Book this tour to go on an 8-day hike through one of the most beautiful parts of Italy. Known for its truffles and wines, Piedmont is Italy’s second largest region. Explore Langhe, located in the province of Cuneo in Piedmont, during your walk. See the rows of vines that cover the hills as far as the eye can see. Walk through woods where some of the most delicious truffles in the world grow.

This is the spot where some of the world’s finest and most expensive wines are produced and you will have the opportunity to attend a wine-tasting session at a famous winery. But there is more to the Piedmont region than just vineyards and truffles.

Travel through historic towns and medieval villages situated on small hills in picturesque valleys. See palaces and castles, monasteries and churches that have stood in this part of the world for centuries. You will be provided with a carefully elaborated route description so that you do not loose your way through this piece of paradise.
Hotel
Welcome to the 'Truffel Metropolis.' This medieval town is known not just for its famous delicacy but also for its opulent palaces and towers. Take a stroll around town and see its impressive architecture.
4.5 hours Hotel
Follow the Tanaro River to reach Barbareso, the first wine destination of your walking tour. In Barbaresco, everything revolves around its splendid wines. We suggest you sample Barolo’s Little Brother in Enoteca Regionale located in the converted church of San Donato.

The route leads you through the landscape typical of the Langhe region, along vast vineyards, to the picturesque Neive. Spend the night in Treiso, situated at the centre of Langa del Barbaresco, a village that was already popular as a holiday destination during the Roman times.

This area was known for its affluence in the Middle Ages, when it had three monasteries. Follow the trail along the ridge of a hill, travelling through forests dominated by chestnut and hazelnut trees, to reach Cravanzana.

After a range of hills with marvellous views onto sleepy little villages and old ruins, you reach San Benedetto with the same-named lake.
