Perfect Piedmont

Piedmont could soon be seeing a fresh influx of visitors after it claimed the title of the world’s number one region to visit in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2019, the influential annual travel rankings produced by the travel publisher. Taking the top slot ahead of the USA’s Catskills, northern Peru and The Red Centre in Australia, Piedmont was lauded for its arts and music scene, exquisite countryside and food and drink offerings (among its myriad other attractions). Lonely Planet claims the area “is adept at playing to its strengths but not always so good at selling its considerable charms to visitors” – though it seems likely that this international accolade means Piedmont won’t need to shout too loud about its charms to attract fresh hordes of admirers in the future. As aficionados of Italy, we’re sure many Italia! readers are already well aware of the delights of Piedmont – get in touch to tell us your own highlights of the region at

About Italia!

True to form, this issue is packed with fascinating features and articles covering the Italian peninsula. You’ll love the evocative account of a visit to Genoa – our cover star this month – there is so much to see and admire, and take a boat trip out onto the Venetian lagoon to explore the forgotten islands, all with poignant tales to tell. Our newest writer Anna takes us on a tour of the Alta Maremma, once a marshy swamp and now the home to some of the finest wines in Italy, while the Po Delta is the destination for a weekend away.
