Langhe e Roero

Overview

In the green heart of Piedmont 

The green heart of the region, the Langhe is an area between the provinces of Cuneo, Asti and Alessandria and makes up lower Piedmont, together with Monferrato and Roero. Among hills and vineyards, you are sure to enjoy exploring the succession of medieval villages, starting with Alba, which is nicknamed the “city of a hundred towers” because of its fortifications and world-famous for its prized white truffles. A few kilometres away is the medieval Castle of Serralunga d’Alba. Continuing along the same road is the Castello Falletti di Barolo, from which you can admire stunning views over the hills. As you head back, be sure to stop by the Enoteca Regionale del Barolo wine bar for a delicious glass of red wine. In July, Barolo hosts the Collisioni Festival, one of the most renowned music events in northern Italy. Meanwhile, it you prefer to explore wilder, and more unspoilt areas, the Alta Longa is the perfect destination for you, with its barren hills where vineyards give way to hazelnut groves. 

Moving on to Roero, we recommend visiting the Castle of Guarene and Bra, which is famous for being a town of cheese as well as the cradle of Baroque style in Piedmont. Don’t miss the Rocche del Roero⁠—canyons created 250,000 years ago by the deviation of the Tanaro river. From here, the Great Roero Trail, which runs from Bra to Cisterna d’Asti, offers an unforgettable nature experience.
