If you’re looking for a more active tour of a wine region, how about biking? Not only can you get to see the region, towns, and vineyards at your own speed, but you can also wind around and make your own way though them! Sometimes it can be hard to track down and compare bike tours, but if you check out BikeSherpa.com you choose from tons of great choices.
You knew I’d be looking at the tour of Piedmont, taking a tour of Slow Food University and pedaling through the famed vineyards of Barolo -- Oh baby!
If that’s not your speed, no pun intended, or if you want to extend your Italian vacation, you can add another itinerary to your trip. Head down south to visit Tuscany and the vineyards of Chianti, Montalcino, and Montepulciano, or make your stay the best of two worlds and add a trip to Provence and the Rhone Valley, where you’ll take in the scenery and taste in some of France’s most famous wine regions. Bike Sherpa also has a great incentive program, so if you’re looking to travel with friends this is the place to make your plans!
