2009 Trip - Italy - Planning, Part 7

Torino To-Do List

On to Torino from Lake Como - just for a couple of days, though, before we head to Piemonte. So, once again, we have to cram a lot of sightseeing into two days.


The Egyptian Museum is definitely something we want to see. It contains the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts outside of Egypt.

The Mole Antonelliana is called the symbol of Torino. It houses the Cinema Museum, which sounds like a really interesting experience.

And then there is the CHOCOLATE! Torino is known for its chocolate, called Gianduiotto - a combination of cocoa, sugar, and hazelnuts. A visit to Caffè Al Bicerin is definitely on the schedule! Here is a great review from Slow Travel.

Almost forgot! We want to be sure to visit Eataly in Torino. It is said to be the world's biggest food and wine center. This I have to see!

The Egyptian Museum and the Cinema Museum are two of my favorites! I really enjoyed my time in Torino. I think you will really enjoy your time there. Lots of fun shopping, great food, beautiful buildings, great museums, etc.

Nancy, I'm with the others who are saying this is going to be so special travelling with you. I am going to make a list of your faves and will definitely try to work them in whenever I can get there. You are really doing such a great job planning. That's such a huge part of taking a trip that is so pleasurable. Bravo to you for your planning.
