A day out by Vespa in the Monferrato and Roero
Curve after curve towards the hills, the vineyards, the sweet and evocative landscapes, without forgetting great cuisine
The landscape of the Monferrato is a succession of rolling hills, neat vineyards, villages and castles, with the mountains in the background.
There is no better way to explore such an enchanting territory than to get on a Vespa and set off on little beaten roads, away from any traffic, and travel calmly, with an expert guide who knows the best routes.
We will meet in Canale, a charming and quiet village in the Roero area, to become familiar with the Vespas without any traffic and without hurry, and then descend towards Fontanile, where the view sweeps north over the Alps and south over the Ligurian Apennines. We will go further east to Maranzana, the 'village of babaciu' and then climb to Calosso for a tasty lunch with a spectacular view of the hills. You will not miss a tasty and typical lunch, an opportunity not to be missed in these areas so renowned for their cuisine.
Then we will discover the Roero with Priocca, Castellinaldo and Govone, home of the beautiful Castle that is part of the circuit of the Savoy Residences, before starting the journey back to Canale where we will end our day with a chat over a glass of wine.
Total kms: about 150

Per questo tour utilizzeremo una Vespa LX-125 (il 'vespino').
Leggera e maneggevole, si guida con la patente B e rappresenta l'immagine classica della Vespa dei nostri sogni.
Adesso immaginatevi su stradine secondarie nelle Langhe, lontano dalla città e dal caos, con l'aria che vi scorre addosso e non vi fa sentire il caldo di una giornata estiva, mentre il sole illumina il verde delle vigne e fa maturare i grappoli preziosi...
Viaggiare con il vento nei capelli sarebbe forse ancora più romantico, ma per la nostra sicurezza (e come prescrive il codice della strada) l'uso del casco (compreso nel costo di noleggio della vespa) è obbligatorio. E' anche compreso tutto il carburante per la giornata.
The price of the trip, of 89 euros per person (you can ride a Vespa with two people, driver and passenger), includes:
- guidance and assistance throughout the day on the roads
- a final wine toast (at the end of the tour, when all the driving has been done and the Vespa returned)
You can come with your own vespa, or rent one from us for 99 euros, including:
- Vespa LX 125-rental for the whole day
