We traveled to 3 cities in a week, Turin, Genoa and Milan. I tried to write one blog for the whole 7 days experience but seems I had too many photos, so I decided to make 3 parts. Here you are, part one- Turin.
We landed in Turin on 22 Sep. It was a gorgeous day and the temperature was a perfect 25C. The city is full of distinguished buildings, such a cultural city. The hotel we stayed in was so beautiful and from our room window we could see a typical Italian street scene, full of Latin character.
After coffee I could not wait to go out. My first outfit was the beautiful black lace skirt with a pastel floral pattern from H&M and as it was a nice day I had the chance to wear this cute, off the shoulder pinky top too.
The second day was Saturday and we went to the main shopping area, where the local youth were staging gymnastic activities on a stage set up in the middle of the road.
Here they tried to steal my phrase “Fashion is what you buy, style is how you wear it” but it got a little lost in translation :).
We then went on to Italy’s national Cinema Museum which is housed in an absolutely breath taking building which, sadly, you can’t fully appreciate from my photo.
On that day we walked for 6 hours. It was tiring but it was really enjoyable.
As our hotel was in the city centre we walked everywhere. On the 3rd day we went to a contemporary art gallery. As an artist, wherever I go, galleries are the place I must go. Very often I get inspiration from all the great works of art I see in these places.
After the gallery, we wondered along the street. Fallen leaves were everywhere. It seems autumn (fall – for any American readers!) has arrived.
Last thing to do before we move on is have a cup of coffee outside a beautiful street cafe where you can see the world pass by.
3 days in Turin. Love it here. Beautiful city, beautiful people and beautiful food 🙂
In the afternoon, after coffee, we set off to by train to our second city, Genoa.
