Built in 1904 by shipbuilders Escher Wyss of Zurich, ‘Piemonte’ is a genuine period paddle steamer powered by an original alternative steam engine. Following a series of major restoration works the steamer once again set sail in 2006, and has since been used for cruises and special services. Equipped with two large lounges furnished in Liberty style and open-air areas at the stern and the bow, it is ideal for meetings, weddings and parties. Places for restaurant are 197.
