The Piedmont and Lombardy regions are not most readily discovered by tourists (with the exception of Lake Como and Lake Maggiore). These regions are vast and elegant with many picturesque and tranquil locations. You can relax and immerse yourself into the best of wine and food that Italy offers.
Milan in Lombardy is the most livable major city in Italy and is a mecca for fashion lovers. Its smaller cousin, Turin, in Piedmont both offer stunning beauty and amazing food. You will find the best (and most expensive) wines of Italy here as well as truffles and wonderful skiing in the north along the Swiss border.
