Why coosing piedmont for your holiday in Italy

From the rich historical and cultural heritage to the natural wonders, from the Savoy castles to the hills with their inestimable food and wine tradition, here are all the places not to be missed in Piedmont.

Piedmont lends itself to family holidays, romantic weekends, art-filled trips and nature adventures with friends. Thanks to its variety of landscapes, cities, towns, mountains, lakes and rivers it offers fascinating alternatives for every type of traveler and at any time of the year.

If winter is obviously the season of snow-covered slopes and in summer you seek refreshment among the Piedmontese lakes and islands, the shoulder seasons are the ideal time to explore museums, works of art, castles and romantic medieval villages.

Tour of Turin, magical and mysterious. The regional capital oozes history and art at every corner. It has some of the most important museums in our country, iconic architecture such as the Mole Antonelliana and Palazzo Madama, sacred relics such as the Shroud.

Obviously a guided tour of Turin is the best way to explore its beauties and a tour of its museums is almost an obligatory stop. But it is in the less accessible places that it reveals its ethereal and fantastic soul. A tour of underground Turin will take you to discover the Savoy legends and the catacombs under the oldest churches, the 18th century tunnels and the secrets of the infernos hidden under the Baroque palaces.

If you appreciate nature and outdoor activities, Piedmont is the right location for your holidays at any time of the year. The park of Lake Candia and that of the Avigliana lakes attract tourists who love greenery thanks to their incredible variety of fauna and the flowers that cover and surround them, in particular the suggestive aquatic water lilies.

If you prefer the mountains, Sestriere will capture your attention. Here you ski along the so-called Via Lattea, one of the largest ski resort areas in our country. Another important stop on a tour of Piedmont is the Val di Susa, whose changing colors will captivate you even in spring and summer. Without forgetting the king of the Piedmontese mountains: the majestic Monte Rosa.

A tour of Piedmont in summer cannot fail to pass through the splendid islands, which offer breathtaking views and historical treasures of great value. Lake Maggiore, with its picturesque shore villages and beaches, reveals the hidden gems of the Borromean Islands: villas and lush gardens that seem to float on the water. Also worth seeing is Lake Orta, a romantic setting inspiration of artists and writers for centuries with its sunsets.

In the surroundings of Turin and throughout Piedmont there are places of historical and architectural interest that are worth seeing. Obviously, the Royal Palace of Venaria is unmissable with its wonderful gardens and the shows, concerts and events during summer.

Just outside Turin there is Palazzina di Stupinigi, home to the king’s hunting trips in the immense lands that belonged to the Savoy family. Around the Val di Susa, the forts of Exilles and Fenestrelle tell of less romantic atmospheres, but fundamental to the history of Italy.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Langhe area, in Piedmont, is a suggestive area absolutely worth visiting and not only for its renowned and fine wines. Postcard landscapes, good cuisine and small villages… all this and much more is hidden in the rolling hills of the Langhe. Located in the province of Cuneo, not far from Turin, the Langhe are an ideal destination for a romantic weekend, for a day trip or for a longer holiday in which to indulge in culinary tastings, outdoor sports and moments of relaxation.

Barolo is the heart of the Langhe, famous throughout the world for the wine of the same name which is the protagonist here. The small village can be reached along roads that run alongside the vineyards, among hills and scenery that deserve a stop for some photographic shots. Barolo is a pleasant town, with its wine bars where you can taste the fine wine, visits to the historic wine cellars and the possibility of admiring the Faletti Castle of Barolo located on the top of the village from which you can enjoy an incredible scenic view. Inside you can visit the Wi-Mu, wine museum, and right in front you can visit the small, very curious Corkscrew museum. Also in Barolo, for several years, the cultural festival “Collisioni” has been held, bringing numerous Italian and international stars to these lands.


It is impossible not to mention Alba, the capital of the Langhe and certainly a place worth mentioning and starting from to discover these areas. A pleasant town, with a very lively centre, Alba is famous throughout the world because every year, from October to November, the Truffle Fair takes place here, the prized tuber which is then auctioned for incredible sums.

Neive is truly one of the most characteristic places in the Langhe and is also one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Small streets that lead to a lovely town center and a breathtaking view of the hills below. Neive seems suspended in time and it is pleasant to treat yourself to a stop in one of the wineries present. In autumn you can admire the façade of the Aromatario, a hotel and restaurant, covered in colored leaves.
