Travelling to Turin in December

by varunsadh

Hi,

I will be travelling to Turin from Dec 9 - 15, 2008. I am a Juve fan and the whole purpose of being in Turin for 6 days is to watch a couple of live matches. Luckily for me Juve - Real Madrid and Juve - Milan fall in this period. I want to ensure that I don't miss out on these matches and would like to buy the tickets way in advance. There's currently no information on Juventus.com and listicket.it regarding these or any other matches. Please help me to get the tickets in advance!

Next question is that, will I be better off staying in a hotel for 6 nights spending approximately 600-700 euros on a decent hotel or renting a short term apartment. How would the apartment cost me in a safe and central location? (If I stay for a month, I will be regularly travelling to Vinovo)

Next is the weather. I know it is going to be cold but how many layers would I require? I have lived in Boston which is probably worse than Turin but I have not been there for like 5 years now. So a few tips would be handy.

The most important question: Which are the best places to socialize with new people and meet beautiful women?

Thanks!

Varun

Can't help with the football, I'm afraid. Or with the meeting of women.

You should be able to get a decent hotel for less than 100 euros per night. Look at www.venere.com (a reliable site with honest reviews used by many VT-ers).

If you google 'turin apartments' you'll get a number of sites which will give you an idea of rental costs.

I very much doubt that Turin will be as cold as Boston in December. But the climate tables here

http://www.eurometeo.com/english/climate/city_LIMF/id_Tmax/meteo_turin-caselle%20italy

will give you an idea. Clothes you can layer (no-one can tell you how many, that depends entirely on the day itself and how your own body copes with the chill!), something you can wear when it rains, scarf, sunglasses.

Trying to predict the weather can be difficult because of local on the day variations.
This information should be used as a guide only.
Here is the average weather for Turin for this time of year.
Enjoy your holiday.

weather:
last year we had a warm winter here in Torino (never used my feather jacket or parka). And long term forecast (that means low reliability too) says that also this one will be not too cold.
watering holes:
there are a few areas: the so-called "Quadrilatero Latino" (right in the center), the "Murazzi" (riverside, more a summer spot), the downtown... pubs and restaurants are mushroomed there.
There is a little "movida", and a lot of events where to socialize.
Check the cultural web site and so on like http://www.torinoforum.it/ and http://www.torinocultura.it/pls/portal/url/page/frontoffice/homepage?pagina=home_en.html
ciao.
have a nice stay.

Hi, I can help you with an advice about where to stay. I've been recently in Turin and trough venere.com I've booked a room in "Hotel Original" for 45 euro's/night. It was great. They picked me up from the airport for 30 euro's (cheaper then with a taxi), breakfast was very good, rooms very clean and right in front the hotel there's a taxi parking.
As for the nightlife take a look on this site:

Have a great holiday and FORZA JUVE!

Travel Tips for Torino

there are many things to see...

by zico_arthur

there are many things to see and to do.
The very famous egiptian museum is the second of importance in the world after the Cario one.
It's the town of baroque and it was the FIRST capital of Italy from 1863 to 1867, in fact the unification of Italy started just from Turin (Torino in standard italian) where lived the Savoia dinasty. KEY WORDS OF TURIN ?
-THE SHROUD OF TURIN yep true or not it's a very famouse thing of Turin
-FIAT ( the car factory and offices are in Turin)
-LANCIA ( the car factory is just otutside the town)
-MARTINI ( yes ...just the worldwide famouse drink ..it's from Turin...)
-JUVENTUS ( the best soccer team in the world is also from Turin...)
-WINTER OLYMPICS 2006...yep it will be also an olympic town..
-ALPS yes the most important mounatain chain of Europe is about 30 kms from the town...30 minutes and you can snowboard and ski...and hear people italian yet...
-MURAZZI ( the coolest area of the town ...quite well known...pubs and discos open until 6 in the morning....well if you are kind with the barmen even later...)
-the POLITECNICO DI TORINO high prestige engineering school
-CSELT communications research centre...where the MPEG format (MP3... do you know?) was invented...
-ZONA CASTALIA : have you ever seen a club very crowded until 6 am on Tuesday? well if not...come here...very indie place... I miss the rainy days in Turin, its red wine that is simply incredible, its nightlife and its redondante baroque architecture and its attitude to be an european town while being very latin.

Vermouth

by ant1606

One of the typical products of Torino exported all over the world is Vermouth, probably best known through a few major brand names such as Martini, Cinzano and Carpano, which are the historical and original companies that first developed the drink in late 1700.
The base of Vermouth is wine added and fortified with flavoring herbs and, some say, absinthe.
First born Vermouth was the "red" variety followed by the "white" one. Today, market demands have dictated the addition of "dry", "blush" and a few other hues and flavors.

Porta Palatina

by Mikebond

Porta Palatina ("Palatine Gate") is the most evident trace of the Roman times of Torino, when it marked the Northern entrance of the city. It dates of the 1st century AD, like the theatre and it is one of the best kept Roman civic gates. It is in red bricks and consists of two 16-side towers and a fa?ade with windows. It has four fornices (i.e. transit arches): the two in the middle were for carts, the two lateral ones for pedestrians. Next to the gate stand two statues of Caesar and Augustus.

Turin TurismoBus

by AnnS

The Turin TurismoBus is a 'hop on, hop off' tourist bus that circulates around all the main places of interest. It runs every day between 10am to 7pm and visits each of the 15 stops once an hour. A multi-lingual guide is on board, giving a running commentary throughout the route. To use it, you need to buy a Torino Card which also entitles you to free travel on all urban, suburban and out-of-town public transport, free entry to most museums and places of interest in Turin and discounts on guided tours and other events. The card can be bought at Tourist Offices - 16 euros for 48hrs, 18 euros for 72hrs or 30 euros for 5 days. This is an excellent idea because you can criss-cross the city to your heart's content, either on the tourist bus or on the numerous buses and trams, without having to worry about buying tickets.

wine & fish

by zyxos about Il ristoro dei Mercanti

This is the first place I went to eat when I moved in Torino. It has good food and a decent wine list. The atmosphere is nice but I'd reccomend it for a lunch.
Besides its à la carte menu, it also offers 3 set menus and tourist menu. Agnolotti alla Piemontese
