7 Days / 6 Nights

Cycle path through hazelnut groves

Piedmont, in the north of Italy is a real gem for cyclists. The region is only for those in the know, and offers travellers an area that is authentic and untouched. In the Canavese region you will not only find historic castles, but also typical fine wines of Italy. There is a reason why the wine route bears the name ‘Strada Reale dei Vini’. This cycling holiday in northern Italy is particularly suitable for beginners and leisure cyclists due to the easy route. You will be amazed by Canavese, a small part of Italy that has been largely untouched by tourism so far.

Seven active cycling days, around 225 kilometres, a home away from home and countless scenic views: you can look forward to it all in Piedmont. From your starting point, the idyllic village of Romano Canavese, you will discover a new part of Piedmont. This region of Italy, which has not yet been touched by tourism, shows its most beautiful side.

  • Stay at an 18th century villa: Have a stately stay in the 4-star Sina Villa Matilde. You can relax completely in the hotels own park, pool and small wellness area.
  • Culinary pampering: The chefs of the Sina Villa Matilde hotel prepare a 4-course menu, with typical Italian ingredients on a half-board basis.
  • Train to Turin: On the fourth day of your bike tour, take the train to the regional capital of Turin (included in the price) and have plenty of time to visit the many piazzas. Then get back on the idyllic cycle path along the river Po.

So you can fully enjoy the seven-day cycle tour, your holiday home is the medieval Romano Canavese. From this small Italian town, you can explore the region a little more each day. The day trips are between 35 and 60 kilometres and mostly run on flat to hilly paths, most of them with little traffic. With Eurobike you start well prepared on your cycling adventure, thanks to detailed travel documents.

Itinerary at a glance

The hotel staff at the reception desk will provide you with tour information and rental bikes. Afterwards, you still have enough time for a walk through the medieval town. 

Your first bike tour will lead you on attractive trails along the river Dora Baltea to the South. Soon you will have reached the beautifully situated lake Candia. The lake invites you to jump into its clear water. After a long climb (4 km) you will reach the top of the moraine hills from which you will have a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Along the royal wine route, you will get back to your hotel. 

Through meadows and fields, today's stage leads you to Ivrea. The river Dora Baltea has dug a deep riverbed, offering spectacular views. After a short rest in the medieval city centre, you will continue your tour to two mountain lakes nearby. Romantically, they invite you to swim for some time. Later, you will return to your hotel, cycling along the old Franciscan Road, which was an important pilgrimage route for the monks to Rome.

In the morning, you will take the train to the capital city of Turin. Here, not only the great Piazza Vittorio Veneto will impress you. There is a lot to be discovered in this lively city. A nice bike path along the river Po leads back to the North. In Chiavasso, you should stop for some time. In the small town on the river Po, with its little sidewalk cafes, real Italian lifestyle is lived. The road back to your hotel leads past the castle Castello Mazze from which the valley had been guarded for centuries. 

Very athletic cyclists may visit the impressive castle Castello di Masino at the beginning of the tour (very steep rise for approx. 2 km). If you prefer a more relaxed daytrip, you can follow the route over gently rolling hills and through small towns with historical churches and small castles. You will also get nice opportunities for swimming and sunbathing at the lake promenade in Viverone. Later, you will continue your tour through an agricultural landscape. Kiwis, peaches and grapes are grown right along the bike course. 

Through corn fields, today's tour leads you to Castello Pavone. After a short climb, you will reach the top of the moraine hills. Nice views of the valley will compensate for the climbs you had to conquer. Small castles can be seen cycling along the royal wine route. After an exhilarating downhill ride, you will again reach your wellness hotel.
