A culinary tour of Italy
We are in Valtellina, a valley famous for the unspoiled beauty of Stelvio Natural Park, its numerous natural hot springs, and its impressive culinary tradition, and also for hosting the World Ski Championships and other famous international winter sport events!
We’re still in Milan, a city recognized by every Italian for its dynamic social life, its fashionable locales and leisure options that reflect the most cutting-edge trends in Europe, surrounded by historic sites that bear witness to the aristocratic roots of its ancestry.
It is surprising to find such a highly industrialized and majestic city as Turin in a largely rural region as the Piedmont. The streets of this great city, which has been the hallmark of Italy's progress for centuries, are steeped in culture and history.
Piedmont stretches across northwest Italy, between the mountains of the Aosta Valley, the Alps and the Apennines, hence its name, which means "at the foot of the mountains".
