Over the weekend I flew to Turin. I was excited to head here as I’ve heard so many incredible things about the place. My 24 hours in the city definitely did not disappoint.
If you fly to Turin airport you can get a shuttle bus which takes you into the city for only 7 euros. The ride takes about 40 minutes but the journey is virtually stress-free. This is also the method of how I went back to the airport the following evening so I really recommend.
In the city itself, a must-see is the Egyptian museum! Now, let me just say I’m not usually a museum fan but this one took me by surprise. Tickets cost 15 euros for an unlimited browse around the place. You’re given headsets at no extra charge which explain the history behind everything in 7 different languages. It’s not hard to miss this place as it’s literally smack bang in the middle of the plazas.
Next I strolled to a bakery/café called ‘Freedom’ which is 100% Gluten-Free. As you probably already know, I have food intolerances so finding somewhere which caters to my needs was amazing, not to mention I had the best freshly baked bread I’ve ever tried. Prices are reasonable and range between 1 euro to 8 euros depending on what you order.
Another Gluten-Free blessing was a pizza place called ‘Pizza Queendici’. WOW. All pizzas can be made Gluten-Free but they do still serve “normal” pizzas if you’re travelling with people who don’t have intolerances. I would book a reservation though, despite getting lucky going without one, as the place was packed.
I spent most of the day exploring the streets and stuffing myself with gelato. For this reason, I don’t have an extensive list of things to recommend because I had zero set plans. I mean, the best holidays are usually the spontaneous ones, right? I always prefer to walk around and see what I can discover rather than planning everything down to a T. (Although I do wish I planned my trip to Belgium hahaha – see my previous post to understand what I’m talking about!)
Until then, see you in the next post
