"Heaven on Earth" is what they call Piedmont, and the name is very appropriate, at least for those whose passion is excellent food and outstanding wine. Nevertheless, in the "home of the white truffle" there are not only more than 50 Michelin Guide restaurants offering culinary treats but also lots for lovers of culture and nature to do too! Piedmont is a real paradise that offers endless ways for everyone to enjoy an unforgettable holiday.

In this gently rolling countryside covered in vineyards, almost every hill is crowned by a little village, sometimes consisting of only a few houses but always with a church spire reaching up towards heaven, and you really have the feeling that time has stood still. The vineyards from which such famous wines as Barolo or Barbaresco come are inviting places to go for long walks. The ever-changing ups and downs of the scenery make bike rides an interesting experience. There are vast wine-growing estates were you can taste the fine wines, and picturesque villages with lots to look at: arcaded shopping streets, twisty alleyways, steep steps leading nowhere, churches and palaces.

The larger towns are also attractive, with their impressive cultural, historic and architectural features and a wide range of options for entertainment and shopping.

Economically, Piedmont is one of Italy's richest regions, and it is also the second largest in terms of area, with about 4.5 million inhabitants. Along with the car manufacturers Fiat and Lancia who are based in Turin and the food producer Ferrero in Alba, agriculture is very important in Piedmont. For example, Piedmont is Europe's biggest rice growing region, with a third of European rice production based here.

Nevertheless, even though Piedmont is so popular for its warm Mediterranean climate, it is not only a place for sun worshippers but also for winter sports fans. The well-known resort of Sestriere, which has hosted many Alpine World Cup events, is close to the French border in the province of Turin and attracts large numbers of winter sports enthusiasts every winter.

Piedmont, enchanting, fascinating, diverse and always worth a visit …
