Cheap flights to Piedmont

Piedmont is one of the 20 regions of the country Italy. The region covers an area of 25,402km2 and approximately a population of about 4.6 million. Turin is the capital of Piedmont.

Piedmont's name originates from medieval Latin Pedemontium or Pedemontis, specifically "ad pedem montium," which means “at the foot of the mountains."

The region of Piedmont is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, Monviso, and Monte Rosa. Piedmont borders with France, Switzerland, and the other Italian regions of Lombardy, Liguria, Aosta Valley, as well as a very small fragment with Emilia Romagna. Geographically, Piedmont is made up of 43.3% mountains, along with extensive areas of hills and plains.

Piedmont ranks as the second largest region out of the other regions found in Italy, after Sicily.

Mole Antonelliana - Found in Turin, this 167-meter tower with its distinctive aluminum spire is the image that appears on the Italian two-cent coin. It was originally intended as a synagogue when construction began in 1862, but unfortunately it was never really used as a place for worship. Around the mid-1990s, it became home to the multi-floored Museo Nazionale del Cinema.

Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile - This museum was reopened in 2012 after an extensive renovation and is now the HQ of one of the world’s leading car manufacturers. The museum pays homage to the motor car and is anchored by a precious collection of over 200 automobiles. Car enthusiasts will be astonished as it carries everything from an 1892 Peugeot to a 1980 Ferrari 308.

Museo del Vino a Barolo - This museum isn't just all about wine, the place is a medieval castle and it also tells the story of viticulture through light, film, and the wild and creative imagination of Swiss designer François Confino. Confino also designed Turin’s Cinema museum.
