Barbaresco to Barolo Self-guided Walking Tour

Walking in the Piedmonts

The Piedmont is Italy’s second biggest region and could not be more multi-faceted. Pure bliss while you explore the Langhe region during your walks, but there is more – such as the varied nature landscape of the unmistakable line of hills covered with vineyards as far as the eye can see. This is the spot where the world’s finest and most expensive wines are grown and there are plenty of opportunities to sample some of them in the numerous wine stores all located in historic buildings. Culturally the Piedmont region is just as diverse and has a lot to offer, starting with numerous historic places and the medieval villages situated on small hills between picturesque valleys are especially attractive. Finally the culinary side of this region makes it of course a special hotspot: truffles, risotto and cheese topped off by delicious wine and a little piece of ‚Nocciola di Piedmonte’ – experience walking bliss in paradise!

Character - Walking Level 2

The terrain is hilly and the route leads through vineyards and forests. Daily walking tours vary in walking times and can last up to 6 hours.

  • Day 2

    Alba – Treiso

    You comfortably walk along the river Tanaro to Barbareso, the first ‚wine metropolis’ of your walking tour. In Barbaresco everything revolves around splendid wine, we suggest you sample ‚Barolo’s little brother’ in the Enoteca Regionale located in the converted church San Donato.

    On your way to the hamlet of Canta you walk along the Rocche di Sette Fratelli, a deep gorge situated between soft vineyards. Then you continue towards San Bovo enjoying marvellous panoramic views and finally reach the flower village of Castino, located onto top of a hill between the Bormida and Belbo river valleys. In the Middle Ages it was an affluent focal point with three monasteries and today you can marvel at the first truffle grove for tourists in this region. The route leads you along the ridge of a hill in between chestnut- and hazelnut trees down to Cravanzana. Walking time: approx. 5 hours. Details: approx. 17 km, +430 m / -530 m

  • Day 4

    Cravanzana – Bossolasco

    From the heart of hazelnut growing, the route takes you on slightly hilly terrain through the upper Belbo-river valley, well-known for potato growing via Feisoglio to Niella Belbo. The architectural style of this medieval village was shaped by Napoleon’s march through, hence the byname ‚dei francesci’. After a range of hills with marvellous views onto sleepy little villages and old ruins, you reach San Benedetto. Short transfer to the well-known flower villlage of Bossolasco. Walking time: approx. 4.5 hours. Details: approx. 16 km, +380 m / -370 m
