Langhe, Barolo to Barbarsco - 8 days

Known as a food and wine paradise for its distinctive white truffles, gourmet cheeses, the best hazelnuts in Italy and prestigious wines, Piedmont has many delicious reasons to merit this title. In fact, the entire region is a true paradise, but perhaps the Langhe and Barolo are its most delightful destinations: tucked between the Alps and the Apennines, these areas are pilgrimage destinations for food and wine lovers all over the globe. But we invite you to explore them on foot: walking among the undulating hills covered with rows of vineyards, dotted with villages, castles, and feudal towers makes the landscape even more captivating.

This journey follows the path of the Bar to Bar, connecting two of the finest wine places par excellence through enchanting landscapes, welcoming villages and endless labels to taste: our journey begins in Alba, the city of truffles, and takes us through hilltop villages, old taverns, farmhouses and vineyards, passing by the charming villages of Barolo and Barbaresco and the wines that have made their names famous throughout the world.
