Piemonte

Cities and Towns in Piemonte

Piedmont tells a tale of snow capped mountains and powerful wines, industrial cities and cultivated countryside, of the Savoy, the Unification of Italy, and the mysteries of Turin, its capital city.

Ancient dominion of the Savoys, and home to important Italian cites like Turin, Novara and Asti, the region of Piedmont shares borders with France and Switzerland and is surrounded, on three sides, by magnificent mountains. The mountains of Piedmont have played a vital role in the history of the Italy, their slopes traversed by important routes of passage which have permitted economic development and cultural exchange. Piedmont is also home to the marvellously romantic Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta, and the Po river which, with its tributaries, creates fascinating configurations across the land. Then there is the enchanting countryside of the Langhe: land of castles, truffles and vineyards, where some of Italy's finest wines are produced.

Like other Italian Regions, Piemonte (or Piedmont) offers the traveler a variety of wonderful landscapes, from the snow-topped mountains in the Alps that border with France and Switzerland, to the rolling foothills that flow out of the mountains, to a wide and fertile plain.  The Italian Region of Lombardia (Lombardy) lies to the west, and Liguria to the south.  The north west corner borders on the Region of Valle D'Aosta.

The capital, Turin, the home of Fiat auto manufacturing, is a large, sprawling, sometimes ugly metropolis that can be off-putting as you drive, bus or train into its old, central district, the "centro".  Once there, however, it is rich in architectural, artistic, and culinary treasures.

All of Italy (and some of France) can be found in Piemonte. Architecturally, styles range from Romanesque, to Gothic, to Renaissance and now, to the ultra modern, which includes the most oppressively mundane to the odd building in Turin and elsewhere that thrills.  Visitors can enjoy the countryside as guests at any one of hundreds of Agriturismi, or can ski, hike, climb, and kayak in the Italian Alps.

Villa Verbania

This villa is a masterpiece of both Italian architecture and natural beauty and offers one of the best viewpoints on the lake. To the ground floor the baroque style porticoes wrap around the villa offering the fortunate visitor a different viewpoint of the lake from each and every room. And the views only become more impressive as one climbs further up this three storey villa.

Client Testimonials

I went to high school with the owner of the company who organized my honeymoon for myself and my now wife from Tokyo. We spent three short weeks seeing Piedmont and experiencing wine paradise there, then heading to Nice in France with our private driver and flying to Rome where honestly 4 days is NOT enough. They keep saying to spend more time and we could not agree more! You need to spend more time in many of these places. Over the course of our time in Italy we saw so much and loved it all, though Sicily and the Mondello estate they had at us, 2 minutes walk from the prettiest beach in the world was our favorite and Roberto the owners there who know Jess and her team made it so wonderful for us! We are planning on going back and even considering moving to Italy we had such a great time!
