Langhe Roero Monferrato: Tourism, traditions, food and wine

Langhe Roero Monferrato: For all tastes. A guide to conscious tourism, without pretending to want to describe everything, but with a lot of love for my land:  A day, a weekend, or an entire holiday!

Our guide through Langhe Roero and Monferrato to answer the questions I am most frequently asked in my work:

Where is the Langhe? What to see in the Langhe? What is Langhe? Langhe Roero Monferrato: what are the differences?

I just want to tell you what I’ve seen so far and what I love and what I include in the Langhe Roero Monferrato itineraries and offer to my friends/guests/customers.
I will update it with my new discoveries!

Our guide for tourism, but thought for the tourist, in Langhe Roero Monferrato.

First of all, let’s answer the question: Where is the Langhe? In Piedmont. They are located between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti. The Langhe border and merge with Monferrato and Roero. The Langhe are gentle hills and also rivers: Tanaro, Belbo, Bormida di Millesimo and Bormida di Spigno.


A few brief remarks will give you an idea of the differences between the territories:

In 2014 the wine-growing landscape of Langhe Monferrato and Roero was listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site: since then tourism has been increasing and getting better organized, without losing authenticity and the possibility of still discovering many places that are not included in the tourist guides and living unique experiences.

An area with many faces: nature for outdoor experiences, history, and culture with interesting and surprising visits, and, of course, food and wine with extraordinary dishes and wines that cannot leave anyone indifferent.

Discovering the territory

We at SlowDays have three ways of discovering the area: first of the food and wine of the Langhe, then an inviting range of excursions and walking itineraries, and for those who are looking for some original ideas, our proposals for experiencing the Langhe Roero Monferrato by Ebike or on a splendid Vespa.

The three proposals are often confused with each other: it is almost a must to have pleasant stops during a walk or cycle ride. Just as visiting wine cellars in the Langhe can be a worthy interlude to visits to castles, villages, and churches.

Langhe itineraries: Quality time tourism

Tourism in Langhe has been growing strongly for several years now. Careful policies aimed at preserving the land and embellishing the vineyards have created panoramas photographed by tourists from all over the world. Carefully maintained villages have become welcoming living rooms. Tourists have flocked to Alba, the capital of the Langhe, for the various events that take place throughout the year. But Bra, with the SlowFood movement, is also a major attraction at many times of the year.

The Langhe and Roero grow quite close together and transparently exchange tourists: all you have to do is cross the Tanaro and you find yourself constantly changing areas.

Langhe and Monferrato seem, even to the eyes of those who live there, to be two more ‘distinct’ areas. Slightly different traditions create wonderful nuances that the most attentive tourists can recognize and appreciate.

Choose this territory for your holiday!

This guide is intended to stimulate those who have heard of these areas and to invite them to spend a holiday discovering these apparently somewhat “closed” lands, but which are capable of great generosity in offering themselves to the eyes of the visitor.
