Back to the roots in Piedmont & Liguria HPL

Italy

This tour to the Piedmont is heaven for connoisseurs, explorers and motorcyclists alike.

Our tour starts in Alba, famous for the white wine Dolcetto d’Alba and for the precious white truffles. Two days of riding panoramic routes across rolling hills, medieval towns and charming landscapes, which are often compared to Tuscany’s Chianti region. But unlike Chianti this area of Piedmont is still a little secret, far away from regular tourist routes!

After our share of Barolo and Risotto we head towards the ocean, to Liguria and the famous Portofino for the second part of our journey. A castle here, a palace there, soon the vineyards give way to olive groves. One word can describe this coastline: breathtaking. We have three days to explore the five pictoresque villages of the Cinque Terre and to enjoy their twisty roads. After the last breakfast, we have to say farewell our Agriturismo and turn north, through fascinating nature back to Piedmont. Now we deserve a glass of Asti Martini!
