OVERVIEW OF OUR PIEMONTE ROAD TRIP

Discover Piedmont’s pleasure of surprise. From its mountains to lakes, golden rice fields, vineyards, castle-perched hills and Islands, the Alpine region of Piedmont (meaning “foot of the mountain”) is an art, nature, wine and gastronomical paradise. Recently added to the Unesco World Heritage list, the wine landscapes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato are the source of Italy’s extraordinary wines and the inspiration behind generations of artists, poets and dreamers.

WHAT YOU WILL SEE DURING OUR PIEMONTE ROAD TRIP

When you first set foot in Turin’s Piazza San Carlo, your eyes will amaze at the elegant, spirited, extremely fascinating city that surrounds you. Veer off the beaten track a few kilometers. You will find yourself immersed in nature’s beauty, including the Alpine massifs, Monviso, Gran Paradiso, and Monte Rosa; discover the fantastic castle of Grinzane Cavour, drink wine in the local cellars dug into the rock, known as infernòt. Admire Asti’s fascinating historic center full of architectural jewels of the late Romanesque, Gothic and medieval era.

Take in the splendid city of Acqui Terme, nestled between rolling hills and famous since antiquity for the beneficial properties of its waters, as evidenced by the numerous visible thermal springs. Discover the Langhe and Barolo hills, world-famous for wines such as Barolo, Barbaresco, and its typical products, including cheeses and truffles, particularly the white truffles of Alba, and IGP hazelnuts. Alba is unquestionably the most representative city in the entire province of Cuneo and one of the most important cultural and economic centers in Piedmont. Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore offer a picturesque staging for the spectacular Borromean Islands. And finally explore Turin, the first capital of Italy and among the most vibrant cities of art in Europe, bursting in art and culture where Turin made Italy’s history.

WHY YOU CAN’T-MISS OUR PIEMONTE ROAD TRIP 

Piedmont is a gastronomic goldmine waiting to be discovered from its rice, cheese, wine, truffle, chocolate, olive oil, and hazelnut production. Piedmont’s history, traditions, art, nature, beautiful villages and culinary traditions make this region a diamond worth visiting all year round. In winter, it represents a ski lover’s go-to destination; in summer, it’s the preferred choice for hikers, bikers and walkers.
