Piedmont and Liguria

Located in the northwest of Italy, Piedmont borders Switzerland and France. True to its name – foot of the mountain – the region is surrounded by the Alps and is home to the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy. Breathtaking landscapes and picturesque valleys, the vineyards of the Langhe and Monferrato and the small towns and castles are only some of the best spots in Piedmont. The region is renowned for its incredibly rich tradition in medicinal and aromatic plants, accounting for the 30% of the whole Italian production, for its food and wine as well as for its impressive cultural heritage with the famous Residences of the Royal House of Savoy. Its regional capital is Turin; the other provinces are Alessandria, Asti, Biella, Cuneo, Novara, Verbano Cusio Ossola and Vercelli.

Liguria is a region of great tourist attraction for its many natural beauties, among which – to the west the Riviera dei Fiori and to the east Portofino, the Cinque Terre and Porto Venere. Very rich from an historical, architectural, cultural and gastronomic point of view, it is one of the smallest regions of Italy, still one of the most densely populated. The Ligurian Sea is an arm of the Mediterranean Sea and the Gulf of its capital city Genoa constitutes an important part of it. The coasts are generally high, rocky, jagged, especially in the eastern Riviera, while to the west there is an almost perfect alternation between rocks overlooking the sea and sandy beaches.
