Turin (Torino) doesn’t always make it on the itineraries on people’s tours of Italy, but those that do visit are in for a treat – quite literally. Turin was the birthplace of the individually wrapped chocolate bonbon (grazie mille!), and it is still a major center for chocolate production today. It was newly unified Italy’s first capital, but now it’s mostly know it for its Holy Shroud, Fiat factories and hosting of the 2006 Winter Olympics. With tree-lined boulevards, snow-capped Alps on the horizon, fashionable boutiques, baroque palaces, art nouveau mansions and an innovative culinary scene, this underrated Piedmont treasure may surprise you.
