Plan your Cycle Holiday full of enjoyment and culture in Northern Italy
Cycling here you are often the only people around on the roads in Piedmont. Even to this day, this picturesque region on the border between France and Switzerland has escaped mass tourism. The “country at the foot of the mountains” (as it is literally called) is therefore a well-kept secret amongst cycle tourists. Piedmont inspires culture lovers just as much as those with a sweet tooth.
Costigliole, Asti, Turin, Bra – the list of charming towns here simply doesn’t end. For your bike tour in Piedmont, Eurobike has selected the nicest paths and great routes.
Discover Piedmont, the centre of Italy's history by bike
You can get right up close to Italy’s eventful history on a bike tour in Piedmont. This region in northern Italy still bears witness with its impressive palaces to the time when it was under rule. Piedmont used to be the centre of the rulers and for Italy’s kings. The well-maintained palaces in Manta and Costigliole open their doors to culture-interested visitors. The Savoy dynasty lived in the Stupinigi royal hunting palace. It was from this palace that they reigned. The impressive palace, in Rococo style, transports visitors back into the High Middle Ages and offers its visitors a lot of history.
Your Bike Tour goes to the birth place of the Slow-Food-Movement
Top-quality tasty products, seasonal products and respect for those who make the food – that is the mission of the well known slow-food-movement. The idea came from Bra and you are sure to benefit from it a lot whilst you are here. Seeing as the products are already renowned for their excellence, for their sustainability and for their taste. The founders of the movement didn’t make the snake the symbol of it for nothing: it’s a sign of enjoyment, which doesn’t disappear quickly.
Those with a sweet tooth will be particularly delighted about the sweet delicacies you will come across on your bike tour in northern Italy. Torrone (white nougat from Alba), Baci di Dama (hazelnut biscuits with a chocolate filling) from Asti, chocolate pralines from Turin and the world famous Amarettini are just a selection.
