E14 Visiting Langhe without a car
From today, you can visit Langhe without a car: using a train and an e-bike.
1) Take the train from Turin or Milan. In Turin, choose the Torino Porta Susa station and at platform 5 you will find the trains that go to Alba, every hour. These trains are new, usually very punctual and clean. The ticket price is € 4.6. (www.trenitalia.it)
2) After arriving in Bra, you can decide whether to enjoy the small town of Slow Food, take a walk downtown, or stop for an aperitif in the streets of the old town. If you arrive the night before, you can stay overnight at the Hotel Cavalieri, which is also bike-friendly.
3) We can deliver the e-bikes to Bra (at the station or at the Hotel Cavalieri), and from there you can follow a route, almost all on secondary roads, which allows you to visit Cherasco, Narzole, Novello, La Morra. We rent e-bikes in the Langhe and Bra.
Follow our app!
The distance between Bra and Langhe is about 15 km, but we advise you not to follow the signs for cars or google maps because you will end up in very busy streets and you will not enjoy the route. We have developed for you a route that usually passes on secondary roads and makes it possible for you to visit ancient villages, farms, and canals.
You can take a day trip, or stop to sleep in one of the e-bike-friendly hotels or B&B you can find in Langhe.
And on the way back?
4) The return to Bra passes through La Morra, from the village of Rivalta and allows you to visit Pollenzo, the royal estate that is home to the Università del Gusto, the Banca del Vino and a very pleasant historical center from the Roman era. After Pollenzo, the road climbs towards the famous gardens of Bra – from that point, you can start moving to the station.
Are you arriving by plane?
If you arrive by plane in Turin, you can take the BUS that from Turin Caselle Airport will take you to the Torino Porta Susa train station (it is a journey of about 30 mins, available at all hours of the day).If you come to Milan or Bergamo, you can reach Turin by train or bus.
Do you prefer to arrive in Alba, the heart of Nutella production?
Soon we will prepare a route and recommendations for visiting Langhe starting from there.
