I just love Piemonte and its people. The region covers some of the most beautiful and varied landscapes of Italy and for lovers of Italian food and wine it is a veritable treasure chest of delights!
The architecture has a strong French influence, this is thanks to the House of Savoy who ruled there since the eleventh century.
There are some stunning Bars in Torino, not surprising as it is here that most of the ‘ Aperitives’ have been created. Most are vermouth based, which derives from the bitter herb, Wormwood. It is very much in the Torinesi culture to drop into a Bar after work for a quick drink and a ‘ stuzzichino’, those delicious little nibbles.
