Turin to San Remo 8-day Cycling Tour

From an Alpine panorama to the Riviera of flowers

A new cycle tour to San Remo, the Riviera of Flowers. In focus: cosiness and time for enjoyment and culture! Sound appealing? Then read on now. The tour starts in Royal Turin and passes by charming and cultural highlights, with fantastic views of the Alps. The destination is the Ligurian coast in San Remo. Along the way one treat follows the other, and you are right in the middle of it!

Details of the tour:

In Turin you start the 50-kilometer stage along the Po. You pass the impressive Stupinigi Palace, and reach the medieval town of Saluzzo. Foodie tip: In the bar of the former Cistercian abbey you must taste the excellent ice cream! Continue south to Mondovi, Millesimo and Albenga. On day seven you arrive at the Riviera of Flowers, San Remo. Now you have time to enjoy the turquoise sea and the pleasant temperatures. Sunbathing with a fruity cocktail is almost in your grasp!

Highlights at a glance:

  • Passing orchards and vineyards: As you cycle to Cavour, the mountain ‘Mon Viso’ is always in view. And surrounded by orchards and vineyards is the curious castle ‘Rocca’.
  • Crossing the Alps: On day six you will reach the sea via the Bormida Valley to the Riviera of Flowers, San Remo. The summit of the Colle Scravaion offers a spectacular view of the Ligurian Sea.

Useful information:

This eight-day bike trip to the Riviera of Flowers will meet every expectation of the casual cyclist. From the Alpine panorama to the Ligurian coast, you cycle on low-traffic side roads with a consistently simple route. From time to time you can expect individual steep climbs, which are achievable to the occasional cyclist. 50 to 60kms are scheduled each day.

Experience the contrast of the snow-capped Alps and the blooming Riviera on the Ligurian Sea.

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Turin

    In the evening you will have your welcome briefing and you will receive your bikes. Explore Italy’s original capital with its royal squares and and splendid boulevards.

  • Day 2

    Turin - Pinerolo approx 50km

    Leaving Turin you follow the River Po for a bit before the bike path leads you to the impressive Palazzina di caccia of Stupinigi. This Roccoco work of art will catch your eye but so will the magnificent mountain panorama. You cycle along the flat towards Pinerolo whilst you can see the snow-capped Alpine peaks towering ahead of you. You reach your accomodation far too fast. This is where one of Italy’s most well-known cavalry schools was run. Without horses or bikes, you take a stroll through Pinerolo’s histrorical centre.

  • Day 3

    Pinerolo - Saluzzo approx 45km

    With the prominent Mount Mon Viso (“my view”) always in front of you, you cycle past orchards and vineyards on great paths to Cavour with its curious “Rocca” fortress built on a moraine hill in the middle of flat land. You should take a break by the former Staffarda Cistercian abbey. They serve excellent ice cream dishes in the bar. Afterwards you rejoin the river Po for one last time. It is a lot smaller now than it was in Turin. Lastly you ride into medieval Saluzzo where you will notice its Italian flair.

  • Day 4

    Saluzzo - Mondovi approx 55km

    Today’s stage is agriculturally rich. On the edge of the cycle path there are kiwis, apples and beans, which grow particularly well here. You cross several streams and the river Stura and then the scenery changes drastically. The last 10km to Mondovi are through lush green hills. Where you stay after today’s cycle knows how to impress with its wonderful Piazza Maggiore located in the upper town.

  • Day 5

    Mondovi - Millesimo approx 55km

    There are a few ascents for you to tackle in the first part of today’s route. This is because you leave the Tanaro river valley and make your way up a breathtaking high road into one of the most well-known vineyards within Piedmont. Enjoy the views over the Langhe hills. Grapevines, decidous trees and hazelnut bushes line your way to Liguria and Millesimo. The old town centre is considered to be one of the “Borghi piu belli d`Italia“, which means it is one of the nicest within Italy.

  • Day 6

    Millesimo - Albenga approx 60km

    The time has finally come! You are crossing the Alps! However the ascent is so gentle that you will hardly even notice it. It goes through the Bormida valley until you get to the top of the pass called Colle Scravaion. During a 30km long descent you will look down across the surrounding mountains and out to the sea. The first olive trees are lining the edge of your path. Maybe you fancy trying the particularly good smelling ligurian oil in the pituresque mountain village of Castelvecchio. One thing is certain - you will have an exhilarating descent towards the coast and before you know it you will be in Albenga. What is less well known by tourists is that Albenga has the second most significant old town in Liguria after Genoa. It sure will charm you with all of its restaurants in the narrow streets.

  • Day 7

    Albenga - San Remo approx. 20/30km + transfer

    Your last day’s cycle starts with a transfer to San Lorenzo al Mare. This is the starting point of one of Italy’s best cycle paths! Spectacular views of the turquoise blue sea along the Riviera of the Flowers are an absolutly cracking way to end your cycle tour. Enjoy the Ligurian sun on your bike before you get to San Remo. You should however keep cycling along the bike path. The 1.7km long bike tunnel running along part of the famous Milan to San Remo bike race is definitely worth seeing.
