Saluzzo is 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Turin and about 75 miles (121 kilometers) from Genoa.
Visiting just one town or city, no matter how popular, will only ever furnish you with a glimpse into the broader textures and qualities of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to visit Piedmont's other attractions. Pay a visit to the Galimberti Square and Renato Ratti Cantina in Cuneo, approximately 18 miles (29 kilometers) to the north of Saluzzo.
Around 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the north of Saluzzo is Turin, an important regional center home to Lagrange 15, Polytechnic University of Turin and Gran Paradiso National Park. Don't rush back to Saluzzo until you've investigated Turin's Palazzo dal Pozzo della Cisterna, Turin Royal Theatre and Valentino Castle.
The most rewarding places for tourists to visit when they discover a new destination are the ones that provide a window into the local culture. Don't miss Piedmont's history museums, art galleries and mansions. Spend a day in the fresh air and sunshine and make a tour of Piedmont's farms, gardens and open-air museums.
When the months get cooler, head to this area. Pull on your woollens and try the sports on offer here. Try snowboarding or cross-country skiing. Get a totally different perspective of the Piedmont area by taking to the skies. Paragliding is a popular pastime here.
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, bid a fond Ciao (farewell) to the interesting characters you've met and the spots you've been.
