An afternoon in Torino

by oriettaIT

Dear VT friends,
I am going to spend a afternoon in Torino on 1 May waiting Arturo Brachetti's evening performance at Teatro Alfieri. I wonder about a car park that allow us to be close to the theatre. What places does you suggest to see in this few hours? and what about restaurants nearby?
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
Happy travels,
Orietta

Ciao Orietta,
The square where is Teatro Alfieri (Piazza Solferino) has a parking lot on one side (street level) 400 mt far. Under Via Roma (the very central street) there is a huge underground parking with diffent entrance. This is not cheap, but it is in the best position for a quick visit of the center (piazza San Carlo, piazza Carignano, Piazza Castello and the like) 8 minutes walk away the teather.
What kind of restaurants do you want? There too many to list all here.
(se preferisci puoi contattarmi direttamente via email)
ciao.
Marco

On May 1st, parking is for free (no fees on Holidays in town except for underground parking) and street parking space shouldn't be a problem for most Turinese will be out of town - including myself. My suggestion is to look for spots on Corso Re Umberto, on both sides of the street, by just keeping driving south from Teatro Alfieri along Piazza Solferino. Another option is Via Meucci just west from the middle of Piazza Solferino. Should you still have no luck, which I doubt about, try Corso Galileo Ferraris which runs parallel to C.so Re Umberto and three blocks from Piazza Solferino.
A decent dining option is right on the same piazza as the theater, just walk some 100 meters south on the same side and you'll find the "8 e 1/2" restaurant before Via Meucci.

Take a walk along Via Pietro Micca, Piazza Castello, Via Po, Piazza Vittorio Veneto. Don't miss the Mole in Via Montebello. On your way back, Via Carlo Alberto and Piazza Carignano.
On the corner of Via Po at Piazza Vittorio Veneto, the "Porto di Savona" restaurant is a good eatery.

Let me know if you need additional information.
Enjoy Torino ;)

Ciao

Ciao Ant,
I mailed to Orietta the very same "Porto di Savona" as first choice of local cuisine.
After the show, if they will too hungry to leave, the pizzeria "8 e 3/4" is just on the side of the theater. (maybe "8 e 1/2" is Fellini's copyright? :-)
Ciao.

Ciao Marco,
l'errore e' felliniano, "8 e 3/4" e' corretto e chiedo scusa per il quarto d'ora di anticipo!

Ciao

Travel Tips for Torino

Who Is Vittorio Emmanuel?

by Jetgirly

Corso Vittorio Emmanuele is the main street in the city of Torino, and also features prominently on the city plans of other Italian cities (ie Milano). There is a (large) monument to the (short) man at the intersection of Re Umberto and Corso Vittorio. Who was he? The first king of the unified Italy after the nation-states joined together and formed a Republic, and a member of the Savoy family whose influence reaches across Piemonte.

Tango... a passion in Turin

by marco2005

Turin has a real passion for tango. Do you know that many italian expats gone in Argentina were from Piedmont? (I do not suggest that tango was imported in Buenos Aires from Turin, but...).
Every night there is some place where you can go to dance tango, and you will find a lot of people doing so (the most young people).
There are many course of Tango, Milonga and Valz. And even in more clubs the tango is spreading out.

So here the list of the clubs where to go for a Tango. (asap I will create the pages with info on this clubs)

MON El Charro Cafè
TUE Da Giau + Aldobaraldo
WED Cafè Procope
THU La Viruta + Circolo Deangeli + Maison Musique + Aldobaraldo + Amici del Remo
FRI Aldobaraldo
SAT Salon de Tango (2nd and 4th sat of the month)
SUN Caffè Blue + Aldobaraldo

Langhe and Roero

by ant1606

Some 60 Km (40 mi) southeast of Turin lie the areas of Langhe and Roero, respectively south and north of the city of Alba.
Not only this land is the production area of the most famous and prestigious Italian wines, but its kind and diehard people, cuisine and landscapes definitely deserve a well-worth visit. Top produces, other than wine, are cheese, truffle, mushroom and hazelnut.
We Piedmontese sometimes refer to this land as the "University of Taste", and we're not wrong as this is home to the finest typical local dishes. A myriad of villages and small towns where stayfarms offer relaxed accommodation and excellent food with dining views over mountains and hills covered by extensive vineyards.

Even a simple day drive or ride through the area is an eye-filling experience. Nevertheless it's a prime destination for Turinese motorcyclists - including myself!
WARNING: don't drink and drive!

Directions:
Some 60 Km (40 mi) southeast of Turin
