The Gallery of the Alpine Entrepreneurship in Turin: where elegance lives

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.

Turin: an amazing bike tour

Last time I wrote about a bike tour of Turin I described the amazing Park of Valentino and its attractions. This time I took a completely different route, 90% of which on reserved bike lanes which led me from my home, close to Piazza Statuto (Constitution square), one of the most important hubs of the city, straight to the Hunting Lodge of Stupinigi, just outside the city borders, 11 km to the south (6 miles).

A garden reborn: Venarìa Reale

Venaria Reale is a mighty Hunting Lodge, built in the 1600s by the former Italian Royal Family, just outside the city of Torino, the capital of the Kingdom. The gardens underwent an incredibly well conceived project to take them back to their original splendour based on the gardening styles used to renovate them through the centuries… with a touch of contemporary art also.
