Looking for mountain holiday? Then a holiday in Piedmont farmhouse is the perfect solution for you. The name of this Italian region comes from its position: at the foot of Alps. Monte Rosa and Monte Bianco are the highest mountains both of...
Piedmont and the Alps. If you're keen on skiing and other winter sports, we suggest you Monviso ski-resort (Monviso is also renowned because the headwaters of the Po, the longest Italian river, are located on its northern slopes), but if you prefer making excursions, then trekking in the Gran Paradiso National Park could be another activity to do during your holiday in Piedmont.
There are many other amazing places surrounded by breathtaking natural landscapes you may visit during your holiday in Piedmont, among which Monferrato and the Castello delle Manta, and the Langhe (a hilly area in the province of Cuneo), mentioned by Cesare Pavese (one of the most important Italian writers, etc of the 20th century) and Fenoglio (another renowned Italian writer).
If you are keen on wine tourism, we strongly suggest you go along the Piedmont wine roads, since there are many local DOC wines which have gained international acclaim, among which Barbera and Barolo must be pointed out.
Last but not least, there's Turin, the old Roman city which stands the Mole Antonelliana over. Turin is also renowned as the little Paris because of its evident French style, its old cafés and big squares, and its elegant, baroque buildings of the 18th century.
