Friday 2nd Jan - We left Padova to head for Torino (also called Turin) which caused some confusion when booking the hotel. Torino is what the Italians call the town, Turin is the english version of the name. It's the fourth largest city in Italy after Rome, Milan & Naples. It was the first capital of the united kingdom of Italy from 1861 - 1865 and home to the Royal family.

Liz is also a skilled therapist and has completed a degree in ...
Day 294 2 hrs, 3.6 kms Of course I've got to check out a town with a name like this! I get off the train just as high school students get out for lunch break and join a crowd of them in a doner shop for a sandwich shop. Nice town to wander around in, with part of the city up on a ridge, with some castle like homes... and yes, you can buy a bra in Bra, in case you were ...
