Turin tucks itself away amongst the mountains of north-westerly Piedmont. This elegant city is home to a host of foodie firsts, from hot chocolate as we know it to the most Italian of foodie traditions: aperitivo.
But a holiday to Turin isn’t all café-hopping and fine dining. You could wander around the Museo Egizio’s collection of sarcophagi, climb the tower of Turin Cathedral (home to the Shroud of Turin), or take a seat at the National Museum of Cinema in the Mole Antonelliana.
Fancy exploring further afield? Turin makes an excellent springboard for exploring northern greats like Lake Maggiore and Milan.
