hazelnut forests and staying in small rural villages where the accommodation is charming and welcoming.

• An infinite selection of incredible wines, cheese, sweets and chocolates to taste along the way
• White truffles aplenty
• Vineyard walks and carefully groomed hazelnut forests
• Small, comfortable, family run accommodation some with prize winning restaurants on site or near by
• Spectacular views of the snow capped alps on clear days
• Friendly people
• Quiet foot paths


8 DAYS PROGRAM

Day 1 - Arrive in Alba
Alba on BB basis Arrive in Alba, the heart of Piedmont wine country, a captivating medieval city of a “hundred towers” and a treasure chest of flavours and aromas. After checking in, go out for a walk to explore the town and why not stop in one of its many divine pastry shops to tempt your palette. Treat yourself to the sweet tastes of Italy.

Day 2 - Roddi to Barolo -Vergne or Barolo on BB basis
Transfer to Roddi or Verduno and walk to Vergne -Barolo
Vergne or Barolo on BB basis Today’s itinerary starts with a transfer to Roddi.
Crossing several hills, you reach the rustic hilltop village of La Morra from where you continue to the hamlet of Vergne.
On route you have several wine tasting options. On clear days you can see the Alps and Mt. Monviso that stay snow-capped till the beginning of summer. In La Morra you can visit the Ratti Museum to learn history, tradition and the art of the good wine.
Stop at Cantina Comunale (closed on Tuesdays) that has a wide selection of wines to taste and buy, and a lot of videos on local wines and gastronomy.
The walk can be shortened by about 4 km when starting in Verduno instead of Roddi. Depending on where you have been booked, you may end your walk in Vergne or Barolo.- km 15 or km 13

Day 3 - Barolo to Monforte d’Alba
Monforte d’Alba on BB basis Passing by the old village of Novello, with its Middle Aged tower you reach the wine capital of Barolo, where the famous wine is produced. Spend some time exploring the recently opened WiMu Wine Museum located in the Castello dei Marchesi Faletti. Lunch at one of the great local trattorias. From here on the walk passes through vineyards and forests and takes you to Monforte d’Alba, a nice hill top village.- km 12 or km 8

Day 4 - Monforte d’Alba to Cissone
Cissone on BB basis The landscape is far more varied than on the previous days as you leave the vineyards behind and climb through tidy hazelnut forests and wild woods surrounding the ancient hamlet of Serralunga d’Alba. From here a steep climb brings you to Roddino from where a long descent takes you to the final climb up to Cissone.- km 17 or 19 km

Day 5 - Cissone round walk
Cissone on BB basis A glass of local wine from a traditional cantina in the centre of the village is a lovely way to celebrate this day of relaxing and taking it easy. After a short circular walk in the surroundings of Cissone, unwind and admire the splendid views from the farm. The scenery is a unique spectacle, embroidered with vineyards and dotted with towers and castles. km 8,5

Day 6 - Cissone to Cravanzana.
Cravanzana on BB basis The landscape of the high Langhe area around Cissone is characterised by hazelnut forests and those slopes that are too steep to be cultivated are covered by oaks. This is also the area where you find the most precious of the local treasure: the ‘Tuber Magnatum’, also known as ‘the white truffle of Alba’ and, if you don’t find it underground, you are sure to find it at the local restaurant. km 20 or km 13

Day 7 - Cravanzana to Cortemilia
Cortemilia on BB basis Today the landscape is as varied as the walk itself. You visit the villages of Torre Bormida and Bergolo that you reach crossing hazelnut plantations and dense chestnut woods using broad forest paths, small grassy trails and narrow cobbled streets until you reach the town of Cortemilia. On clear days the view on the hills and the Alps is breath-taking - km 13


Day 8 - Arrivederci Cortemilia! The trip and our services end after breakfast, unless you have booked extra nights or other services with us. You need to reach Alba or Asti where you take the train to Turin or Milan airports.
