I’ve visited Torino, (also known as Turin) twice since we moved to Italy. There is something magical about this town that makes me want more. More beautiful architecture. This Northern Italian city has feeling uniquely it’s own. To me, it feels French and Italian at the same time. I love the lacy balconies, grand cafés and arcaded shopping streets. More Piedmontese food. The food and wine are legendary here in Piedmont. The restaurant I visited last month had a meat cart, a cheese cart and a DIGESTIVO cart, all served table side. I’ve never seen anything like it!

It is also famous for the Slow Food event Salone del Gusto, that has been held here every 2 years since 1996. I was able to attend last month and it blew my mind! Torino is the location of the world’s first EATALY food store. Definitely a great town for foodies! More people watching. The first time I visited, I saw a man in a velvet cape walking his afghan hound. No lie. It was fantastic. More time breathing in the beauty and history and essence of Torino.
