One thing that most of the visitors often take for granted is that Italy has always been one single Country. The truth is pretty different. I think it might be useful to offer you with another perspective and suggest a different travel itinerary based on the process which led the Italian Peninsula to unify itself under the flag of a single Monarch: the House of Savoy.
One of my favourite topics is Art. I haven't been writing about art in a while, thus I thought to go back to my very personal expert, Luca Simoncello, to discuss about his latest excursion to Venice, one of the best destination on earth for those who are mad about the arts.
Galleria dell'Industria Subalpina" is one of my favourite places in Turin. Its elegance and its nice atmosphere makes it perfect for a break between two of the most crowded Piazzas in town.
Venice becomes Venice as soon as you leave the most crowded allys or as soon as you turn a corner and end up in a “campo” where there are no commercial shops, but an old tavern, one of those with the wrinkled paper tablecloth and straw chairs.
In the past weeks I have explored quite a lot of my surroundings including places I do not visit very often or where I had never been before despite their proximity.
There is a chance now, to discover a large portion of the records of Turin by joining a guided tour promoted by a group of Local Guides
I believe I need a Local Guide for several reasons, even if I am a big independent traveller.
