Where to Stay
Turin offers a plentitude of accommodation from cheap and quirky apartments to homey villas. Visitors can wake each morning to a great view of the city by staying in an apartment with a balcony in Borgo Po. This distinctive experience can be taken right onto the city streets by booking accommodation nestled amongst flea markets and cosy little bars in Aurora. Those looking for more of a bustling nightlife should stay close to the originally decorated bars in Quadrilatero, or right in the middle of all action in San Salvario. Vanchiglia is also a great place to grab a table with friends and enjoy a refreshing beer. Anybody looking to situate themselves in an almost completely opposite atmosphere are best booking accommodation in the quiet neighbourhood of CIT Turin. Other good areas include Crocetta and Santa Rita.
Things to Do
One of Italy’s unsung cities, there are many things to keep visitors interested during their trip to Turin. Start everything off by visiting what is perhaps the city’s most famous attraction, the Turin Shroud which is believed to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. It is placed in the Chapel of the Holy Shroud, part of the Royal Palace of Turin. The city is full of great museums from the National Museum of Cinema, to the Museo Egizio and the Museum of Oriental Art. It is also worth stopping by the Sabauda Gallery to view its royal art collections. Even more of the city’s attractions can be seen by simply taking a stroll along the charming streets. Visitors should plan a route which includes the Mole Antonelliana, the Royal Church of San Lorenzo and the Palatine Towers.
Eating and Drinking
Visitors to Turin can enjoy mouth-watering dining experiences of Italian food with strong French influences. Its many excellent restaurants serve perfectly prepared plates of agnolotti and cappelletti, and the popular dish of bagna caoda during the winter. Restaurants serving food from other Italian districts and international cuisine can be easily found, as well as snack bars, takeaways and delicatessens serving various tasty delights. However, it is the sweet treats which have both locals and visitors longing for more. Many of them invented in the Savoy kitchens, they include chocolate, mousse and light pastries. Turin is also home of world famous brands like Martini Rosso, Cinzano and Gancia, meaning refreshing drinks are everywhere.
Turin’s international airport is located to the north of the city. The airport is connected to the centre by train, bus and taxi. Those travelling on land can do so by car or bus, or by getting the train into one of three railway stations, Porta Nuova, Porta Susa and Lingotto FS.The easiest way of getting around Turin is by jumping on board its efficient public transport system. Underground lines cross the city and bus and trams lines run all night. The main thing to remember is that tickets must be purchased before boarding the bus. Visitors who want to take it easy and explore Turin at their own pace can benefit from renting a bicycle as many cycling paths have been implemented throughout the city. Renting a car is also a possibility.
