A Civilized Traveller's Guide to Turin
By Eugenia Bell
Turin's breathtaking views of the Alps made it the perfect setting for the 2006 Winter Olympics. Yet beyond the slopes and the stadiums, Turin offers a dazzling array of cultural pursuits, extraordinary architecture, sophisticated shops, and food and wine that are an epicurean's dream. A Civilized Traveller's Guide to Turin features detailed listings of Turin's cultural attractions; the author's personal recommendations for hotels, restaurants, cafés, and shops; walks through the city's medieval, Baroque, and modern neighborhoods; suggestions for short trips around the region, ideas for what to do with children, and more.
