Please Help with Trip to the Piedmont

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (early 60's) are planning a Slow Travel type trip to the Piedmont region of Italy. We have visited Italy several times and now we want to concentrate on the Piedmont particularly for the wines.

We will have about 3 weeks to see Turin, the wine villages and the lakes -- we loved Lake Como and now want to see Lake Maggiore and Lake d'Orta. Would love suggestions on what to see and how best to structure this trip.

Here is a very rough plan:

Turin -- 1 week, lots of museums etc. that we want to see, includes day trips to Fenestrelle Fortress and also Aosta

Piedmont wine villages -- rent a car and base ourselves in Alba for 1 week to visit wineries and villages at a slow pace

The Lakes -- return car and take public transportation, base ourselves in Stresa for 1 week to see the islands and villas, take a day trip to Locarno

It seems that Milan would be the best airport to fly home. Is there any public transportation from Stresa to Malpensa airport? We would prefer not to spend a night in Milan since we have visited there several times.

Greatly appreciate any suggestions on B&Bs, wineries, logistics etc. Thanks!
