Piedmont Italy

Wouldn't it be easier if Italy were just a bit more boring? The art, the history, the landscapes, the pasta-seriously, you're always going to feel like there's more to to or eat. If actual relaxing is on your agenda, the Piedmont region  may just be your answer. Tucked into the northwestern corner of the country, Piedmont pulled the short straw when it came to major Italian attractions. This is nothing but farm country, home to countless hazelnut groves, Barolo wineries, and truffle-studded fields, a place where folks have so much time on their hands, they created Italy's slow-food movement. Most tourists don't bother with Piedmont, and those who do have little choice but to stay in unpretentious, family-run inns that serve meals made from what the owners grow and raise themselves. No crowds, authentic farm-to-table cuisine, endless Barolo-wait, that doesn't sound so bad after all. In fact, it sounds like heaven. Leave it to Italy to make even life in the slow lane completely irresistible.

I experienced this small town and of course the wonderful Barolo wines myself - one word AWESOME!
