THE CAPITAL OF THE ITALIAN KINGDOM, BAROLO WINE AND TRUFFLES

Sat October 7 - Sun, October 8

Cost: 300€

Turin is a striking, clean, and compact city of Italy's Northern region of Piedmont. It is a town of many beauties, that has been described as lively and splendid. There is certainly something for everyone in this city, which has flourished since its heyday in the 17th and 18th centuries. You can find anything from Baroque churches and palaces, to metal work, and a modern day Olympic Stadium. Turin also houses the second largest Egyptian museum of the world, after Cairo.
The ancient principality of Piedmont, the cradle of the Italian nation, and literally translates into 'at the foot of the mountains,' sits at the basin of the Alps. As its proximity would suggest, there are heavy French influences to be found in this region, especially in the peculiar culinary traditions. This area, in particular the low rolling hills known as the Langhe, is famed for its cuisine and considered to be the best in Italy by many. Chocolate and truffles are some of the local specialties. This region is also the home of the Nebbiolo grape, the variety that produces two of Italy's most famous wines: Barolo and Barbaresco.
