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.
