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
There are days when you just want to escape the city jungle without traveling too far. Days when you want to take a break from the usual chaotic metro, yet you do not want to be away for a long time.
Pinto Art Museum lets you do that in a day: escape the city without burning your gas money. Located in Antipolo City, it is a mere 30-minute drive from Quezon City.
Most people are allergic when they hear “art gallery” or “art museum.” For non-art connoisseurs, sometimes it sounds too serious, boring, and artsy-fartsy. But fret not, art museums can also be FUN.
