There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Museo Egizio, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di Superga, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and don't miss a visit to Palazzo Reale Di Torino.

For traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Turin trip planner.

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. An ideal holiday destination for foodies, the region is also known for its thriving industries of fresh produce, nuts, and chocolates. There are many places to visit in Piedmont, including several medieval castles, trendy spa resorts, and cities with both historical attractions and modern industries.
