What to see in the Langhe: find out more

In this article, we want to provide a small guide focused on what to see in the Langhe, a green and unspoiled area where many people decide to go on vacation to spend a relaxing stay immersed in nature and under the banner of wine and food tours.

What to see in the Langhe?

There are many places of interest in this area of Piedmont, home of good wine and truffles: hills full of vineyards, medieval villages, museums and historic wineries.

What to see in the Langhe: Alba

Alba, capital of the Langhe and recognized by UNESCO in 2017 as a creative city for gastronomy: is located on the right bank of the Tanaro River and was originally an important Roman settlement called “Alba Pompeia.”

A veritable treasure chest of fine products, from white truffles to albese raw meat via tajarin, very thin egg noodles, and ravioli del plin.

Not only gastronomy but also breathtaking scenery: Alba is characterized by lush fields in hilly areas that, thanks to favorable climatic conditions, are able to foster the growth of grapes with special organoleptic properties.

Among the native grape varieties we can certainly mention Nebbiolo d’Alba, Dolcetto, Barbera and Dogliani: all these fine wines give life to a festival dedicated to Bacchus and called “Vinum” in which it is possible to tour the best wineries in Alba.

What to see in the Langhe? The most characteristic villages

The whole territory of the Langhe is dotted with characteristic villages located on the hills, among the most famous we can certainly mention:

  • La Morra
  • Barolo
  • Barbaresco
  • Neive

La Morra is absolutely worth visiting because the view from its Belvedere is something unique and sensational. A square overlooking the vineyard-rich hills.

Places to visit include the Barolo Chapel, near the winery owned by the Cordero di Montezemolo family, and the Cedar of Lebanon.

Barolo is located in the heart of the Langhe and is world famous for its wine-a unique landscape that deserves a stop for a few photo shoots.

In this village you can visit the Wi-Mu, the wine museum and the small Corkscrew Museum.

Barbaresco, after which another prized wine of the Langhe is named, is a magnificent painting-like village, and the view from the Tower is breathtaking: we recommend visiting the Barbaresco Regional Enoteca and the historic Gaja winery.

Neive, located a few kilometers from Alba, is a medieval village with narrow alleys leading to the Clock Tower; here we can taste four fantastic wines: Barbaresco, Barbera, Moscato and Dolcetto.

This village seems to have stood still in time: a walk through its streets will take you back to the past.
