What to see in Santo Stefano Belbo
During your e-bike day in Santo Stefano Belbo, you will follow the map we have constructed for you. We will try to show you the most surprising and exciting spots. But you can also devote a few hours in the evening or additional days to discover fascinating historical and artistic places. Here, I leave you with a few hints:
Historic center of Santo Stefano Belbo
It is a fascinating maze of cobblestone streets and stone houses that will transport you back in time. Getting lost in the narrow streets and admiring traditional architecture is an unforgettable experience. The town of Santo Stefano Belbo has a very ancient history; shortly after 1000, there was already a settlement. Its strategic location in the Belbo Valley justifies this. We know there must have been a military fortification on the road connecting Asti and Alba with the Riviera di Ponente in Liguria.
We know that a congregation of Benedictine monks introduced the cultivation of vines on their estates.
The ruins of one of the towers tell us of the existence of an ancient castle.
The Cesare Pavese Museum
Santo Stefano Belbo is the birthplace of writer Cesare Pavese. The Cesare Pavese Museum is dedicated to the life and works of this celebrated author. You can immerse yourself in his story, explore his childhood home, and learn more about his contribution to Italian literature.
The vines and vineyards
The area around Santo Stefano Belbo is famous for producing fine wines. During your E-bike tour, you can ride through lush vineyards and vines that stretch as far as the eye can see. You will be able to admire the different varieties of grapes and breathe in the fresh air of the countryside. Moscato, first of all, that wine that has been “the party” for many generations! Today also declined in a dry version, which is a real treat|
The Church of St. Stephen Protomartyr
The Church of St. Stephen Protomartyr is an exciting place to visit. A religious building that dates back to the 14th century, it features fascinating Gothic architecture. Inside, you can admire works of sacred art and be won over by the spiritual atmosphere of the place.
The hills and breathtaking views
Santo Stefano Belbo is surrounded by sometimes steep hills but mostly gentle. Colors that change with the seasons. Each month will be a new stage for your e-bike tour.
What to do in Santo Stefano Belbo? The e-bike tour
One of the exciting ways to explore Santo Stefano Belbo is precisely through an E-bike tour. E-bikes, or electric bicycles, are a fun and sustainable way to get around and enjoy the landscapes without too much effort. These innovative bikes have an electric motor that helps you while pedaling, making the experience even more enjoyable.
With an e-bike, you can cover 30 to 40 kilometers (I remind you that we are Slow!) but at a walking speed that will allow you to savor unique corners and stop to enjoy the scenery you will find around every bend. There will be climbs for sure; the Langhe is like that, but with an e-bike, you can face them confidently.
For your tour, we recommend bringing:
Sportswear, comfortable shoes, and the desire to enjoy a particular day.
In case of bad weather (e.g., rainfall expected by the website of Meteo Aeronautica 48 hours before the event with a probability greater or equal to 50%), it will be possible to:
– postpone the experience by agreeing on a new date at no extra charge
– Cancel and receive a refund of the amount you paid net of 15 eur per person for organizational costs
Please refer to the general conditions for other situations you wish to cancel.
All tour details and addresses will be communicated after the confirmation and payment of the tour.
