Monferrato is a territory of small villages, hills covered with vineyards, small woods and plowed fields. According to the rhythm of the seasons the landscape changes and with it the colors, the smells, the activities preserving the peasant spirit rooted in this land and its genes.
Every season is beautiful in Monferrato, but to explore these hills we believe that the best times are autumn and late spring, two seasons with wonderful colors and a climate favorable for hiking, walking and cycling.
Many routes of different difficulties and lengths can satisfy trekking and walking lovers. Through dirt roads, alleys of tuff villages and panoramic routes you can enjoy peace and tranquility, finding your own rhythm and discovering new views.
