Piedmont

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.

Piedmont discover and experience

Truffles, wine and slow food

If you take a gourmet trip to Italy, Piedmont is the place to be. Thanks to the small family businesses, organic farming is particularly common, and Piedmontese cattle feed in the high valleys of the Kottian Alps. In Piedmont, the slow-food movement was born with a high food culture and the world’s best wines. The Alba truffle has gained world recognition. The Nutella brand is synonym for hazelnuts. And the Piedmont cherries are used to create the famous Mon Cheri pralines.

Hiking region

The valleys and the elevation of Piedmont still maintain original nature, fertile soils and juicy colours. An ideal area for active holidays, combined with natural and tasty food, the best wines in Italy and cultural treasures, which testify to the unmistakable tradition and high craftsmanship of the region.

On the hiking trails in the Alps as well as in the valleys with an Occitan tradition (Valle del Po, Valle Maira, Valle Varaita, Valle Stura, Valle di Susa) you rarely meet foreign tourists.

Cycling

Away from the cities, on narrow, little-traveled roads, you can enjoy the scent of nature and the view over the rolling hills with its wine slopes and peach plantations.

Cycling legend Fausto Coppi was born in a small village in the hills of Piedmont, he has gone down in the history of professional cycling as one of the greatest cyclists.

Ski

Thanks to its high elevations in the Alpine regions, Piedmont is an insider’s tip for Alpine ski tours and downhill ski. The region is actually only known for winter sports due to the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin.
