Occimiano is located approximately 300 miles (483 kilometers) from Rome, the country's capital, and about 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Turin.
Don't restrict yourself to Occimiano; this region has a wealth of natural and man-made attractions just waiting to be explored. Visit the Torre dell'Angelo and Torre di Città in Vercelli, approximately 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the south of Occimiano.
Alessandria, is another good spot to discover. It is approximately 12 miles (19 kilometers) from Occimiano and offers a great selection of things to see, such as Museo Etnografico della Gambarina C'era una Volta, Museo della Battaglia di Marengo and Piazzetta della Lega Lombarda. Antiquarium Forum Fulvii, Piazza della Liberta and Chiesa di Santa Maria di Castello are also well-worth checking out before heading back to Occimiano.
If you're in the hunt for experiences that won't wreak havoc on the budget, take a tour of Piedmont's popular open-air markets, gardens and open-air exhibits. Visitors with an interest in history won't want to miss Piedmont's historic mansions, fortresses and traditional villages.
The Piedmont area features a range of gentle pastimes. Why not spend some time cycling or shore fishing and feel your stresses melt away. Have you always wanted to go paragliding? This area is a good place to have a go.
