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.

"People are quite religious here" she goes on to tell me about the religious trips she has gone ...
... underwhelming, as palaces go, at least from the outside, and I'm not in the mood to pay a pricey entrance fee... let's go see what the rest of the city has to offer. Actually, the most impressive structure in Torino is little more than 100 years old. The Mole Antonelliano, is sort of a blend between a skyscraper, a cathedral and a Roman Temple. At the bottom it looks just like a classy 19th century building... then it tapers off at the top with ...
