Dining at Villa San Carlo defines the "mangia bene" part of our slogan so we included a shot of last night's menu, while the rides around this area make sure we get plenty of the "pedala forte".

After two nights in Monterotondo we made our way into the Langhe hills and down to Cortemilia and Villa San Carlo. Poppies are still in bloom here due to the late arriving summer weather. Today's ride took us up the "wall" of Mombarcaro to our tour's "Cima Coppi" (highest elevation) but the climb was made easier by the cool temps and the sumptuous meal we enjoyed the night before.
