An itinerary to discover the Barolo lands, covered in vineyards and topped with medieval castles. Your guide will meet you after breakfast and you will leave for the panoramic tour, stopping in the most scenic villages of the Langhe.
At the end of the morning you will visit a wine cellar to taste the famous Barolo D.O.C.G. Then you will enjoy a typical lunch.
