Under $100 / Europe

In northern Italy, just below the Alps, visitors find sweeping mountain views and rich landscape — all surrounding historic cities with towering architecture of its own, like Turin. As the capital city of Piedmont, Turin is at the heart of northern Italy’s refined palate for all things wine and dining.

 

Turin is like a walking tour through time, which makes it a top contender for travelers on a budget. There is so much to see and do just while freely exploring the city streets. Picture Baroque buildings, grand town squares and enough attention to detail in that even the smallest café feels stately and important.

 

Start your day with a classic Italian breakfast in a nearby café or your hotel — a quick espresso and small pastry should do the trick for just a couple euros. Explore Turin’s boulevards and historic squares, including Piazza Castello and Piazza San Carlo.

 

A piece of architecture you would have to work hard to miss, the spire of Mole Antonelliana can be seen nearby. Along with the impressive building, explore its adjacent National Cinema Museum in the building’s 19th-century tower. Tickets range €2.50–15 per person, depending on if you want to visit just one or both sites.

 

Take a peak at the royal digs in the Royal Palace of Turin for €6–12 per person, or tour the Egyptian Museum’s tunnels and archeological wonders for €13.

 

Explore town on your own and take in the local culture. Shop through the markets and small boutique shops along the way. The city may be filled with ways to spend your money, but you’re going to want to save some for lunch and dinner, as Turin is renowned for its wine and cuisine.
