Mountains and plains, rivers, cities, farming and industry all live together in harmony in this region, united in an architectural and psychological whole. The round hilly area of Monferrato, the indented terrain of the Langhe, the misty tributaries of the Po, the lakesides. Its wonderful Castles, its history, and museums, abbeys and cathedrals, everywhere. The Automobile Museum, the technology hall, and two “workshops” - Turin’s major motorcar manufacturer, and Europe’s number one typewriter manufacturer in Ivrea are a “must” for the industry-minded visitor. But Turin also has its 18th century architecture, its bronze equestrian statues, its Mole Anotonelliana, Egyptian Museum, and Superga. A glimpse at Piedmont’s lake Maggiore and Orta, its mountain resorts which are so many fully-equipped gymnasiums for climbers and skiers to suit everyone. The boniveur has game, truffles and fondue, accompanied by Barolo, Barbera and Gattinara wines.
