As with a glass of old Barolo the senses of native condescension are suddenly reawakened in the bitterest souls.
Without Piedmont, without its history, its tradition and culture, Italy couldn't exist as we know it today. So, if you want to find out what Italy tastes like, you have to visit this extraordinary land at least once. Piedmont is known for being an area with an extraordinary cultural heritage where the passing of the centuries has left an indelible mark: an architectural and artistic wealth of enormous value that starts from the Roman remains to reach through various styles the Liberty and the contemporary period. Throughout the region, both in the small cities of art and in the capital Turin, you can admire palaces, villas, castles, fortresses of royal beauty such as the Savoy residences, but you can also take advantage of the incomparable natural beauties that the vast territory of this region can offer.
But Piedmont is also full of treasures for us cyclists, having a very varied territory. Apart from the flat areas further south, rich in rice fields, the central part of the region offers the incredible hills of the Langhe, Monferrato and Roero, with the endless vineyards of Barolo, Barbaresco and the hazelnut hills.
Finally, up to the French border, some of the highest mountains you can climb by bike, with an impressive number of passes over 2000 metres.
Some names? Colle dell'Agnello, Colle delle Finestre or Colle della Fauniera, featured in some memorable stages of the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France.
These are not mainstream climbs, the climbs also have the character of the people and places of Piedmont: they do not like to be in the spotlight, although they'd deserve it, but rather are sober, austere places. You will ride on super quiet roads and enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery that a committed cyclist can enjoy. You'll will bring back unforgettable memories.

The closest airport for our trips in Piedmont is Turin Caselle, but the best availability of flights is towards a not too far airport: Milan MXP. We suggest checking them both.
The quality of asphalt varies from good to average. There are many roads of different categories. Most are suitable for cycling, not all are suggested.
