Things to Do in Piedmont

Food & Drinks

Piedmont is the ultimate destination for fans of the gourmet cuisine. When you visit the region, make sure you try Castelmagno cheese, Arborio risotto rice, Gianduiotto chocolates and the famous Alba white truffles. This region is also home to the ‘slow food’ movement which aims to protect and promote artisanal food and small-scale producers. To do that, many food festivals are organised where you can try and buy high-quality products. Make the most of it!

An inseparable part of dining in Piedmont is wine. There are plenty of great wineries around the region but the most famous are the Langhe and Roero. This is where two of the greatest wines are produced – Barolo and Barbaresco.

Turin

Every corner of this elegant and vibrant city is full of history and mysteries. As the local legend says, the city is divided into two halves: a white magic triangle with Lyon and Prague and a black magic triangle with London and San Francisco.

Many say that walking around the streets of Turin in the night can really make you feel the more mystical and magical side of the city, so why not embrace the legends and go out in the evening? Who knows what you might discover?

Cultural Calendar

Piedmont is also well known for its rich and varied cultural calendar, full of fantastic and sometimes intriguing events. One of them is the traditional Battle of the Oranges. Every year, thousands of people of Ivrea organise the largest food fight in Italy. For three days, nine teams are fighting by throwing oranges at each other.

If orange fights are not your thing, you can try picking truffles in Alba, visit Cioccolatò, Turin Chocolate Festival or the Novara Jazz festival in October. Your options are countless.
