Actually, not the car - even though I like the car and love the film - this is my Turin Christmas Bucket List.
Where to stay
Hotel Victoria - chosen for it's central location and wonderful spa with indoor heated pool.
What to see
Borgo Medievale - a complete medieval village with castle, towers, gardens, ramparts, a tavern. Situated in Parco del Valentino Viale Virgilio 107. Entry is free except the castle (Rocca) which is €5. Closed Mondays.
Egyptian Museum - an absolute must. Basic tickets €15 + €2 online booking fee. No large bags or rucksacks permitted. Situated in Via Accademia delle Scienze 6. There is a small café located on the 1st Floor (access from Room 7 - Tomb of Kha).
Turin Shroud Museum - open daily 9.00-12.30 / 3.00-7.00. Price €8. Situated in Via San Domenico 28, (10 mins walk from Turin Cathedral).
Where to eat & drink
Caffe Mulassano - Piazza Castello, 15
Bar Platti dal 1875 - Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, 72
Al Bicerin dal 1763 - Piazza della Consolata, 5
Baratti & Milano - Piazza Castello, 27. The gold and black shop front is gorgeous!
La Divina Commedia - Via S. Donato, 47. Pizza!
Pfatisch - Via Sacchi, 42. Chocolate!
Farmacia del Cambio - Piazza Carignano, 2. Not an apothecary as the name might suggest but a place for a chocolate food experience.
Ristorante del Cambio since 1757 - Piazza Carignano, 2. Exquisite décor. Fine dining.
Gelateria Pepino est. 1884 - Piazza Carignano, 8. A bit touristy.
Bar Cavour - Piazza Carignano, 2. Gorgeously dark cocktail lounge, part of the 'del Cambio' complex at the same address.
Gaudenti - 3 locations around the city. Nice pastries.
