Synopsis

Synopsis

This friendly and easy-to-use book will guide you—effortlessly, and at just the right tempo—through the cultural, artistic, and culinary generosity of a beautiful city. —Alice Waters

Nestled between the Alps and the Po River, Turin was hailed by Le Corbusier as the most beautifully situated city he'd ever seen, and by Giorgio de Chirico as the “most profound, most enigmatic, most disquieting city not only of Italy, but of the world.” Today Turin, an elegant city of more than a million people, with views of the Alps around every corner, is home to Italy's most vibrant contemporary art scene, as well as 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, from the one-of-a-kind Museum of Cinema to the world-renowned Museo Egizio, which holds the most significant collection of Egyptian artifacts outside of Cairo
* personal recommendations for hotels, restaurants, cafes, 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
