Turim é o lar da indústria automobilística de Itália, onde a Fiat nasceu e curiosamente é também a cidade onde Nutella foi inventada – entrámos agora em terrenos perigosos, certo?
Turim é também a cidade do Museo Egizio, que contém a mais importante coleção de tesouros egípcios fora de Cairo. Entre seus muitos destaques estão uma estátua de Ramsés II (uma das peças mais importantes do mundo da arte egípcia) e a maior coleção de papiros do mundo.
Maybe is because of its elegant tree-lined boulevards and his stately art nouveau cafes but I can feel a touch of Paris in Turin. It was an unexpected surprise that proved, one more time, that Italy can be an entire world in just one country.
Turin is the home of Italy’s car industry where Fiat was born and is also the place where Nutella was invented- can you spot a better combo?
My weekend was a real escape to a fairy tail just like Turin, where you can stroll through the 11 miles full of wide avenues and grand squares, such as the Piazza Vittoria, where the Torinese mingle over aperitifs. Cradled by the rivers Dora to the north and Po to the east, the Alps on the northern horizon providing a constant compass point. It’s a non-ending list of beautiful places to see. At night, after a power walk day exploring the whole city, it was time for a plate of pasta (because low-carb people are not allowed to live in Italy, or at least to live like an Italian). So, I ended up my day with an amazing Pomodoro pasta at Signorvino.
Turin has also the Museo Egizio, that houses the most important collection of Egyptian treasure outside Cairo. Among its many highlights are a statue of Ramses II (one of the world’s most important pieces of Egyptian art) and the world’s largest papyrus collection.
