Torino / Turin

  • In its cuisine, elegant boulevards and dramatic Alpine backdrop, Turin is one of Europe’s great cities.

    At its heart are the iconic Mole Antoniellana, completed in 1889 and home to the Museum of Cinema, and elegant Piazza San Carlo.  Both are visible in the photo here.

    Forget the Mediterranean diet here Рthe Torinesi eat hearty meat, cheese and vegatable dishes, laced with local truffle, at the myriad ristoranti, osterie and trattorie. Enjoy a traditional bicerin rich chocolate, coffee and milk drink Рor Vermouth Рin one of the many historic caffés.

    A stroll through the public gardens which border the majestic River Po are the ideal antidote to all the rich cuisine.
