Re: August in Torino

by Jetgirly

I was in Torino for the first ten days of August in 2005 and a lot of stuff was still open. The things that really close are the small, mom-and-pop type stores, restaurants and cafes. Things like museums, art galleries and churches should still be open.

Travel Tips for Torino

Piazza Castello - Castle Square

by ant1606

Although not the geometrically precise center of Torino, Piazza Castello is the center of gravity for downtown strolls and people watching. Four major straight streets departing from it are the most trodden in town and the best concentration of stores, cafes, ice cream parlors and more. Three of these four streets have porticoes to keep you dry in wet days and all of these lead to a square.
Directions from Piazza Castello are:
- North-West: Via Garibaldi, out of the four, is the only street without porticoes and banned to motor vehicles. Its length of over one Km (.65 mi) is paved with stone slabs all the way to Piazza Statuto and shopping here is an affordable practice.
- West: Via Pietro Micca is the link with Piazza Solferino and home to several beautiful buildings and artful portico ceilings. The cobblestone area comprised between its eastern half and Via Garibaldi is mostly pedestrian and hosts various crafts and arts stores.
- South-West: Via Roma is probably the most elegant shopping street in town - along with adjacent backstreets - and marble columns support its porticoes. Its middle section features the splendid Piazza San Carlo and Piazza CLN before opening onto Piazza Carlo Felice and Porta Nuova main train station.
- South-East: Via Po has some of the oldest stores in town. Historical cafes provide a unique ambience for an afternoon hot chocolate or delicious ice cream. The corner with Via Montebello gives a superb sight of the Mole Antonelliana. The opening on Piazza Vittorio Veneto, the largest in Europe, has a spectacular view over the city hill which lies beyond the Po river. Here, the "Murazzi" area awakens at dusk with lively nightlife. A few steps away from Piazza Castello, down Via Accademia Albertina to the south, lies Piazza Carignano with the magnificent brick building that hosted the first Italian Parliament. Considering it's only a 2-minute walk from Palazzo Madama - the western baroque facade of the Castle, former seat of the first Italian Senate, one can really think of being in the very heart of Italy at the time of its birth.
No matter if I walked or cycled here hundreds, perhaps thousands of times. I grew up with it and it's my special place on Earth.

Packing List

by call_me_rhia

Just like anywhere in italy pack some nice clothes unless you want to stick out as a foreigner. Italians really do dress well, even when they are wearing casual clothes. It doesn't mean designer clothes necessarily, it just means looking neat (even if simple) all the time... and believe me, it's not really that hard.

"Menabrea" - Brewery Visits in Biella

by ant1606

If Piedmont has a worldwide reputation for its wines, a few know that beer is not left behind.
Menabrea is produced in Biella since 1864. It would be reductive to consider it the best Italian beer, as it's been recognized as the best beer in the world. Several varieties have won gold medal prizes in the recent years at the Chicago Beer Championships.
The brewery and museum are open to visitors. There's a restaurant too and beer tasting is not to be missed.

For visits, contact the brewery:
Birra Menabrea
Via Ramella Germanin 4
Biella
Phone +39 (015) 252-2320

Biella is located ax. 70 Km north of Turin

Many routes to Turin

by vichatherly

I've taken many routes to Turin.

The best way of getting there is by plane, but I've also taken a long coach journey there, stopping off in Lyon on the way and Paris on the way back.

The picture is of the large Turin train station at night.

Country food

by Saagar about La Selvaggion

In the side valleys near Torino you will find several local communities that have splendid restaurants. During the skiing season they cater also for the ski crowd. I have been lucky to visit in the off-season, when the restaurnat staff has plenty of time and mainly local customers, and the food and the company and the atmosphere just incredible delightful. This is the place that started the concept of slow food.

One such place is La Selvaggio in the O'ulz valley, up in the community of San Sicario Trust the recommendations of the cook, and go in the direction you are most happy with: risottos, pastas, cheesy, veggies, dry, meat, fish. Trust also the waiter to come up with a genuinely good choice of wind that will go very well with your selected food.

The cook will compose a 4-course menu based on your rough selections. In busier times and seasons go for the day's set menues. You will get real Piedmontese food as good as it comes, with the local taste.
