Thus I have long believed that this town, where I was born, was the whole world. Now that I really saw the world and I know that it is made of many small towns maybe I wasn’t wrong by much when I was a boy. (…) We all need a town, only for the sake of leaving. A town means not being alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the land there is something that is yours, that even when you’re not there is waiting for you.

Cesare Pavese

Piedmont is a land of excellence. A varied territory is the natural setting of unique itineraries rich in culture, art, sport and wine and gastronomic traditions.
The mountains that hosted the XX Olympic Winter Games of 2006 offer a thousand ways to experience the fun: in winter, in the 53 ski resorts spread throughout the region, along the hundreds of kilometres of tracks, or jumping off-piste on powder snow while the sun inflames the peaks, and then continue until nightfall, under the spotlights.

In summer, when nature is spectacular and you can enjoy every nuance of it along the thousand paths, going down at breathtaking speed on mountain bikes, enjoying the mountain specialities in one of the shelters with which our majestic Alps are studded.

The many lakes offer fun and beautiful landscapes, tranquillity and sophisticated hospitality, the dozens of Art cities of Piedmont offer centuries of history, folklore events like the Historic Carnival of Ivrea and the countless country festivals transmit the passion of a region rich in traditions and culture.

And ultimately the great landscape, cultural and especially wine and gastronomic heritage of the Langhe and Monferrato hills: ancient villages set among rows of fine vine varieties, interspersed with impressive country houses, unveil the wineries where you can enjoy the excellence of regional wines and trattorias where to taste rustic specialities reworked in gourmet key; different colours and scents for every season, breathtaking views and intense flavours satisfy the visitor’s senses, ensuring a complete and unforgettable experience.
