Langhe in summer scenery

The Langhe is flourishing and glowing with colors.Wherever you look you will see waving hills covered by green coat of maturing grapes and old towns decorated with flower pots. The sun is beating down heating the temperature till 37 Celsius degrees and cicadas’ songs are carried by the hot air. Hotels, restaurants, squares are crowded by tourists, vineyards attract wine lovers and towns and cities organize concerts, music festivals and numerous barbeques encouraging – both townspeople and visitors –  to spend evenings under the sky. Below you will find some pictures I have taken some time ago during my escapades in southern Piedmont.
