TORINO BUSINESS TRAVEL FOR THOSE WHO GO FORWARD

written by Bridget Brackett

Ostuni città bianca

In town you can breathe a 'very aristocratic air with wide streets which are sharp beautiful neoclassical building with porch. When I visited Turin was late November and elegance of the city was marked by very special Christmas decorations.

For several years the city of  "Turin Lightning Christmas Decoration" offers scenes with different themes designed by contemporary artists, art that illuminate the different places of the city giving Christmas mood unusual or rather "cosmic".

Wandering through the center is continually affected by various architectural wonders such as Piazza San Carlo, Piazza Castello, Safe Acaja, Palazzo Madama and the background to the city of snow-covered Alps.

The greater charm Turin buys the evening when the Po River running through it, slides along the shimmering shores of the city and invites the Murazzi (typical charming bar).

Illuminated by far dominate the landscape of the city and the Great Mother of God of Mount Cappuccini.Torino also has a fascinating architectural post-industrial establishments such as ingots, which has been converted to commercial center and trade fair visitors and nell'andirivieni reconfirm the 'importance of Turin as a major industrial center in Europe.
