Sightseeing
 
Sightseeing

Sightseeing is an obvious activity while in the Langhe given the many well restored medieval hill top towns within a short drive from Barolo. Some of my favourites include Monforte d'Alba (charming piazza), La Morra (best view of valley), Serralunga d'Alba (pretty castle), Diano d'Alba (quaint with stunning views) and Grinzane Cavour (imposing/impressive castle). At Grinzane Cavour, I recommend touring the castle and then spending some time in the enoteca that stocks a vast selection of the region's best vintners. Don't miss out though on taking a coffee/aperitif in the bar at the castle......the view is framed beautifully through the large window.
Alba
 
Alba

The Saturday morning market in Alba is also a favourite of mine, but don't get there too late as all the stalls are packed up by midday. There is a huge covered food market area that sells fruit / veg / poultry / meats / cheese / olives / flowers etc. From my experience, the vendors are happy to let you sample some of their local cheese to aid in your decision as many of the cheeses might be new to you as local to the area. As with all Italian village markets, there are numerous stalls that sells clothes, homeware etc, though I have not found anything noteworthy from those vendors, but it is still fun to have a look while eating some freshly baked focaccia from the bakery.
Hiking/hill walks
 
Hiking/hill walks

From the tower, you can easily set off on three trails (sentieri) that will take you through towns and vineyards. As many of the trails cut through and over the vineyards, we recommend sturdy footwear and an average level of fitness. These trails can take you in the direction of either Monforte d'Alba, La Morra or Castiglione Falletto. The shortest one is to hike to Monforte d'Alba (40mins) and then you can enjoy a lunch in the pretty town square before heading back to Barolo.
Golf
 
Golf

A new addition to the area is a stunning golf resort located less than 10 minutes from the center of Barolo in the commune of Vergne. The resort offer a driving range, plus 18 holes. There is a pro shop, a spa facility and a restaurant on site. For more information visit: Vigne del Barolo Golf Resort & Spa
Wine tasting
 
Wine tasting

Each winery has its own policies and hours. I recommend you contact the winery directly. However, one easy suggestion is the Marchesi dei Barolo, as it is only a 5min walk from TorreBarolo. They provide tours and tastings. This site is useful as a directory for all the winemakers in the area: Piemonte on Wine
