travel tips 2 Turin

10 useful tips about Turin

1. Start your Italian travel from Turin or end it here: Turin has its own airport, TRN - well connected to Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Amsterdam and Madrid where you can connect to and from your international flight.


2. Check what events are going to be held during your visit: there's always something cool going on in Turin and the city can be crowded!

3. If staying more than a week, consider getting a local Italian sim card for your phone, you can buy it at the airport right when you land and in a phone carrier shop.

4. Best days for you Turin visit: Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Avoid Monday, Wednesday, Sunday...

5. Budget your café and restaurant stops 3 times longer than what it would be in the US: enjoy the Italian slower times, this is what you are paying for. 
Don't be in a rush, if you are just have an espresso at the counter and take away your meal.

6. Small vendors and artisans prefer being paid cash 💶

7. Look down for the stumbling stones scattered around the city and up for the strange faces on the façades.

8. Restrooms aren't always clean and readily available in Italy as in other countries, usually you will need to buy something in a café to use their restroom: seize the time when you sit down at a nice place!

9. Sample at least 3 different gelato places, 3 different chocolate producers, cafés and aperitifs: you'll be amazed by our local variety!
