Then you’re off to another symbol of the city, the iconic triangular dome and spire of the Mole Antonelliana. Originally designed as a synagogue, this singular work of architecture is now home to the Museum of Cinema (also the tallest museum in the world!).
Now that you’ve seen Turin from the street and taken in its incredible history, like all Italian city’s it’s time to taste it! What could be better than some delectable chocolate ‘gianduiotti’ or pralines and a gelato at one of its most renowned venues? These delicacies are literally to die for, and we have organized a special guided tasting for you that will put a perspective on Turin that you’ll be talking about for the rest of your trip. You can even pick up a box of chocolates for your friends and family back home!
After the tour, wind up the day with the same quick high-speed train journey back to Milan and find yourself with plenty of time left over to enjoy your evening with an ‘aperitivo’ or dinner and a night on the town. There’s literally no excuse not seeing for yourself why Turin is getting so much attention these days as one of Italy’s top destinations.
