Those fond of Italian cuisine will love the high-end food market Eataly which is just a short walk from the hotel in the Lingotto district of Turin. The chain first opened in 2007 in a former vermouth factory and is now a celebrated food hall specialising in authentic Italian foods and delicacies; from a selection of cured meats to artisan chocolate. The district is most famous for the vast and iconic Fiat automobile factory which dominates the skyline and was notably featured in the classic 1969 film The Italian Job.

Visitors to Turin can escape the city by crossing the nearby Po River and spending a day at the Europa Park which is situated in the neighbouring Susa Valley. Situated in the hills at an altitude of 368 metres above sea level, the park offers its guests unrivalled views over the valley and the sprawling city of Turin. This public park is a great alternative day out for both couples and families on their city break during the warmer summer months.

Hotel guests may either choose to take the short walk to the city centre or catch a train from the nearby Lingotto train station. Turin’s most popular tourist attraction is the Turin Shroud which is housed in the Cathedral of St John the Baptist. Said to be an artefact depicting the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the shroud attracts considerable mystique and is a must-see for any trip to Turin. The Egyptian Museum of Turin is within walking distance of the cathedral and boasts the largest collection of Egyptian artefacts outside of Egypt, making it the perfect next-stop for those interested in history and culture.
