Every moment is good for visiting Piedmont by camper, but the Ognissanti bridge is a very special opportunity to experience a weekend of tastings and cultural visits.
If you say Piedmont, you immediately think of the fine Piedmont wines, but also of the hilly landscapes that in autumn enjoy perhaps the most beautiful colors. However, there are not only wines, but also rich cuisine and top quality cheeses. Here are our tips for your campervan trip in Piedmont.
By camper in Piedmont: our stops
- Royal Castle of Racconigi
The first stop on our trip was the Royal Castle of Racconigi, included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
There are numerous rooms that can be visited in the two wings, as well as the Park deserves a walk that becomes really pleasant with the sunset lights.
From Racconigi we resume the march to go to Brà: mandatory stop at the famous cheese fair.
In the morning we leave again and we address to Pollenzo, to discover the beautiful village.
The walk through the village is very pleasant, above all because young students and gastronomy scholars meet everywhere.
Very nice to get lost in the vaulted cellars of the nineteenth century, to be lulled by the late great tasting (with a separate ticket).
Positive note: dogs are welcome here.
We leave Pollenzo and head towards Cherasco, to discover a typical product: let’s talk about snails!
We walk through a center really rich in history, and to get lost in the maze of narrow streets all parallel and perpendicular to the main streets, where buildings, museums and churches symbol of this town stand.
But it’s time for lunch, so let’s evaluate some restaurants and choose one to taste the famous snails and bagna cauda, typical dishes of the Langhe.
We leave to go into the hilly landscape covered with vines, typical of this area. We recommend a visit to the WiMu, and to the renowned cellars in the village that carry out guided tours right in their basements.
- La Morra
After Barolo we move to La Morra: we spend the evening and night in a campsite with an adjoining B&B immersed in a property of winegrowers; we had been here years ago and it is a great place to stop traveling in the Langhe. La Morra has a beautiful and valid Municipal Cellar where you can taste fine labels.
- Castiglione Falletto
From Morra we move to Castiglione Falletto: walks in the village completely immersed in the vines, to the medieval castle and a stop for taste at the Municipal Historical Cellar, located at the foot of the Castle.
- Serralunga d’Alba
The village and the castle here too are the masters of the panorama that opens to our eyes.
- Grinzane Cavour
Home to the Piedmont Regional Enoteca of Cavour, but above all to the World Alba Truffle Auction!
Asti means tasting and buying Barbera and Moscato d’Asti.
Alba Truffle Fair
It is an explosion of scents of cheese and truffles, inevitable are the tastings of cheeses and wine tastings and some purchases always happen.
The guided tour of Alba Sotterranea is inevitable, if booked in time, long before.
Unmissable visit to the Beccaris distillery, to the Gancia Castle and absolutely to be seen are the underground historic cellars.
This beautiful trip in a camper van is now over.
During the return trip regarding the numerous photos, we exchange opinions and we think that this Italy of ours is truly fantastic, from small villages, as well as large historic cities, and traveling by camper makes everything even more special!
We will be back soon, it really enchanted us all.
