From tucking into incredible food and drink (including truffles and Barolo), to enjoying stunning orange-roofed cityscapes, and exploring historic palaces and museums, there are plenty of things to do in Turin, Italy.
Fanfare please! Lonely Planet has just announced Italy’s Piedmont region as its No.1 Best In Travel region for 2019!
Just before the big announcement was made, I headed off on a top-secret trip to the principal city of Turin to find out what makes this part of Italy so special.
Despite Italy being one of my favourite countries, I’ve never been to this region.
