This Roman town was the first capital of Italy and for a long time the headquarters of the Royal Savoy family and their residences. Turin is a unique city, rich in history and charm, home to many UNESCO sites. It is characterised by its self-evident noble and aristocratic identity which came to shape during its most prosperous era. Piedmont’s capital stands out for its elegance and sophistication, it is constantly transforming and renewing its artistic and cultural scenes, and its urban setting. Full of museums and monuments, home to international events, and continuous gourmet activity, Turin has found its place amongst the list of the most interesting Italian destinations for both mainstream and alternative trips, it has something for everyone!
Piedmont is lucky to have its geographic location: the hills, plains and mountains are equally distributed, and the Ligurian Riviera and the Cinque Terre are within reach for day trips. Just outside of Turin, heading south, find the roads leading through the famous hills of Roero and Langhe (stages included in this FAM as day tours) with their views of vineyards and castles. Wine Regions and cuisine, greenery and history, this territory preserves the most authentic and genuine Piedmontese identity. North of the capital, towards Switzerland, the mountains are reflected in the setting of Lake D’Orta and Lake Maggiore, creating a timeless atmosphere: the tranquillity and relaxation, even during periods tourist high season! The whole region is surrounded by the Alps, a natural border and ideal for those who love winter sports and walking outdoors.
