Christmas In Italy

or just a weekend break...

What better way is there to spend Christmas than spending it in Italy? None that I can think of! Having spent many a Christmas in Turin I can highly recommend you do the same.

If you need a hotel in Turin the Principi di Piemonte is a good one.

Torino Hote

Whether you are planning to spend Christmas, a long weekend, or Easter then this hotel is perfect, set right in the heart of the main shopping and nightlife area of Turin.

Don't just take my word for it - check out what previous guests have said.

Turin's luxury hotels are fewer and less grand than the luxury hotels Venice can offer but the Principi di Piemonte is certainly one of my favourites.

I always recommend this hotel, or the even better Grand Hotel Sitea, to friends and family who are looking for a good hotel in this my old home city.

It might only be a four star hotel but its understated elegance and ideal location in the heart of the city make it a better choice than the other couple of five star options. 

The hotel offers good service and the rooms are large and well finished. Everything has recently been refurbished, in an old world sort of way, which I like but perhaps it will not be to everybody's taste. Still if you are visiting Italy you no doubt like "old"  so the décor shouldn't worry you too much.

Wonderful restaurants, museums and shops are literally on your doorstep and the upper floor rooms have lovely views across the city.

The only problem is that getting a booking is never easy!
