Welcome to Piedmont

Most Piedmont journeys start in stately Turin, famous for football and Fiats. Beyond the car factories, Piedmont is also notable for its food – everything from rice to white truffles – and pretty pastoral landscapes not unlike nearby Tuscany.

The region's smaller towns were once feuding fiefdoms that bickered over trade and religion. Today the biggest skirmishes are more likely to be over recipes and vintages as they vie for the gourmet traveller euro.
