Autumn of nature, the outdoors, and flavour
Autumn is here with its colours and long days to be experienced slowly. The mountain valleys and villages, the hills, the lakes and art cities are waiting for you.
Immerse yourself in the colors
Green, yellow, orange, red, purple and brown. Piedmont in autumn is a painter's palette. From the vineyards of Langhe, Monferrato and Roero in the UNESCO heritage landscapes, to the woods crossed by the historic Centovalli – Vigezzina railway “Il Treno del foliage” which leaves from Domodossola. From the larch forests of the high valleys of Turin and Cuneo, to the Valgrande and Gran Paradiso National Parks and the regional parks of the Cottian Alps and the Maritime Alps. And then the scenery of the Biella Alps with the Oasi Zegna Natural Park and the Valentino Park in Turin: a blaze of nuances in the heart of the city.
Enjoy the explosion of flavours
From October to December in Piedmont you experience the highlight of taste. That of the White Truffle with the circuit of 24 fairs in the provinces of Alessandria, Asti, Cuneo and Turin but also of mountain cheeses and rice, chocolate, chestnuts and chestnuts and the 340 typical food products to try with adults wines from the 18 DOCG and 41 DOC. Quality and creativity that offer an unforgettable experience, in a typical trattoria, in the cafés and pastry shops of the Piedmontese cities, in a refuge at high altitude or one of the 44 Michelin star restaurants.
Recharge your batteries amid unique views
Breathtaking peaks or hills? Calm lakes or plains? Why choose? Experience them all. Find your ideal habitat among our 94 natural protected areas, 20,000 kilometres of biking and hiking trails, including those at high altitude on the historic mountain paths. The quality of the environment is guaranteed by the 24 Orange Flag municipalities and fun in the snow is provided by Piedmont’s 50 ski resorts, with 300 ski lifts and over 1,300 km of slopes.
Experience the beauty of the past and of the future
At any time of year in Piedmont you can enjoy the UNESCO-listed baroque architectural masterpieces, the villages and the lively cities of art. Discover villas, castles and gardens and a widespread wealth of contemporary art. Autumn here is rich with exhibitions and museums, with the crowning glories being Artissima, the international contemporary art fair, and the Luci d’Artista light festival.
Immerse yourself in slowness that regenerates
The autumn season is ideal for reconnecting with yourself. In Piedmont you can find spirituality and history, by walking the paths of the Sacred Mountains or the routes of Via Francigena, visiting the Sacra di San Michele a monument and symbol of the Region or by walking on the Holy Shroud Paths, the Romanesque Routes, the Jewish art itineraries and the path of the Glorious Repatriation of the Waldensians.
Did you know that Piedmont is home to many linguistic and cultural minorities? The Occitans in the 12 valleys between Alta Val Susa and Monregalese, the Franco-Provencals between Alto Canavese, Valli di Lanzo and lower Valle di Susa, the French-speaking natives of 19 Municipalities in the Province of Turin and the German-speaking Walser in Valsesia and in Verbano Cusio Ossola. Autumn is the perfect opportunity to discover the mountain architectures and ethnographic museums at your own pace.
