Turin’s youthful atmosphere and growing cultural scene has given rise to an influx of incredible eateries within the city limits. While it might not be quite on par with larger cities like Rome and Florence, it’s quickly gaining traction among foodies from around the world. Here are a few of the best restaurants.
Turin has a reputation for catering to a young crowd, and no restaurant exemplifies this as well as La Barrique. Its Menu Giovanni is aimed specifically at guests under 25 and features a four-course meal and two wines at a reasonable price.
Diners at Magorabin frequent the restaurant to chat with its owner and chef almost as much as they do to taste his incredible food. Each dish is unique and made with some truly interesting ingredients, all of which the chef is happy to come out and describe in detail. If you’re looking for an informative and fun experience, this is the place to be.
Can you visit Italy without sampling at least one pizza restaurant? We think not! Mamma Mia is the best in town and offers a wide array of selections paired with local wines. The only thing potentially better here is the dessert; make sure to get your hands on some delicious tiramisu.
Stefano Fanti al Ristorante Circolo dei Lettori
Dining at Stefano Fanti is something of a cultural experience in Turin. The restaurant is located inside of a historic building where you’ll find yourself eating a meal inside of a library. Though it sounds quirky, this upscale joint features a fine-dining menu and some of the best wines in the city.
Vintage 1997 is conveniently located on the Piazza Solferino and is worth a visit just for the desserts alone. Most famous for its homemade gelato, the restaurant also features a sampling of five small desserts, cinque piccoli dolce, which is absolutely delightful. The engaging staff, eclectic atmosphere and scrumptious sweets make it a true local gem.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
The New Jersey shore is popular for more than the infamous MTV reality show. There are plenty of things to see and do between the beach and boardwalk. Hit up these spots if you want a great photo op while enjoying the sun and sand.
The Bwindi Field Tent is one of the most formidable tents for international travelers. Designed to provide safety for travelers and field researchers in remote locations, the tent provides comfort for up to three people at a time. When not used for sleeping, it can convert into a mosquito net to help cover your bed.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Start your day in Groton, Massachusetts, just a short drive outside of Boston, with a late breakfast on Main Street at Salt & Light Cafe.
