Turin & Piedmont

Things to know about Turin & Piedmont

Piedmont is a beautiful region in north-west Italy, on the border with Switzerland and France. A land filled with the mountains, surrounded on three sides by the Alps, which here includes the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy. Equally characteristic is the view of the Langhe and Monferrato regions, where you can discover a succession of vineyards, picturesque villages and castles.
Turin, the capital of Piedmont, is certainly the center of the region’s major tourist attractions, with its history and its remarkable artistic heritage. This city is Italy’s third economic center, mostly for the production of motor vehicles, and is today one of the major academic, artistic, tourist, cultural and science center. With its vast squares, its straight avenues lined with trees, its streets with arcades and the beautiful parks, Turin is one of the most charming Italian cities.
Among the major attractions are to mention the 19th century Mole Antonelliana, undisputed symbol of the city; the Royal Palace; the Renaissance Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, dating back to the 15th century; the imposing Palazzo Madama and many more.
Another tourist destination par excellence in the region is the Lago Maggiore, Stresa and the Borromeo Islands, where you can admire ancient villas surrounded by English-style gardens and beautiful landscapes. Visitors will finally be amazed by the large selection of food and wine to suit all tastes.
