Meeting- and Incentive Package (3 days/2 nights) – Piedmont
Piedmont has a lot to offer for incentive programmes. Its capital city Torino is known as the home of Fiat
A popular regional dish is fonduta, a melted cheese dip of milk, eggs and white truffles (tartufi bianchi). Cardi alla Bagna Cauda is a dish of locally grown chard served with hot sauce, anchovies, garlic and white truffles. Other regional dishes include rabbit and boiled meat like Vitello Tonnato (veal tongue) and ox tail. Grissini are crispy breadsticks that have become popular throughout the country. Piedmont is also famous for its wild funghi : Porcini mushrooms and white truffles.
An overwhelming majority of Piemonte's wines derives from native wines. Besides the noble Nebbiolo, source of Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara and Ghemme, which are all DOCG, Barbera ranks as the most popular red wine, followed by Dolcetto, which is enjoyed for its mellow, round flavors. Still, among classified wines, white ones represent about a third of the volume. First comes Asti, whose DOCG applies to both sparkling Spumante and the softly bubbly Moscato d'Asti.
Airports used to reach this region are Torino, Genova and Milano Malpensa
