Turin will surely hit you with its dual role: by day it is elegant and calm, by night it exhibits its vitality and offers you everything it has to have fun.
A typical Turin tradition
The aperitif is for the Turinese as anchivies are for ‘bagna cauda’. When the sun goes down you cannot miss a good aperitif to be enjoyed peacefully. It is in those hours that Turin changes its robe and is ready to show you all its romance.
Each neighborhood has its own uniqueness, you are spoiled for choice. San Salvario is full of typical restaurants to suit all tastes. Walk through the streets between Via Garibaldi and Porta Palatina, you’ll feel to be in an ancient medieval city.
You cannot miiss good wine and Piemontese meat. But even here, your tastes and preferences will be satisfied by a long list of restaurants ready to welcome you, whether you love Asiatic cuisine, veg cuisine or quality hamburger. You can also taste the typical ‘pizza al tegamino’.
Turin and ‘Luci d’Artista’
From October to January, Turin lights up with an open-air contemporary art exhibition. Illuminated artworks are made by internationally renowned artists.
Running into them during an evening walk will be a pleasant surprise. It’s like being in a museum. The artworks, of great artistic value, enhance the squares of Turin and frame your photos.
