Piedmont is in the northwest of Italy, bordered by Switzerland, France, and the Alps. Surrounded by mountains, the name of the region in Italian means foot of the mountains, and it holds the highest peaks in Italy. As such, the area is naturally filled with stunning landscapes and ski-resorts, and is a top destination for visitors who love winter sports.
The most popular part of Piedmont is Lake Maggiore, as it has a certain beauty that many people travel far to see. Accommodation here is a little more expensive than in other areas of Italy, because of the landscape. But the scenery is just one of the many attractions that the region has to offer. It is the second-largest region in Italy, and is typically Italian not only in its delicious cuisine and love of football, but also for its links to the royal family and rural villages.
If you are looking for a destination that ticks all the boxes for an Italian holiday, without the usual price tag, then stay in one of Piedmont's many charming hostels. Prices vary, but you can pay the price of a cheap hotel for a much more pleasant hostel experience. The more popular place for hostels is in the town of Turin, where the famous Fiat car factory resides, but this town is also full of cultural heritage. For example, Turin is where the world’s first hard chocolate was sold.
As great as it is, if the city isn't your style then head to the slopes and enjoy the mountains of Piedmont, or to Alba, famous for its wine and its cheese. Near the mountains, ancient villas and vineyards litter the hills with their quaint architecture and pretty cultivated gardens, left over from the royalty that used to reside in this region. Everything in Piedmont screams relaxation, indulgence and enjoyment, so enjoy the rustic charm of the hostels that you will find throughout the region.
There are many different seasons to visit Piedmont - if you are a skier, go in the Spring, and if you are visiting for the truffles and the wine, then go in the fall. This way, you will miss the crowds, and will still be able to secure a hostel bed for a good price, and focus on what the gorgeous Italian region can bring you.
