Visions of Turin and surrounding mountains : Italy

This summer I got to spend some time in Europe, and after a visit to France and Denmark and before a visit to Finland, I had a few days to explore new regions of Italy I haven’t explored before. The chosen base was Turin, up on the north west near the mountains, and so I started from lovely Turin, rented a car to head up the mountains to the north and finally taking a drive to the coast to Genoa.

I had a lovely rooftop studio Airbnb near the center, and saw quite a bit in and around the center, all walkable, with surprisingly wonderful architecture and one of the best speciality museums I’ve been to recently hosted in a former synagogue and offering spectacular views of the city from above.

 

To give you a taste of the adventures, here are my photo walk visions of Turin.
