Wealthy, cultivated and famously gastronomic, Piedmont remains relatively undiscovered by American travelers. Turin, the headquarters of Fiat, belies its reputation as an industrial city by also being notably elegant, with a baroque center that features miles of shopping arcades. An hour south, the towns of Alba, Asti, Barolo and Barbaresco draw gourmets and oenophiles from around the world. The charming town of Alba is the world’s white truffle capital. Its famous Truffle Market takes place on Saturdays and Sundays from October through mid-December. Outside the season, visit Tartufi Ponzio for all manner of truffle-related products.
