The Piedmont (Piemonte) region of Italy has been generating a lot of interest lately particularly with it’s inclusion in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Now more accolades follow. The region has now been voted the 6th more interesting location to visit in Europe by the Europe-based editors and authors of Lonely Planet, which is the largest travel guide book publisher in the world.
Lonely Planet mention Turin as a great place to see, particularly the Egyptian Museum and go on to highlight the Unesco-listed landscapes of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato. Further mention is also given to our wonderful towns of Barolo,Barbaresco and La Morra.
Here is a list of the top ten places that Lonely Planet wish to visit:
The Azores, Portugal
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Piedmont really does have lot to offer in terms of culture,cuisine,wine and beautiful landscapes and in my opinion fully deserves the recognition it now receives.
