Holiday in Piedmont
Home to mountains, rivers, valleys and one of the most important cities in Italy, Piedmont is an Italian region full of opportunities for very different holidays. Explore one of the country’s richest and most dynamic cities, Turin, which is home to the Turin Shroud, Juventus Football Club and the famous car manufacturers Fiat. From one of HouseTrip’s many holiday villas in Piedmont you can explore the region’s other cities and sights that scattered around the stunning countryside like the city of Alba, the birthplace of Nutella, or Asti, the centre of Piedmont’s wine region. Alternatively wait until the winter months when the snow starts to fall and you can enjoy days on the slopes and nights by log fires in ski resorts like Via Lattea (“the Milky Way”), which is popular with local Turinesi and is suitable for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. In the summer months head to Lake Maggiore which stretches into Piedmont all the way from Switzerland and offers waterfront strolls, gentle water cruises and fresh water swimming or could be a perfect base for rambling in the rolling green hills nearby. Whenever you choose to visit or wherever your destination in Piedmont may be, be sure to try some of the region’s food including pasta with white truffle sauce. And don’t forget to sample the famous Piedmontesi wines, which are one of the region’s biggest exports like the fine red Barbaresca and the sweet Moscato d’Asti.
