Piedmont is the ultimate destination for food, wine, and art lovers. It is a region of charming villages, delicious cheeses and pasta, rolling vine-covered hills and DOC wines, and welcoming people. Explore the highlights and secrets of the region, relax in elegant hotels, experience its cuisine, and learn about its history in the company of an expert English-speaking guide and with your private driver.
You’ll start from the historical center of Turin, famed for once being home to the Italy’s former Royal family and thus home to some of Europe’s most elegant palaces. Then onto to discover and taste some of Turin’s specialties: chocolate, bicerin coffee, Vermouth, and of course that classic Italian tradition of settling into to a buffet of delicious canapes while enjoying an aperitif at dusk. Uncover hidden gems like the picturesque Medieval towns like Saluzzo – with its palaces, castles and abbeys – or go trekking across the beautiful alpine landscapes while crossing typical stone villages to savor local dishes. Visit local farms, to see how the regional dishes are prepared, or visit the vineyards in the Langhe wine district, to discover a centuries-old tradition of winemaking. Go to local markets or stop in a tiny café, to see how the Piemontesi live and eat what the Italians eat.
Why not indulge and try dishes made by the region’s best cooks? Want to dine in a castle? Done! Or turn the tables, and spend the day learning how to make some regional dishes! Also, if you visit the region between October and November, you should absolutely go hunting for truffles, Piedmont is famous in all the world for this culinary delicacy. Otherwise explore the spumante cellars – where the Italian ‘Champagne’ and the drink of all Italian drinks we use to celebrate all festivities is made.
