Turin + Piedmont

Situated in northwest Italy where the Po River begins, the claims to fame for the region of Piedmont include award-winning vineyards, the rare white truffle and the surrounding Alps. The natural joys of this region include sports such as skiing, hiking and climbing. The region’s northernmost tip stretches up to border Switzerland and Lake Maggiore, while its western edge touches France. At its center, Piedmont’s capital city — and the first capital of unified Italy — of Turin entices visitors with its Baroque style, café culture and some of the best dining you will find in all of Italy.
