Why you should visit Turin, Italy

Branded as the forgotten city, due to the fall of tourism it has received throughout the years, Turin boasts elegance, as well as culture and scenery. Your eyes will thank you when you visit Turin!

Situated close to the French border, the charming small city of Turin is a Northern Italian treasure. Easily accessible by train, in particular, the frecciarosa, Italy’s high-speed train, you can see yourself in Turin from Milan is just an hour.

Having visited in winter, the temperature during the day was a disappointing one-degree Celsius; not even my layers could helping me overcome the cold air. However, it is a prime spot for skiing and makes for a magical Christmas as the amount of falling snow was beyond beautiful. I had the pleasure of walking through the snow all day.

This quaint city is home to 896 800 inhabitants and many delightful designer shops for everyone to enjoy. Your shopping experience will be taken to a new level when you are in Turin. Luckily I had the pleasure of pondering its Christmas market when I was there and had to say it was a better than in Milan.

Fun fact, Turin boasts the occupation of having the second largest Egyptian museum in the world, The ‘Museo delle Antichità Egizie’ is the only museum apart from Cairo that is solely dedicated to Egyptology. A place all Egyptian historians should most definitely take the time to visit.

Hopefully, I have inspired many avid travellers to experience Turin, at least once. I would recommend spending 2-3 days in this wonderful place to soak in their whole atmosphere. My next upcoming post will be my top things to do in the city to have a memorable experience. As always, wishing everybody happy travels!
