Capitalised by the historic city of Turin, Piedmont is a diverse region of Italy, tipped by the snowy peaks of the Alps to the north and underlined by the maritime Alps.
The name Piedmont actually means the foot of the mountains and a trip here will draw a tremendous degree of appreciation from you. The environment and scenery is gorgeous and includes plenty of rolling vine covered hillside terrain which is an absolute joy for hiking during most months of the year.
Some of the finest vineyards in the world are located here too and if you're in search of delicious white truffles, Piedmont is the perfect destination to take a break. What's more, the automobile manufacturer Fiat is based here and there are numerous relics and museums in the area which pay homage to this heritage.
Stunning Alpine peaks prevail in this stunning region of Italy, so if you can stretch to a visit to Monte Rosa, the spent energy will be well worth the reward. Gaze out over miles of stunning Italian countryside and have your camera ready for features like the Tanaro Valley and Langhe Hills.
No visit to Piedmont should be completed without visiting the regional capital, Turin and this city will really open your eyes to the rich art and history culture here; there are plenty of villas situated on the outskirts of the city and they offer surroundings of rolling hills and a backdrop of the Alps.
