Piedmont Holiday Guide

Spring/Summer 2011


Dear traveller,

Thank you for visiting our Piedmont holiday guide providing tourist information and reccommending itineraries and tours of our beautiful and tasty region. We are sure you are going to be fascinated by Piedmont holiday destinations and treasuries...


From the mountain chains framing Piedmont at North, West and South, the land slopes down to hilly areas and then to the upper, and then to the lower the great Padan Plain. The countryside, then, is very varied: one passes from the rugged peaks of the massifs of Monte Rosa and of Gran Paradiso, to the damp rice paddies of the Vercellese and Novarese; from the gentle hillsides, joyfully covered in vineyards, of the Langhe and Monferrato to the plains. Situated at the edge of the Alps are two astonishing glacial basins: Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta. The percentage of the territory which is a protected area is 7.6%. There are 56 different national or regional parks. One such park is the Gran Paradiso National Park (Gran Paradis).


For an interesting tour in summer and autumn, we recommend you spending one week visiting the following Piedmont holiday destinations:



Based on your personal preferences, you can choose your Piedmont itineraries consulting the related pages of this website. Do not forget that you can add as well to your Piedmont holiday destinations a good share of visits to wine producers and tasting food, but to compensate for gastronomic overload, there's excellent walking, cycling, hiking, horse riding, etc.


A car is the ideal way to cover Piedmont itineraries, while your ideal accommodation will definitely be a luxury refurbished farmhouse in the middle of the countyside. In fact, the bucolic hills, valleys and townships in the south are a gourmand dream and an environment paradise. Whatever your day will be, you will find comfort, quiet and relax in the evening hours in one of the recommended Piedmont holiday houses.


Please, allow us to guide you through the pages of the Piedmont holiday guide. Have a look at the proposed Piedmont itineraries. If you are looking for your next journey, you will most probably go for a week visiting Piedmont holiday destinations after this dive.
