Italy's Secret.

Piedmont, in the north of Italy is a real gem for cyclists. The region is only for those in the know, and offers travellers an area that is authentic and untouched. In the Canavese region you will not only find historic castles, but also typical fine wines of Italy. There is a reason why the wine route bears the name ‘Strada Reale dei Vini’. This cycling holiday in northern Italy is particularly suitable for beginners and leisure cyclists due to the easy route. You will be amazed by Canavese, a small part of Italy that has been largely untouched by tourism so far.

Itinerary

The hotel staff at the reception desk will provide you with tour information and rental bikes. Afterwards, you still have enough time for a walk through the medieval town. 

Your first bike tour will lead you on attractive trails along the river Dora Baltea to the South. Soon you will have reached the beautifully situated lake Candia. The lake invites you to jump into its clear water. After a long climb (4 km) you will reach the top of the moraine hills from which you will have a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Along the royal wine route, you will get back to your hotel. 

Through meadows and fields, today's stage leads you to Ivrea. The river Dora Baltea has dug a deep riverbed, offering spectacular views. After a short rest in the medieval city centre, you will continue your tour to two mountain lakes nearby. Romantically, they invite you to swim for some time. Later, you will return to your hotel, cycling along the old Franciscan Road, which was an important pilgrimage route for the monks to Rome.

In the morning, you will take the train to the capital city of Turin. Here, not only the great Piazza Vittorio Veneto will impress you. There is a lot to be discovered in this lively city. A nice bike path along the river Po leads back to the North. In Chiavasso, you should stop for some time. In the small town on the river Po, with its little sidewalk cafes, real Italian lifestyle is lived. The road back to your hotel leads past the castle Castello Mazze from which the valley had been guarded for centuries. 

Very athletic cyclists may visit the impressive castle Castello di Masino at the beginning of the tour (very steep rise for approx. 2 km). If you prefer a more relaxed daytrip, you can follow the route over gently rolling hills and through small towns with historical churches and small castles. You will also get nice opportunities for swimming and sunbathing at the lake promenade in Viverone. Later, you will continue your tour through an agricultural landscape. Kiwis, peaches and grapes are grown right along the bike course. 

Through corn fields, today's tour leads you to Castello Pavone. After a short climb, you will reach the top of the moraine hills. Nice views of the valley will compensate for the climbs you had to conquer. Small castles can be seen cycling along the royal wine route. After an exhilarating downhill ride, you will again reach your wellness hotel. 

Tour character

The daytrips include flat and hill stages. Every day there are one or two shorter climbs to be cycled. During the whole tour you will only come across one longer climb of approx. 4 km. You will cycle mostly on side and service roads, partly on cycle paths, but predominatly on asphalted roads. In cities and on short connecting roads, traffic is unfortunately unavoidable.
