Piedmont takes first place among the best destinations in 2019 for the legendary Lonely Planet. ViaggiArt will accompany you on an exciting tour of Piedmont.

Itineraries in Piedmont

Lonely Planet assigned an Italian beauty award to Piedmont as one of the most beautiful regions in the world. Visiting Piedmont offers plenty of choices among various UNESCO Sites, cities of art, mountain villages, castles and churches that follow one another in sequence among the hills, as well as many gastronomic options.

Taking Day trips to Piedmont

Our suggestions for organizing day trips to Piedmont is to begin with a visit to the city of Turin. It is the first capital of the Kingdom of Italy and one of the country's major artistic, tourist and cultural centers. Definitely mst-sees if you stay only one day: the Antonelliana Mole, the Cinema Museum, the Museums of the Royal Polo and the Egyptian Museum.

Just outside the capital, our short tour of Piedmont continues on to explore the UNESCO Savoy Residences which hosted the Savoys and their court.

The wines of Piedmont: Langhe, Roero and Monferrato

Exploring this region means savoring the wines and enjoying the hills covered with vines in the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato areas, where the vineards are combined with the ancient Piedmont Castles

Food and wine tours in Piedmont

The tour of Piedmont continues with numerous tastings: after raising your glasses, you can enter the beautiful area of Alba. Here you will find its  renowned White Truffle which is the absolute protagonist of the food and wine tours in Piedmont, as well as an Autumn Festival among the most important events of this region.

Definite must- tastes: the Vercelli rice, the "panissa" and the typical Piedmontese cheeses.

Piedmontese mountains to visit

From the summit of Monte Rosa to the entire Gran Paradiso National Park which are among the most beautiful and famous protected areas in Italy, the Piedmontese mountains are a perfect balance between nature, spirituality and artistic villages that offer suggestive walks in Piedmont throughout every season -  from the perennial snowstoms to Alpine summer  scenery.

For lovers of trekking and slow tourism, there are Piedmont itineraries that should not to be missed are:the stretch of Via Francigena that passes through Val di Susa and some of the most beautiful historical and artistic sites in the region, including the Sacra di San Michele which is a  symbol of Piedmont. It is also the setting of the novel entitled, “Il nome della rosa”,  by Umberto Eco, and the spiritual chain that connects the so-called Sacred Mountains to the  lakes,which are another inestimable UNESCO Heritage.

Among the regional events that are a must:the Carnival of Ivrea and the Turin International Book Fair.
