I might be biased about the Piazzo because I was born in Biella, though I left for more than 25 years. Why? Because I think it is the most beautiful part of Biella. It has kept all its medieval charme and mistery that many other "Borgo" of Italy have lost, a magic allure that is missing in Biella Piano. Every single street and corner is filled with history and legends: the cobled roads, the bridge you cross to enter Piazzo, with breathtaking view, the big arch, the small churches ranging from XI to XVII century, the wooden house which is the oldest in Biella just next to the restaurant/bookstore La Civetta, the Cisterna Square, Ferrero Palace, Gromo Losa Palace and its amazing Italian gardens and impressive views on the morenic hill of Serra, the astonishing Palazzo Lamarmora, with a nearby playground (in case your kids need some fun time too). So much to see and feel.... Or just a simple walk to enjoy excellent food - some of the best restaurants in Biella are there - or just an ice cream (try the Cremeria in Piazza Cisterna) in a very very romantic and intimate atmosphere, under medieval portico ( see pics). Enjoy.…

Walked to the Piazzo.. enjoying the evening.. beware of mosquitoes 😅 Prices are fair (cheaper than Brindisi) suitable for dinner, a drink, a gelato or just have a walk .. The place has ancient buildings.. we visited a 15th century chapel that is always opened ..

Lovely old town which can be enjoyed without hoards of fellow travellers. Tricky cobbles if you're mobility challenged ...

This is the old part of Biella, which lies on the top of an hill and it is just five minutes away from Bella city centre. It is easily accessible by taking the characteristic ''Funiculare''. Once you get there the view of the mountains is stunning and there is also plenty to visit: the ancient churches, the wonderful Piazza Cisterna, Palazzo Lamarmora, Palazzo Ferrero and Palazzo Gromo Losa, with its breath-taking gardens. Finally feel free to just walk around having an ice cream in Piazza Cisterna or having an aperitivo in one of the bars there.…
