Welcome Spring! A spectacular, scenic and scenic route that opens the gaze beyond the hills of the Barolo Langa, there in the West, where the Stone Giant dominates the horizon and where the Maritime Alps brush against the Apennines behind the Sea.

An Easter dayoutdoors and in good company.

The route begins in the historic center of Novello, an ancient terziere of the Marquis Del Carretto family, who controlled a large part of the territory from the height of their medieval castle.

After walking the Rising Sun Trail and admired the spectacular view of Monforte and the villages of the Langa del Barolo, we will begin to walk the San Nicola Rocks Trail through a quiet grove where we can admire the colorful spring blooms and proceeding westward we will have a chance to admire the valley carved by the Tanaro River, the foothill villages and the Alpine arc.

We will touch points of geological, historical, and scenic interest and return to Novello by walking a very scenic loop. We will consume our lunch break along the way at a picturesque place.

The Wines of the Territory and the White Queen

A pleasant convivial conclusion to the celebration of Easter.

After the hike, it is possible to refresh yourself and taste the excellent local wine at the Novello Municipal Winery or other very valid and nice places provided with a terrace. It is recommended, especially if the day is warm, to taste Nas-cetta, a white, fresh and pleasant wine typical of the area. At the start we will talk about it together!
