And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Museo Egizio, don't miss a visit to Piazza Castello, steep yourself in history at Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone, and admire the landmark architecture of Palazzo Reale Di Torino.

Bordered by the Alps on three sides and often overlooked by casual tourists, the Piedmont region is famous for its wines, including Moscato D'Asti, Barolo, and Barbera, to name just a few. Piedmont's cuisine is renowned throughout Italy. Its exotic white truffles--a precious ingredient used in first-class restaurants around the world--are often compared to gold because of their staggering cost.
