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

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
