I posted a photo on my facebook page today and to my great surprise it went viral.
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.
Palazzo Madama is a National Monument. Before being a Museum, hosting a prominent collection which spans from the Romanesque and Gothic artifacts, to the local Renaissance paitings and the Baroque architecture, it is one of the oldest building in town, as well as one of the oldest in Italy.
I believe that a simple and cheap way to discover a new city, including the areas that are out of the tourism circuits or that are not home to a famous or specific attraction it to buy a tickect for a tram and ride it from its origination until the final stop.
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
Among the most amazing buildings in Piedmont Region (north west Italy) a special place is taken by a Romanesque-Gothic abbey built more than 1000 year ago on the very top of the Pirchiriano Mount, at 962 meters above the sea level (3.156 ft) called “Sacra di San Michele” (Holy Abbey of Saint Michael).
My latest bike tour took me to the so called "rivers junction park" located at the north west corner of the city.
