Occupying a large area that borders on France and Switzerland, Piedmont is the ancient dominion of the Savoys, the ill-fated royal family who ruled Italy from the Unification in 1861 until abdication in 1946. Piedmont is also the birthplace of the Slow Food Movement, with a host of specialities in an area which boasts centuries’ old culinary traditions and outstanding, top quality local produce appreciated throughout the world. Cycling through tranquil hamlets, castles and hillside vineyards, you’ll be delighted by Piedmont’s culinary landscape, famous for hazelnuts, cheese, truffles and excellent wines, such as Barolo or Barbera among others.
