Music Tours to Piedmont

  • Piedmont: “The Other Tuscany” without the crowds
  • Italy’s most elegant region with breathtaking landscapes
  • Perfect destination for food and culture lovers

Piedmont, a region of Italy bordering France and Switzerland, sits at the foot of the Alps where the landscapes, castles and cuisine are just as stunning as anything you might experience in Tuscany. Here you can visit the beautiful Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta, tour one of the many authentic medieval castles, and not to be missed is the region’s capital, Turin. This stately 19th-century city is home to Europe's best Egyptian Museum, the Automotive Museum and the Savoys' Royal Palace, not to mention The Holy Shroud which is periodically on display. The region’s atmosphere is superficially more French than Italian but dig deeper and you'll discover that Piedmont has 'Made in Italy' stamped all over it.

Extra Activities/Excursions

  • Turin: Known for its refined architecture and cuisine, the Alps rising to the northwest of the city, here you can admire stately baroque buildings, old cafés in Turin's boulevards and grand squares like Piazza Castello and Piazza San Carlo. Another great building is the soaring spire of the Mole Antonelliana, a 19th-century tower housing the interactive National Cinema Museum.
  • Neive: Visit Neive and walk through cobbled lanes lined with picturesque cottages and catch a spectacular view of the verdant rolling hills and the vineyards cascading down them. There's a lot of history here too with a number of 13th century to 16th century villas (Casa dei Cotti is the most famous). Don't miss the charming little chapels of San Rocco and San Sebastiano and the 13th century Clock Tower (Torre dell'Orologio) either.
  • Arona: A former Roman resort, later home to the influential Visconti and Borromeo families. In the centre of the town are a number of well known churches with great historic value. The Lungolago ("Lakeside") offers a fine view of the castle of Angera and the Alps.
  • Lake Maggiore: A long, beautiful lake on the south side of the Alps, shared by Italy’s Piedmont and Lombardy regions plus Switzerland’s Ticino canton. In the lake there are three spectacular and popular islands, with terraced gardens and aristocratic villas, which can be reached by boat from Stresa, one of the larger lake towns in Piedmont.
  • Asti: Asti is one of the renowned centres of wine production in Italy due to the excellent quality of grapes found in this region. Asti offers some interesting tourist attractions including museums and cathedrals along with some important monuments, which are worth visiting. There are also numerous festivals and events that take place here every year.

Where to stay

We work with an excellent and modern youth hostel in Turin which is perfect for visiting music tour groups. Hotel accommodation in the region can also be offered.

Concerts

Concert opportunities can be found in Neive, one of the most wonderful “Borgo”s (a medieval town) in Italy and a UNESCO world heritage site, as well as  on the shores of Lake Maggiore in the beautiful resort town of Arona or in the capital of Turin where there’s no shortage of possibilities for your ensembles.

"Lovely venues, lovely audiences, comfortable accommodation. Alahree was very prompt and efficient with her responses and understood our needs well."

Gill Chapman, Ceceilia Singers

"It’s hard to think how anything could have improved on this trip – it was superb in every way! The response to the whole tour has been entirely positive. Alahree was first class as ever and it was a pleasure to work with Alberto. The inspection visit in November was hugely beneficial and made the whole process of planning the concerts and itinerary so much more straightforward."
