Travel Concierge – Piedmont

Piedmont is second to none for elegance and class. Turin, home of the Italian royal family since 1563, is the essence of traditional Italian Style. Every corner of the “Old Dame” as Turin is affectionately called, has a vein of nostalgic allure that comes from far back.

  • CULTURE HISTORY INDUSTRY: Elegant palazzos, piazzas, green parks, old stables, and rowing clubs, cafes, pastry and book shops all bear witness to antique splendours and offer a contrast to the other Piedmont: that of the top Italian industries. Companies the likes of Fiat, Ferrero and Olivetti, or in the sporting sector the football clubs Juventus FC and Torino FC, all are from Piedmont, a region where work comes first.
  • MEETINGS LOCATIONS: Anyone interested in getting to know this area better will find enthusiastic help in Adagio. Meetings can be arranged with top representatives of these icons of Italian industry and events in former industrial buildings.
  • EATINERARIES: Piedmont is also blessed with outstanding natural beauty. From her fertile hills come Alba’s famous white truffles and hazelnuts, an essential ingredient in Piedmont’s famous chocolates. Fassone beef is also a local specialty and local milks go into the best cheeses. The Langhe and Monferrato regions are homes of Barolo, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, and Malvasia wines, amongst the most famous Italian wines worldwide and the perfect accompaniment for local dishes.
