Piedmont and Historical Carnival of Ivrea in “Top 10 regions to visit in 2019” by Lonely PlanetElisa Zanetti
The Historical Carnival of Ivrea is one of the good reason to go to Piedmont, the first top region to visit in 2019 for Lonely Planet. Here the reasons to choose the region for the famous guide: “This landlocked northwestern corner of Italy – former Savoy stronghold, crucible of Italian nationhood and 20th-century industrial powerhouse – is adept at playing to its strengths but not always so good at selling its considerable charms to visitors. However, with Turin’s contemporary-arts and electronic-music scenes flourishing, a very special self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci squirrelled away in the city’s Biblioteca Reale, sublimely remote Alpine walking trails and a clutch of exquisitely bucolic villages and valleys offering up arguably Italy’s best reds (wine) and whites (truffles), it might not be just the savvy, arty, foodie traveller’s secret for much longer”.
