Cheap flights to Piedmont

Piedmont is one of the 20 regions of Italy and its capital is Turin. The region itself has an area of 25,402km2, where an estimated population of about 4.6 million resides there.

Piedmont is the second largest among Italy's 20 regions after Sicily. Its name’s origin is from the medieval Latin Pedemontium or Pedemontis, specifically the saying “ad pedem montium,” meaning “at the foot of the mountains.”

What to see & do

Isola Bella - Located at Borromean Islands, Isola Bella is one of the Borromean Islands of Lago Maggiore located in north Italy. Isola Bella can be found in the Borromean Gulf 400 metres from the lakeside town of Stresa. Isola Bella is divided between the Palace, its Italianate garden, and a small fishing village. In order to get here, travellers can take the ferry from Stresa, Laveno, Pallanza, or Intra. One of the events in Isola Bella is the annual Stresa music festival.

Monte Mottarone - This is a mountain in the Western Alps of north-western Italy that has an elevation of 1,492 metres. Tourists can reach the peak of Mottarone by a cableway from Carciano, a frazione of Stresa. The trip itself overlooks the city of Verbania on the Lake Maggiore, the Monviso in the Maritime Alps, as well as the Monte Rosa. Other than a cable car, travellers can also opt to rent a car and drive to it.

Basilica of Superga - The basilica was built from the year 1717 to 1731 for Victor Amadeus II of Savoy. This church contains the tombs of many princes and kings of the House of Savoy, including the Monument to Carlo Emanuele III by Ignazio Collino and his brother Filippo. Tourists will be intrigued that under the church, tombs of the Savoy family can be found, which included most of its members. The church by Juvarra is considered late Baroque-Classicism, with the dome completed in 1726 and resembles some elements of Michelangelo's dome at St. Peter's Basilica.
