A unique chain of hotels that cater specifically for cyclists has been established in the province of Cuneo, where cyclists may find assistance, hospitality, bicycles and above all a map with all the cycle tracks that lead to the discovery of artistic treasures, nature reserves and eating-places that offer local wine and food.

Each track is described in detail and comes complete with a technical sheet of the inclines, plus it offers two options: a simple level with short distances and less strenuous inclines and a more demanding level for more experienced cyclists.

Hotel Portici was one of the initial promoters of this project and can now offer all these services to the guests that stay there.
This is not the only feature offered by the owners of Hotel Portici.

They noticed in the past that their guests had often shown much interest in the surrounding land and local traditions, therefore the owners have studied various routes that can be enjoyed on foot, by car, on horseback or by bicycle. These trips reveal the various and remarkable aspects of the province of Cuneo.

There are different routes that take from two days to a number of days to enjoy, both for individuals or groups.

Artistic routes that range from the Gothic period of San Fiorenzo di Bastia to the work of art of Andrea Pozzo, in the Missionary church of Mondovì and the architectural works of Francesco Gallo, who created the wonderful dome of the Vicoforte Sanctuary.
