All our Piedmont Collections:
Piedmont is as it 'says on the tin', 'at the foot of the mountains', beginning at the beautiful Alpine border between France, Switzerland and Italy. Below the spectacular ski fields is Turin, with its Fiats and many museums (where you'll find many of the best places to stay in Piedmont), and a smattering of elegant towns, many with their own impressive palazzi - this region was once a collection of feuding fiefdoms. But at the region's heart are the wonderful farms and vineyards, which fuel Piedmont with their world renowned flavours.
Because Turin is the main hub, many people start exploring Piedmont from here. Of course you'll also be rewarded for looking farther afield.
As well as sharing a border with one of Europe's most spectacular ski fields, Piedmont is also close enough to Tuscany to share some of this region's rustic, rural beauty. It helps that both regions are so visually dominated by the striking rows of vines, producing, in Piedmont's case the Barolos, Barberas, Barbarescos and Moscato D'Astis which decorate local menus so deliciously, and are so well known world wide.
As well as producing some of Italy's best wines, Piedmont is also known for its white truffles - rare and tasty treasures. This is gourmet heaven, a place of smallholdings with secret recipes and traditions passed down from generation to generation. So if you want to really taste Piedmont, you'll need to get out into the countryside and into the local cellars.
If you want to sample Piedmont's wines one of the nicest routes to travel is along the Lange Hills from Alba, where you can discover wine village after wine village. And these big wines need a confident accompaniment, so expect to see plenty of truffles, fonduta and rich meats on the menus.
Piedmont's lower climes have many aesthetic treasures as well as culinary ones. There's Acqui Terme, a Roman town known for its hot sulphur springs, Asti, with it's many medieval towers and the home of Italy's oldest Palio, and lush Lake Maggiore, with is pretty garden resort towns. Piedmont has so much to offer it's been a tourist destination for as long as tourist destinations have existed.
