Sunday 4th Jan - Aagh, today I woke up with the head cold the boys have had, so a bit of a slow start to the day. I convinced Rob to catch the metro instead of walking and we headed up to see the Monte dei Cappuccini Church built from 1583 - 1656, it sits high up on a hill overlooking the Po river and Torino.
