Turin – Italy
We visited Turin many times during the last few years, as we have several friends living there. During our last visit, we stayed at the Turin Palace Hotel, a great 4* hotel, right in the city centre. Click here for the full review.
Lively and elegant, always on the move, incredibly, Torino is a city immersed in greenery, with over 300 km of tree-lined avenues and countless parks: gently leaning against the hills and embraced by the Po, it owes much of its charm to its enchanting geographical position at the foot of the western Alps.
After having hosted the Olympic Winter Game in 2006, Turin has drastically changed and improved. As well as being redesigned.

I have a great memory of my visit to Turin. The Piedmont capital city has a lot to offers to the visitors. Including the museums, beautiful squares (just to mention Piazza Vittorio Veneto and Piazza San Carlo and the famous Piazza Castello), cosy restaurants and thousands of bars and places where people can meet and enjoy social meetings.
The Royal Residences are also magnificent and very well maintained.
We can see that the city of Turin has invested in tourism while respecting as much as possible its history and highlighting its cultural heritage.
And, of course, as everywhere in Italy, the food is super good!
Torino is an aristocratic “old lady” more than two thousand years old, having Romans origins whose vestiges are still visible in “her” main monuments (Porte Palatine – just to mention one), streets, squares and underground. It’s indeed a re-born “old lady”, built out of her own ashes. Close to France, Turin and especially its city centre offers the same romantic and elegant atmosphere. I would consider it more dynamic, innovative and modern than the rest of the other Italian cities, and most importantly, always proud of her great past.
