Turin. The first evening it was raining. Almost no one on the streets. The restaurants empty as a Calvinist hell. Pretty much the antithesis of any imagined Italian city. The next morning I looked through the hotel window and the sky seemed promising enough to go out for a long walk.Trying to find the elegance and beauty you may expect of a rich city in Northern Italy, still one of the wealthiest regions in Europe. Well, judge for yourself.
