     Once you have explored Turin and toured up the Po via historic Chivasso and Mazzé to the main base for your stay, there is a choice of excellent circular rides exploring the historic towns and villages, castles, vineyards and wildlife-rich lakelands of Piedmont’s Canavese area.

     Following your stay in a luxury hotel in central Turin, your base on this holiday is the Relais Villa Matilde, a luxury 4 star hotel which sits in its own peaceful parklands in the centre of the medieval village of Romano Canavese. Elegant yet intimate, it blends wonderful Piedmontese history with modern day comfort and also offers a range of leisure facilities including an outdoor pool, a wellness centre and tennis court.

Take time to sit out on the Piazza Castello, the historic heart of the city and admire the rich architectural offerings - from Baroque and Rococo to Neo-classical and Art Nouveau. Overnight Turin.

Day Two – Up the River Po to Romano Canavese
     Pedal up the River Po past some impressive castles to explore historic Chiavasso and Mazzé en route to Roman Canavese where you can relax by the pool or take time to stroll around the historic gateways, palaces and castle fortifications of the town.

The circular rides:

     Once in Romano Canavese, we offer a choice of 4 circular routes with distances between 23 and 31 miles (35 to 50 kms), with each ride carefully planned to make sure you see the best of the area and that you travel the distance you are most comfortable with.

     You can go with the flow of your energy levels southwards along the Dora Baltea river to the clear waters of Lake Candia, then enjoy superb vineyard views from the top of the Moraine hills, returning to Romano Canavese via the ‘Strada Reale dei Vini’ – the Royal Wine Route. Head up to the imposing castle towers of Ivrea and its little lakes, following the Franciscan pilgrimage route homeward or pick your way through kiwi and peach plantations on the return from Lake Viverone. The 9th century Castello Pavone is worth the climb and Pavone village, set on its rocky slopes offers Piedmontese Baroque at its finest.

     All of the routes offer excellent cycling and there are plenty of opportunities to stop for refreshments.
