Torino

"A man who does not love Italy is always more or less a barbarian."

    Skiing on the Milky Way

    The Milky Way ("Via Lattea" in Italian and "Milky Way" in English) straddling the Franco-Italian border connects the Montgenèvre ski resort with those of Sestriere, Sauze d'Oulx and San Sicario. This is a very large area that hosted the Turin Olympic Winter Games in 2006. A few words and pictures in this blog article to find out if the ski resort is a nice idea to travel?

    Museo d'arte orientale Torino

The place is located in a quiet lane, not far from the large open-air market of the city in the area of the "Porta Palazzo" and the Umberto I covered gallery. Several floors allow visitors beautiful cultural discoveries in the form of showcases exhibiting objects, figurines, paintings, sculptures and frescoes of large sizes etc....

    Turin Market Porta Palazzo

    The Turin Porta Palazzo market is well worth a visit, as some tourist guides describe it, probably mistakenly, as the largest open-air market in Europe. The prices of food would allow all French great savings, especially since the products have all the attractions of a good quality.

    Turin Palace Hotel

    A nice hotel in the city center of Turin. Located a few meters from the central station Porta Nova, by which trains arrive from the Alps (Oulx for the High Alpine...). The hotel has a really nice spa, ideal for relaxing after a day out in the city center, between shopping or cultural visits.
