The major cities in the area - Turin, Milan and Genoa - are worth a (multi)day visit. So is the rough Ligurian coast south of Piedmont.
The nearby provincial towns of Asti and Alba are a must, if only because of their diversity. Spread over the hills you’ll find hidden gems: picturesque villages, medieval towers, monumental castles, baroque churches, extensive vineyards, and the meandering Tanaro. Choosing between Govone, Aqui Terme, Barbaresco, Cherasco, San Martino Alfieri, Casale Monferrato, Magliano Alfieri, Canale, ... is heartbreaking. So make sure you have a sufficiently long stay!
Walking and cycling in Piedmont
The longest European walking route crosses the region and connects here to several smaller hiking trails. Route maps are available at the tourist offices of San Damiano, Alba and Asti.
The steep slopes are an ideal training course for the passionate cycling enthusiast, but the leisure cyclist will sooner want to rent an e-bike in San Damiano d’Asti. The bicycles are delivered to your home. Make sure to reserve them in time!
Eating and drinking in Piedmont
Piedmont and especially Bra is the birthplace of slow food. The hardest part will be choosing: gourmet restaurants, trattorias, osterias, pizzeria's, gelaterias, you can find them even in the smallest villages.
The food is unbelievably tasty, the hospitality proverbial and the prices very democratic. Also don't forget to order one of those delicious local wines. The large wine regions of the Langhe, Monferrato and Roero produce true angelic beverages.
