Right in the heart of the Langhe region, the city of Alba in the Italian Piedmont Region will be the base for our tour. Alba is not only beautiful, it is a superb place to eat and it's not for nothing that it is known as the gourmet capital of Piedmont. In particular famous for its white truffles and chocolates - it is where Ferrero Rocher and Nutella come from and the legendary Gianduia was invented here.
Ride along quiet roads that wind through some of Italy’s most scenic countryside.
Climb into the vine-covered Langhe Hills surrounded by the towering Alps and Apennines. Of course Alba is also the heart of Italy's premier wine region - the Langhe and one of the best places to cycle in Northern Italy.
Piemonte is the home of the Campionissimo, Fausto Coppi and rivaled Tuscany as a producer of great cycling champions. This is the area where Coppi went riding all the time and so will you for 7 days.
