Turin and the Piedmont are the focus of one of Tour Italy Now’s newest tours, Discover Piedmont. Let us show you this fascinating region known for it’s architecture and chocolate and breathtaking natural beauty.
“This small-group, deluxe tour of the enchanting Piedmont region starts in Turin, Italy’s first modern capital, home to Italian nobility and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics, where you’ll marvel at its architecture and swoon over its chocolates. Off to Monferrato and Asti, land of undulating terrain, for wine and walks, and on to the Italian Riviera, with stops in Cinque Terre and Portofino. In Parma, on the edges of the Emilia Romagna — and yes, it’s where the cheese comes from — for a guided tour and lunch and then on to Como, on Lake Como, for more of the same. Andiamo!”
Yours in celebrating Italy!
