Torino

Just an hour-and-half away from Milan, in the heart of charming Piedmont. you’ve got one of the prettiest – and underrated – cities in Italy: Torino (also known as Turin). The first sight: beautiful Baroque buildings lined up, each embellished by quaint signage from bygone decades. Coffee shops with Art Nouveau interiors, red-velvet seats and older ladies with impeccable hair. Townhouse patios with tiny chapels, antique shops with true treasures, palazzos where you can spend hours on looking at all the intricate details… and blooming roses in the parks (yes, in winter). Not speaking of the fantastic lack of tourists, which is really calming if you’re back from Rome or Florence. I will post my favourite places to see and visit in Torino very soon, for now here are some “moments” I’ve captured during our stay in January…
