Lonely Planet Best in travel

Lonely Planet has named Piedmont as the world’s best region to visit in 2019 for many reasons: the elegant beauty of Turin, the capital city; the wine region in the southern area, where some of the most outstanding Italian wines (like Barolo) are produced; the dramatic settings of the Lakes, quietly set amidst the mountains; the richness of the local food variety, including the very valuable white truffles; and the many traditional events taking place every year all over the region.

“The beauty of Piedmont is its diversity, so whether you’re exploring its Baroque palaces, vineyards or lakes, you’ll find a reason to love it”.
