The last part of our Italian adventure!
I’ll be honest, Turin (or ‘Torino’ as the Italians call it) is not an Italian city that’s on my radar – I’ve never really heard of it, and I had no idea why it was appealing to tourists. Turns out, this northern city is actually full of art galleries, stunning museums, stately baroque buildings, old cafes and, of course, plenty of wine to taste from the renowned Piedmont region.
Where to stay? I really, really recommend the Turin Palace Hotel – it was well priced, modern, great food and service, plus it boasts facilities like a gym, indoor pool, sauna and steam room. What to do? Well, after you’ve indulged your arty side at the Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, and had a glass of Barolo, you should definitely do some retail therapy on the famed Via Romo.
