Northern Italy may fall behind the southern part of the country when it comes to popularity, but it definitely has many treasures of its own that are worth exploring. Turin is one of those places in northern Italy where a modern, bustling city has not forgotten its rich cultural heritage. The place is just teeming with palaces, manors and museums! If you’re looking for a city break spiced with a bit of culture, history and unmatched Italian cuisine, Turin is the place to be!
Your break in the Italian hub of culture – Turin
This deal will take you on a short break to the grand Italian city of Turin. The fantastic price of just £113.50 per person includes return flights for two from London as well as a chic 4* Pacific Hotel Fortino close to the city centre. Breakfast at the hotel is included in the price.
Let’s start with the hotel you’ll be staying in, as it’s a real gem! The interiors are very spacious and elegant with furnishings and decor being kept in warm, subtle tones with a touch of darker shades. It’s perched on the bank of River Dora and houses a beautiful garden with a summer terrace, so the views are bound to be spectacular. I can’t imagine anything better than sipping an exquisite Italian coffee while looking out onto the garden. Give into temptation and visit the hotel’s excellent restaurant – the à la carte menu is bound to be a real treat for your taste buds! The hotel has received a 4/5 rating on TripAdvisor and its located close to the city centre – whether it’s a 15 minute walk or a short ride on the tram, you’ll reach the city and most important sights in a blink of an eye.
The bedrooms are kept simple, but the authentic wooden furniture certainly adds to the comfort. There’s an en suite bathroom with some complimentary toiletries, a flat screen TV and air-conditioning for you to enjoy.
If you’re a fan of Italian cuisine, enjoy the bustle of a big city or simply love to stroll through galleries, museums and palaces, you’ll strike gold when coming to Turin. The city used to be the residence of the Savoy family – a former royal family of Italy – and, fans of luxurious opulence that they were, they made sure that the city was dotted with royal manors, palaces and beautiful Baroque and Renaissance buildings to treat the eyes of visitors. You simply can’t miss a visit to the Egyptian Museum of Turin, too – it’s the largest museum dedicated to Egyptian history after the one in Cairo!
When it comes to local delicacies, Turin will have you spoiled for choice. Apart from a special type of pizza typical to Turin, the city is also the home of bicerin – a hot beverage made from layers of espresso, drinking chocolate and whole milk that’s just divine. You’ll also be able to treat yourself to many types of chocolate like the local Gianduiotto. Need I say more?
