Piemonte’s location near the sea and with France and Switzerland have made this area quite diverse. It is the largest region of Italy, second only to Sicily. Here you will find the beautiful hills of the Langhe with vines of the famous Barolo red wines. For those who prefer whites, there is the lesser known Gavi and the sparkling wine, Asti Spumante. Small villages are scattered throughout, along with wooded areas for truffle hunting. The Alps and Appenines are here also, along with the Po River. Of course, with wonderful wines come gourmet foods…local food often has more of a French flair than the more simplistic Italian style.

"We saw more of Italy in 8 days than most people see in 10 or more days. Best of all it was just us to go at our own pace. My husband kept saying to me, 'This is the way to go.'" - Mary C., March 2007
