Beautiful landscapes, amazing culinary delicacies, arts and history, culture and La Dolce Vita … Welcome to Piedmont! This enchanting region has it all! Piedmont is said to be the seat of Italy's heritage. Just imagine what kind of a luxurious seat it can be. Prepare yourself because you are so close to exploring a region that is authentic, rich and one of Italy's best kept secrets.
Getting to Piedmont from the rest of Italy is rather simple, as long as you are willing to rent a car; besides, half of the fun is driving around the winding hills as you bounce from winery to winery, making new discoveries along the way. We also recommend taking the train, to Turin, the largest city in Piedmont and easily accessible from Italy’s other main cities. There are also bus options and easy access to cabs, in order to see the villages. Drivers and guide services are an option for travelers who don’t want to drive themselves when getting around Barolo and Barbaresco. It is a good idea given the windy, hilly country roads – and GPS isn’t always accurate.
Average temperatures in Northern Piedmont vary greatly. Considering humidity, temperatures feel cold all year with a very low chance of rain or snow throughout the year. The area is less temperate than some — in the 30th percentile for pleasant weather — compared to tourist destinations worldwide. The warmest time of the year is generally early August, where highs are regularly around 24-27°C (75.2-80.6°F), with temperatures rarely dropping below 20°C (68°F) at night. If dry weather is what you’re after, the months with the lowest chance of significant precipitation in Northern Piedmont are February, January, and then March. When can you find snow in Northern Piedmont? Weather stations report far greater snow than most winter tourist destinations throughout most of the year, likely to be deepest around January, especially close to late January and early February. The best time to ski (if at all) in Northern Piedmont is often around October 8th, when fresh powder is deepest.
With Italian Breaks, you’ll find unique places to stay in Lake Garda. Don’t miss to spend your days in Piedmont riding through rolling vine-covered landscapes, taking in a new panorama at every turn and stopping for a sample of Barbaresco, Barolo or Dolcetto di Dogliani wines. Lunch at a charming Italian trattoria is a must, after strolling through an authentic hilltop village. You will spend your mornings searching for treasured seasonal white truffles and indulge in a private tasting of world-renowned wines. Take all of your time to relax and to admire how the mountains pop through the clouds and regale at the food, culture and stunning landscapes that have just unfolded before your eyes.
