The city of Turin evokes images of fast cars, delectable chocolates and bustling cafés. The latter should come as no surprise, as the city is home to hundreds of classic coffee-driven establishments, where some of the greatest Italian writers and artists of our age spent hours in quiet contemplation. When you fly to Turin with Alitalia, you’re sure to arrive rested and relaxed thanks to our extra-comfort seats and award-winning in-flight cuisine.
There are a number of architectural and artistic oddities within the city that are worth exploring when you travel to Turin. The most notable of these is the monolithic Mole Antonelliana, a towering brick-faced spire that now houses the National Museum of Cinema. The Museo Egizio should be your next stop, housing one of the world’s largest collections of ancient Egyptian antiquities, including over 30,000 artifacts and an entire reconstructed rock-hewn temple which was transported to the museum in pieces.
Café culture, delectable chocolates and evening aperitivos are staples of daily life here, and lend themselves well to the languid ruminations of winter. Book your tickets to Turin for November or December and enjoy a pleasant chill to complement the warmth of endless cups of steaming caffé.
