1. Hiking and wine tour starting from Alba
The hiking tour starting in Alba, the Langhe capital, passes through the hills around the town providing walkers with a vantage point to enjoy a panorama overlooking the surrounding hills and valleys. Wine assumes a unique importance in this region. The Piedmont vineyard landscape is undoubtedly one of the most harmonious and most consistent with the ideal of a “scenic” rural and vineyard landscape, accentuated by the gently rolling hills that provide many vistas and panoramas with subtle nuances. In the middle of walking, just on the top of the hill, the winery waits you for a delicious wine tasting with small bites of traditional local products. This tour is indicated for tourists that arrive in Alba by pubblic transportation especially and without a car. This tour is recommended for people in good shape, used to walk uphill. Appropriate footwear is suggested. Length: about 6 km – 3.7 mi. - Elevation gain: 350 m – 1148 ft. The winery can change following the availability.
