I never expected Turin to be tur-rific (sorry for the bad pun ;-P ). In my mind, it was just the cheapest option for transit from Madrid to Venezia. But after spending 25 hours in this laid-back city, I realized that Torino is not just a stop-off, it is an alluring sojourn that should be explored longer.
Maybe I got tired of crowded attractions in Spain. And to tour a beautiful city with 0 queues and only few annoying tourists was refreshing.
Here are some of the reasons why I loved Torino so much that I regretted not staying here for a long time:
I tried gelato and chocolates from La Bottega Guido Gobino and gelato from Gelateria Alberto Marchetti. I'm still drooling whenever I think of Turin's sweet desserts. <3
Known as the birthplace of pizza, Naples is the place to be if you're searching for the best pizza in the world.
Museums abound in Europe but the Museo Nazionale del Cinema surprisingly stood out for me.
I have never been to a place so magical that it made me wish that I did not travel alone… until I visited Venice, Italy.
I have survived a lot of things ALONE and actually enjoyed it ALONE; but I guess Venezia squeezed out the weak emotions hiding underneath my superficially courageous heart.
