Proprio come avevo fatto con la Liguria (qui l’articolo), oggi vorrei proporvi una mini guida al Piemonte, la regione dove vivo. Chi ama viaggiare come me, ma in generale lo facciamo quasi tutti, spesso fa fatica a vedere le meraviglie che ha a pochi metri da casa. Vogliamo tutti andare più lontano, vedere luoghi diversi da quelli a cui siamo abituati, e non consideriamo il fatto che a volte non è necessario fare viaggi di migliaia di chilometri per vedere qualcosa di nuovo, di bello, per passare una giornata piacevole. Negli ultimi anni ho scoperto tanti posti stupendi della mia regione, tutti a portata di mano, e non vedo l’ora di scoprirne altri. Vorrei consigliarveli per qualche gita, spero vi piaccia questa guida.
As I did for Liguria (here you can find the post), today I would like do write a mini guide to Piedmont, the region in which I live. Sometimes who loves traveling like me, but it’s something that we all do in general, is not able to see the wonders that he has few minutes from home. We all want to go far aways, visit places that are different from the one that we use to see, but we don’t consider that it’s not necessary to travel for miles to visit something new and beautiful. In the past few years I discoverd many beautiful places in my region, not too away from my home, and I can’t wait to discover other places. I hope you’ll like this guide.
I think that this beautiful city, the main town of the region, doesn’t need presentation but I want to include it in the guide. Since four years I go to university in Turin, an hour away from my home, so I don’t use to look at it with a tourist glance but there are many places to visit. In addition to many interesting museums and monuments, to its beautiful architecture, Valentino park, Turin is surrounded by wonderful places that are not in the city itself but they’re easy to reach from it like Superga, Venaria Palace and Stupinigi Palace (I still have to visit the last). So, if you’re in Piedmont, you have to visit Turin.
I obviously have to visit Major Lake and the Borromee Islands too. I talk to you about them here. The cities near the lake are pretty too, above all Stresa and Arona. There’s nothing more relaxing then have a walk in their lakefront.
Anothere beautiful lake location is Lake Orta and, in particular, Orta San Giulio, where you can also find the famous Villa Crespi, restaurant of Antonino Canavacciuolo. I love small fishermen villages and I think that Orta San Giulio is the more beautiful that you can find in Piedmont. The little island of San Giulio is wonderful too, you can see all it less than an hour but it’s so characteristic. I talk to you about this place here.
While the other locations are more or less famous, for the next ones I’d like to talk about something more familiar to me. Who follows my blog since the beginning already knows Ceresole because I talked about it many times (for example here and here), it’s a small town in the center of Gran Paradiso National Park. It’s one of my favourite places in the world, a place that never bore me even if I go there many times per year, it’s the corner of the world in which I can find peace and serenity. I suggest it to you both in winter and summer.
The latest are very small location in Valchiusella, a place near to my town. I’d like to include them in this guide because I think they’re wonderful, Meugliano for its beautiful lake and Fondo for the stunning Roman bridge and its waterfalls. I talk about them here.
