Welcome to My Italy in September

The best month of the year in Turin is September in terms of weather though I also love the city over Christmas - hot chestnut sellers, Christmas lights and often an open air ice rink in the main piazza surrounded by the Savoy King’s palaces. Turin really does offer a great Christmas atmosphere.

This month I will take you on a walking tour of Turin and visit some of Turin’s museums. We visit a monastery that is straight out of the film “In the Name of the Rose” and then for dinner I would suggest my local restaurant. Gianni, the owner, and his family know how to put on a great feast!! His stuffed zucchini appetizer is great and we have the recipe for you. If you like this e-zine please do a friend and me a big favor and "pay it forward."

1) Walking Tour of Turin

The best way to explore Turin is on foot. You will discover a city rich in surprises. Turin’s elegant colonnaded walkways lead to magnificent palaces, gorgeous avenues and mysterious little squares.

2) Museums in Turin

The variety of museums to be found in Turin is hard to beat. These include Europe’s biggest museum of Egyptology, Fabulous Art Galleries, Europe’s best Museum of Cinema, located in Turin’s version of the Eiffel Tower, and then of course there is the fruit museum!!

3) Monastery of San Michele

Not the cheapest but absolutely beautiful – if you would like to visit Italy in gracious style then these are the best options.

4) This Months Recipe

Here is my favourite recipe from Sardinia , ideal for those rainy autumn or winter days.

5) Why Not Learn Italian While Visiting Italy?

Combining a holiday in Italy with a language course is one of the best ways to really experience Italy. You learn the language, visit a beautiful part of Italy and experience the culture, traditions and cuisine with local people. Future visits are also that much more enjoyable once you speak the language. One of the best schools is the Dante Alighieri School in Mondavio.


That's it from me for this month but I will be back next month. September is a great time to visit Turin and I will let you in on a few of my favourite places in this elegant and exciting city.
