Piedmont is a real paradise for gourmets. Prestigious white wines, delicious chocolate and a sweet landscape of hills covered by regular rows of vineyards; in the distance the majestic circle of the Alps. Piedmont is elegance and style. This can be seen in Turin, the first capital of Italy 150 years ago, where the influence of the French style is very evident; that's why the city is sometimesown as "little Paris". You will be pleasantly surprised by small towns such as Pinerolo and Saluzzo with their medieval charm. Bra and Alba speak to us of enogastronomy: don't miss the pleasure of a delicious dinner and the chance to sample the noble wines of Barolo or Barbaresco.
In short, discovering Piedmont by bike is quite a special experience.
