The Italian Alps are located in the northern region of Italy. You'll be fascinated by the breathtaking views, history, flora and fauna. You'll love the relaxed atmosphere, the warm welcome, the regional Italian cuisine and so many activities and sports available, such as hiking, skiing and cycling. You're probably familiar with the Piedmont region in the north-west, famous for Fiat, Nutella, Lavazza and the city of Turin, the metropolitan area where the 2006 Winter Olympics were held. A region worth discovering.
