Truly Turin

Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL -

Famed for its ar­chi­tec­ture and cul­ture, Turin’s baroque build­ings, cute cafés and vine­yards are re­ally worth ex­plor­ing. You can eas­ily spend a day or two look­ing round the grand squares (es­pe­cially the shops and wine bars that sur­round them) like Pi­azza’s San Carlo and Pi­azza Castello. Bel­lis­sima! SEE en­joy a scenic hour’s drive through the vil­lage of alba, one of italy’s best-kept se­crets. alba’s the home of ceretto Wine (ceretto.com), where you can learn the dif­fer­ence be­tween Barolo and Bar­baresco wine be­fore vis­it­ing the restau­rant to try its three-miche­lin-star 21, 31, 41, 51 salad – hand­picked that same morn­ing from their im­pres­sive veg­etable gar­den. EAT Try en­o­club (caf­feum­berto.it), an un­der­ground din­ing room in the heart of alba that em­braces tra­di­tional Pied­mon­tese cui­sine with lo­cal in­gre­di­ents, including black and white truf­fles. We rec­om­mend the 30 egg pasta fol­lowed by the amaretto and choco­late panna cotta. With 600 wines on of­fer, this is def­i­nitely liv­ing the ital­ian dream... DO Drive to the na­tional au­to­mo­bile mu­seum (museoauto.it). it’s home to one of the rarest car col­lec­tions in the world and is the per­fect place for some stylish in­sta back­drops. car-ob­sessed or not, it’s hard not to get ex­cited when you see so many orig­i­nal ve­hi­cles on show. There’s also a great café and gift shop too.
