Regions

Attractions in Piedmont


Both in the north, in the west and in the south, the region, which is largely shaped by the Po Valley and the Piedmontese hills, is bounded between the high mountain walls of the Alps toward France and the Apennines in the south. Only in the east, the border with Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna is flat and open. But it is precisely the mountains that reach heights of over 4600 m in the north with the Monte Rosa, which make the area a paradise for outdoor activists.

Magical valleys and castles

Piedmont overlooks the French Alps, a strategic position, which has always represented a border area that needs surveillance and control. Therefore, the region is rich in ruins, castles and other fortified places with great historical values.
