The beauty of Piemonte is its variety. The mountain to the west, to the right of the Po river the hills, Langhe, Monferrato, the lands of Barolo, Barbaresco and truffles. Then the peaceful Po plain, the deep nature of high-altitude parks, along rivers and lakes and around castles and old mansions. A real paradise for sports lovers.

Emotions to try, atmospheres to experience first-hand. This is why Piemonte must be visited without haste. The bicycle is the ideal vehicle. For experts, who are challenged by the same mountain routes of the Tour of Italy, but also for non-professionals, families with children and nature lovers in general. Land of myths: Fausto Coppi and Costante Girardengo are sons of these places.

Among breathtaking scenery and high snowy peaks, the mountain of Piemonte offers a wide range of activities: skiing in all its forms, alpine ski, cross country ski, ski mountaineering, ski hiking and snowboarding, bobsleigh, sled, quads, routes with snowshoes, ice climbing. In the summer, the two national parks (Gran Paradiso and Val Grande) and the 54 regional parks, natural and fluvial, offer among the most spectacular Italian trekking and free climbing routes.

There are many proposals for those who love water sports: from canoeing to hydrospeed, from canyoning to rafting. Inserted in highly scenic places, the more than 60 golf courses in the region offer the opportunity to combine sports activities with visits to places rich in culture, art and history.

A land of engines, Piedmont offers two and four wheels’ lovers an unmissable motor and landscape heritage to explore.
