Turin snapshots

As I mentioned, I’m now living in Turin (Torino). It’s not famous as a tourist destination, but (therefore?) it’s a great place to live. And (ssh! don’t tell anyone!) it’s actually pretty great from a tourist point of view, too. Some snapshots from the past 9 months:

Piazza Vittorio Veneto

Piazza Vittorio Veneto, looking much as it did in the 1800s.

Ponte Isabella

The river Po is just east of the historical centre. This is the Ponte Isabella in spring.

The #7 tram

The #7 tram. I hate to use the word ‘cute’ to describe part of a city’s transport infrastructure, but is there a better word for a tram like this?

La Mole

The Mole is Turin’s most famous building. It used to be a synagogue, but now it hosts the cinema museum.

View from the Mole

If you’re in Turin and the weather is clear, the one thing you should do that costs money is to take the lift up the Mole. Just look at the view!
