The Piedmont is a region with relatively little tourism and therefore offers an authentic experience. Softly rolling hills, elegant castles, charming villages and Italian joie de vivre await you on this cycling tour. You will be based in the beautiful village Romano Canavese and from there explore cultural riches in Turin, as well as delicious Piedmont wines and fertile vines along the royal wine route. Go for a refreshing swim in one of the countless lakes. Large and small rivers accompany you on your daily cycle tours. The starting point for all your tours is the Hotel Relais Villa Matilde, which is housed in an 18th century villa.

Cycling Tour through Piedmont

Day 1: Individual arrival in Romano Canvese

You arrive in the small town Romano Canavese, which is nestled in the green hills of the Piedmont. It was founded in 100 BC as a Roman encampment. Today, only the tower remains of the antique castle. Get comfortable in your hotel, or go through a first stroll through the village.

Day 2: Excursion to Lago di Candia, approx. 40 km

The path takes you south along the river Dora Baltea. You will then reach the Candia Lake, a beautiful, almost untouched lake, which is protected as a nature reserve. Go for a refreshing swim, before continuing your journey and mastering the 4 km ascent to the moraine hills. Return to Romano Canavese along the royal wine route.

Day 3: Excursion to Ivrea, approx. 50 km

You will cycle north along the Dora Baltea. Enjoy the stunning views of the river landscape and go for a stroll through the medieval town centre of Ivrea. The town is known for its historic carnival and the traditional orange fight. Later on, you will cycle to two mountain lakes close to Ivrea. Make your way back along the ancient St. Francis path.

Day 4: Excursion to Turin, approx. 60 km + train ride

In the morning you will take the train to Torino, where there is so much to see: The Mole Antonelliana and the cathedral Duomo di San Giovanni are among the most beautiful buildings. After a tour of the city, a beautiful route along the river Po will lead you back to Romano Canavese. On the way, make sure to take a break in beautiful Chivasso and at the charming Castello Mazzo, from where the valley was guarded for many centuries.

Day 5: Excursion to Lago di Viverone, approx. 40 km

Those who are up for a challenge begin the day by mastering the very steep, 2 kilometre long ascent to the Castello di Masino. Alternatively, if you prefer an easy start you can cycle along softly rolling hills and small villages with historic buildings and small castles. There are many beautiful spots to go for a refreshing dip along Viverone’s lake promenade. Later on you will cycle back to Romano Canavese, past countless orchards.

Day 6: Excursion to the Moraine Hills, approx. 35 km

Cycle through cornfields to the majestic Castello di Pavone. The massive, double-reinforced castle walls enclose a charming courtyard and the fortress’ impressive main building. Afterwards you will master the ascent to the moraine hills. The last stretch of your journey runs along the royal wine route and will take back to Romano Canavese one last time after an exhilarating descent.

Day 7: Individual departure

After breakfast your cycling tour in Piedmont ends and you make your way back home.
