Friday 2nd Jan - We left Padova to head for Torino (also called Turin) which caused some confusion when booking the hotel.

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.
