Or the area for the real foodies and wine lovers. Located in the northwestern part of Italy,
Piedmont is a region that has it all; a stunning variation in landscapes from the Alps to the
plains of the Po valley, vineyards that yield the best wine in the world, forests full of truffles
and hazelnuts and an abundance of stunning countryside to discover. It is a true fantasyland
for the ‘bon vivants’ amongst us. Home to the Slow Food movement - the contrariety to
fast food - where local organic food and traditional cooking is praised, this region will surely
enchant you in many ways.
But Piedmont is not just all about countryside, the capital city ‘Torino’ situated at the foot of
the Alps is an extraordinary city. Well known for its Fiat cars, Juventus football team,
Lavazza coffee, Gianduja chocolates, Martini aperitivi and much more, this romantic city is something you cannot miss. And if you are a devoted citytripper, you’ll love to know that the largest city in northern Italy - Milano - is only a small 1,5 hour drive away. Talking about a perfect 2-in-1!
In Piedmont you can still savour authentic Italy. It is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the good life amidst nature and of course ideal for Vespa touring. Each tour will take you through charming landscapes where hilltop castles, exceptional restaurants and renown wineries alternate. The tours start and finish at Piazza Savona in Alba. The Barolo, Alta Langa, Barbaresco and Roero tours are the gems of Kalitumba. Because after all, it was this region that convinced us to start our Kalitumba Vespa business. Also, if you wish to include a visit to one or both cities during your holiday, we are more than happy to help you design your perfect city trip.
