Tour of Piemonte 2023
Aug 28-Sept 5
Torino - Torino
9 days (8 nights) of rolling hills dotted with the odd classic climb and enjoying the culinary delights of the famous Barolo wine region. The riding is particularly scenic and green, as we meander the foothills of the Alps which surround the river plains of the Po on three sides.
Starting and finishing in Torino, we ride our way through the region of Piedmonte, Italy’s most western state. We’ll start with the ancient town of Vicoforte, home to a magnificent church famous for its oval designed cupola, the largest in Europe – if not the world. Nearby is the climb up to Prato Nevoso, where Simon Gerrans won his first Tour de France Stage, back in 2008. Leaving Vicoforte we move north to Serralunga di Alba, for three days of rolling hills. From here we’ll head further north to just outside Torino, and our finish town of San Sebastiano di Po, or more correctly, the castle thereof. Plenty more rolling hills on offer there to, along with the 15thC castle.
Truly a special riding, dining and long lunch Italian cycling tour experience.
Features: Riding between our accomms where possible, low average daily kilometres, gentle gradients (only one climb with a peak over 2700m), all locations off the tourist route.
