Andiamo a Turino!

Travel Tuesday is going strong. A few of my classmates and I went on another adventure this week and we chose Turin as our destination. About 2 hours away by train from Milan, we made it a point to wake up early in order to get there at 11am. 

Turin welcomed us with a sunny and slightly warm 40F degree weather. I was excited to see what Turin had to offer. We started our day at the Royal Palace of Turin and I found myself going “OHHH” & “AHHHH” or “Wow”. Each room definitely lived up to what a palace entails because every detail was very elaborate, grand and lavishly decorated. Think red carpets with tall doors, ballrooms, high ceilings and/or gold sculptors. IMG_5714.JPGIMG_5598.JPGFront of The Royal Palace of TurinIMG_5599.JPGIMG_5601.JPGIMG_5609.JPGIMG_5611.JPGInside The Royal Palace of TurinIMG_5625IMG_5619.JPGEntering the PalaceIMG_5626.JPGFirst ballroomIMG_5664.JPGIMG_5687.JPGMy favorite room!IMG_5648.JPGLook at these details…..very very elaborate don’t you think?IMG_5658.JPGIMG_5651.JPGIMG_5639.JPGIMG_5628.JPGIMG_5669.JPGIMG_5698IMG_5614.JPGNever forget to look up 🙂IMG_5593.JPGAfter touring around The Royal Palace of Turin, we attempted to go to another museum and realized that most places were closed. In Milan, businesses are closed usually on Mondays but, I guess in Turin it’s on Tuesday. However, that never stopped us from exploring. We walked around everywhere. The weather helped because it stayed sunny the entire day motivating us to see as much as we could.IMG_5594.JPGIMG_5733.JPGMonte dei Cappuccini has one of the best view of Turin’s landscape. The walk up to this point was semi-difficult but, we made it and was well-worth it.IMG_5717.JPGIMG_5735.JPGIMG_5755.JPGIMG_5758.JPGIMG_5760.JPGIMG_5771.JPG
