The Biella area is a small jewel still little known but with great points of interest.
Its location, a short distance between Turin, Milan and the Aosta Valley, makes it a perfect mix, between relaxation, nature walks, historical visits and typical cuisine, this combination has given Biella the title of Alpine City of 2021.
In our valleys, there are 2 Sanctuaries, one of which has become a World Heritage Site since 2003.
We can let ourselves be fascinated by medieval villages, and historic houses that today have found new life.
