Biella is a little known town in the Northern reaches of Italy and it is this lack of fame that is actually one of its bestselling points. If you're in search of an impossibly beautiful locale that has yet to be discovered by the tourists of the world then look no further. The region is hilly and as such provides spectacular views via walking and cycling routes. But Biella doesn't just have natural beauty, as it is home to some of the best Romanic architecture in the country, including the breath-taking Piazza del Duomo which includes a rather impressive clock tower. Around every corner is another ancient building to marvel at, making Biella a must for any culture vulture.
If you decide that you've had your fill of ancient culture from what was once the home of civilisation in days past, then why not hire a car, hop across the border and visit the home of modern civilisation, Geneva? At less than 3 hours' drive, passing through France and into Switzerland Geneva is a great companion city to Biella. Visit the Palais des Nations to see where modern diplomacy calls home or attend one of the many festivals the city plays host to. The tourist board offer the 'Geneva Pass' which can be purchased online in advance http://www.geneve-tourisme.ch/en/home/ and will grant you access to museums, tours and much more, plus it includes public transport.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
