After our Milan, we took the train to Turin. Not expensive and it’s a two hours trip from Milan…
We stayed in a Best Western hotel in the city centre. The hotel was pretty good, breakfast included, fitness centre, 24 hour reception, and well located. It is worth notice that the breakfast included unlimited Nutella, just putting that out there for those Nutella enthusiasts.
Turin is less crowded and more “spaced” than Milan, the streets are wider and you have more room to walk on the sidewalks, probably is just my perception as I do not like overcrowded cities, I like to have a personal distance of at least 2 meters away from people that I do not know.
Turin looks more like an industrial city than Milan, after all the city is an automobile producer. GM is based there, next to the Politecnico di Torino.
I liked Turin, not for leaving but for spending a weekend is perfect, by the way visiting the Egyptian museum is a must.
