Falling in love along the Romantic Road of Piedmont, Italy
The Romantic Road of Piedemont, known in Italy as the “Romantic Road of Langhe and Roero”, is not only a simple road through natural landscapes, but an orginal way to enjoy Piedmont beauties and almost assimilate its authentic and genuine soul, rich of history, art and nature. But mostly, the Romantic Road offers to all its visitors, lovers and not, an original alternative to spend your weekend outside, visiting places, doing sports, knowing people, tasting good food and enjoying a glass of wine.
The itineraries: between glasses of wine and Medieval villages
The Romantic Road of Piedmont unties in a 130 km long road with more that 30 hikes, which connect more than 30 little villages of Piedmont. The stops were carefully choosen: every village preserves the memories of Piedmont ancient history, its flavours and spirits, all wrapped in a breathtaking landscape.
The Medieval history lovers will feel the magic atmosphere of past times within the many castles scattered across the territory: Grinzane Cavour Castle, Barolo Castle, Serralunga d’Alba Castle, Prunetto and Govone Castle. The modern history lovers instead will be moved by the sigh of the Fortess of Resistence. All this history is surrounded by a romantic landscape among hills and vineyards, where you can enjoy hikes, bike rides, walks, horse rides and even an hot air balloon ride! A natural journey indeed, but also a cultural, emotional one, dedicated to food and wine.
The area of the Langhe and Roero is very well known for its wine and local food. Barolo and Barbaresco, Roero and Nebbiolo are just few wine specialities which inspired culinary goodies like the Dolcetto risotto or boar meat with civet wine. We can’t forget the king of the region: the white truffle.
