Responsible tourism: Italy biking vacation, Piedmont region

Environment

On this easy-paced cycling tour, travelers arrive at our meeting point in the lovely city of Alba with their own means, and then can happily leave all forms of transportation behind! You will only need a bicycle and your own two feet to explore the magical region of Piedmont, home to sweet rolling hills covered with vineyards, orchards and forests. This environmentally friendly way to travel eases congestion on the roads and in parking lots at the small villages you will visit along your route, and decreases pollution in the region. Along the way, we will point out places to stop where you can dispose of your rubbish and refill your water bottles at one of the many village drinking fountains.

As Piedmont is an important growing and grazing area, supplying wine, fruit, nuts, dairy products and other food to Italy and beyond, keeping the air and soil in this region healthy is truly vital. Sightseeing by bike not only lessens your carbon footprint, but is also the best way to truly enjoy this enchanting area seemingly untouched by the passage of time.

Community

In the birthplace of Slow Food there's no better way to travel than at a slow pace! This relaxing cycling tour will work up your appetite but still allow you time to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and visit historic villages and medieval castles along your way. Following our tailor-made recommendations and guidance you will get an authentic taste of real life in Piedmont and help drive business to smaller, locally run inns and eateries that truly benefit from your patronage.

Speaking of taste, this tour leaves plenty of time to try the regional cuisine between bike rides and learn first-hand how tradition and food has been preserved over centuries in this area, giving rise to the Slow Food movement. From delightful meals featuring seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, to a visit to Barolo's wine museum where you will discover how local wines are produced and the secrets of this land’s terroir, you are in for a trip that is truly a treat!
