Discover a spectacular array of local specialties including gourmet cheeses, pastries and chocolates that are appreciated the world over.

A transfer takes you to Roddi or Verduno (to shorten the walk).

You can visit the museum in the Castello dei Marchesi Falettiand the Regional wine museum, a must for any wine connoisseur. After a varying walk through the vineyards and forests, you arrive in Monforte d'Alba, a nice hill top village.

Day 4:    From Monforte d'Alba to Cissone, 15 km

The landscape is far more varied than on the previous days as you leave the vineyards behind and climb through tidy hazelnut forests and wild woods surrounding the ancient hamlet of Serralunga d’Alba. From here a steep climb brings you to Roddino from where a long descent takes you to the final climb up to Cissone

Distance: 15 km

Elevation gain: +806/ -665 m

Day 5:    Cissone round walk, 8 km

A glass of local wine from a traditional "cantina" in the centre of the village is a lovely way to celebrate this day of relaxing and taking it easy. After a short circular walk in the neighborhood of Cissone, unwind and admire the splendid views from the farm. The scenery is a unique spectacle, embroidered with vineyards and dotted with towers and castles.

Distance: 8 km

Elevation gain: +300/-300 m

Day 6:    From Cissone to Cravanzana, 20 km o 13 km

The landscape of the high Langhe area around Cissone is characterised by hazelnut forests and those slopes that are too steep to be cultivated are covered by oaks. This is also the area where you find the most precious of the local treasure: the ‘Tuber Magnatum’, also known as ‘the white truffle of Alba’ and, if you don’t find it underground, you are sure to find it at the local restaurant.

Distance: 20 km o 13 km

Elevation gain: +600/-665 m

Day 7:    From Cravanzana to Cortemilia, 13 km

Today the landscape is as varied as the walk itself. You visit the villages of Torre Bormida and Bergolo that you reach crossing hazelnut plantations and dense chestnut woods using broad forest paths, small grassy trails and narrow cobbled streets until you reach the town of Cortemilia. On clear days the view on the hills and the Alps is breath-taking.
