Walking Piedmont Day 5, Cissone Loop walk, Italy: May 17, 2019

Since we're spending two nights in Cissone, today we don't really have to go anywhere. We already saw Cissone in five minutes last night so we decided to take a 8.54km/5.3mi loop hike that took us to the little hill town of Serravalle Langhe at an elevation of 737 meters.

Despite the overcast skies, the walk was beautiful with wildflowers most of the way. The hills are dotted with hazelnut orchards.

We found a cafe and warmed ourselves with hot chocolate and cake before we strolled through Serravalle Langhe and onward toward Cissone.

With all the wildflowers in the area it is a perfect place for keeping bees.

We arrived back in Cissone just as it was beginning to rain. We had another great dinner at Balcone sulle Langhe. Tomorrow we move on.
