Piedmont vs Tuscany – which do you choose?

May 22nd, 2018 by

Timeless Tuscany or Perfect Piedmont?

The sophisticated Piedmont region of northern Italy and timeless Tuscany in the heart of Italy are two of our most popular walking and cycling destinations.

As well as the breathtaking landscapes coming to life, including the grapes growing on the vines in Piedmont, during the summer there are many festivals to enjoy. Meanwhile, in the Chianti region of Tuscany, the Via Francigena is alive with bright sunflowers and fragrant apple orchards, and olive groves glisten in the sunlight.

Here are our highlights of each region.

“I love places that have an incredible history. I love the Italian way of life. I love the food. I love the people. I love the attitudes of Italians.”
– Elton John
Timeless Tuscany

Art Cities, gorgeous landscapes, wine and charming towns and villages all add up to be the quintessential Tuscany experience.

• Explore the unspoiled Chianti countryside and visit the world-famous ‘Super Tuscans’: Florence, with its Renaissance architecture; Pisa, birthplace of Galileo Galilei, and medieval Siena.
• The Chianti region is as varied in its scenery as it is in its wines. The soft rolling hills covered with rows of grapes, quaint hamlets and low lying forests have inspired poets, artists, photographers and travelers for centuries.
•The Chianti wine region is famous for its Chianti and Chianti Classico red wines. The tradition of cultivating vines goes back a long time in history, to the Etruscans that inhabited the area before the Roman Empire.
•Casole d’Elsa is a pretty Etruscan village atop a panoramic ridge, with an amphitheatre and Etruscan tombs; Colle di Val d’Elsa is a fascinating town of two halves with an elevator linking the new piazza with the medieval upper town.

Barberesco, Piedmont Italy
Piedmont

Wine and vineyards, breathtaking views, enchanting hilltop towns and unparalleled gastronomy top the list of reasons to visit Piedmont.

• Producing two of the world’s best red wines, Barolo and Barbaresco, taste your way through the region’s fine vineyards. There is a frisson to walking between rows of sun-smooched vines, with their grapes visibly plumping in the swelter.
•Enjoy magnificent views of dramatic Alpine peaks that seem to float ethereally among the clouds as they encircle the quilted patchwork of vineyards, colorful sunflowers and lush hazelnut groves. Some great photo opportunities!
• Standing proud above vine-cloaked rolling hillsides, towns such as medieval Roddi and Serralunga d’Alba are home to cobbled streets, imposing castles and warm, friendly locals – with amazing views.
•Piedmont’s fertile land is home of the Slow Food Movement. Enjoy quality, local meats served up in mouth-watering  ragùs, aromatic white truffles and signature cheeses like Gorgonzola.
