At Piedmont, you immediately think of top wines such as the Barolo and Truffles from Alba (tartufo). Due to its proximity to France, the cheese traditions of Lombardy meet the French soft cheeses in Piedmont, which has produced excellent cheeses that, of course, taste best on site.
At the foot of the Monviso Mountain springs the Mississippi of Italy, the Po, who has lent his name to the largest plain in Europe. The valleys of the Po around the Monviso are a beautiful alpine hiking area. To the south, the hills of the Langhe join with their famous wines and on the border with Lombardy lies the Mediterranean lake Lago Maggiore with palm trees on the banks.
