Biella is a very attractive and picturesque city situated at the foot of the Biellese Alps in the northern Italian region of Piedmont and is easily accessible with every means of transport. Lying between the two beautiful green valleys of Valle Cervo and Valsesia, the town is a well-known manufacturing center. Biella extends over three different natural zones, typified by the mountains of Massiccio del Bo and Mucrone, the hills of Burcina, and the plains with their rice paddies, of which the Serra Valley and the Baraggia plain are the most famous. Bielmonte and the Zegna Oasis in the Biellese Alps, on the other hand, are not only well-known destinations for winter sports like skiing, but in the summertime they offer adventurous excursions and itineraries. Fishing and canoeing are two other sports made possible by the abundant waterways of the Biella ecosystem (the rivers Cervo, Elvo, and Sessera in particular). In addition, the enchanting Lake Viverone, one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites, offers both archeological finds and natural beauty. It is the third largest lake in Piedmont and represents an important tourist center with lots of accommodation facilities along its shores.
