Discover Piedmont in Italy's north-west, a region with a rich culture and complex history dating back to pre-Roman times. Once the capital of the Kingdom of Savoy and then of Italy, the region's capital Torino/Turin sits at the heart of the region and has a wealth of palaces, Royal Residences, art galleries and museums, set amongst baroque piazzas and arcades. The region's small villages and towns have a wealth of little known history and architecture that provide a fascinating backdrop to the beautiful lands of Langhe and Roero with their leading red wines, Barolo and Barbera, together with stunning truffles and cheeses. This is a tour of real contrasts: a city filled with baroque palaces, hilltop villages boasting baroque churches, castles and piazzas and a beautiful landscape of rolling hills and vineyards.
