Turin is on top of my list of the cities to visit for 2013.

I travel to Milan at least once a year to visit my cousin but each time I lack the time to just hop on the train and visit Turin which in my eyes is one of the most beautiful and best kept secrets of Italy.

And in general, Piemonte is the best region and most wonderful place to live.

Somehow Piemontese or Tuinois hardly promote their own city to keep it as it is and a lovely authentic secret. Like a friend of me (Italian) told me once " we had to give away a lot to rich Americans or Asians, but Piemonte will stay ours"

I understand - there are many welcoming posters here. That is just one post.

And even if Americans are not welcome in Turin, I will plan to visit anyway - because it is so beautiful.

But why shouldn't Americans be welcome? I never heard about tourists not to be welcome... whatever nationality they are.
For many years Turin didn't aim to be valorized as a touristic city and still now the touristic offer is less structured than in other Italian cities. Nevertheless, just because less known, it could eventually offer visitors more captivating sights.

You people must better read my post. "I" didn't say such at all "MYSELF" ... then again, my friend from Turin who works for a multinational with many people from all around the world, didn't refer to nor suggest anything that should be interpreted the way you guys do being pretty much a racist thing.

What he meant and I just quoted was that while there are so many people from other places buying and living in mansions and towns across Toscany making it a very popular destination for everybody to the extent of which that even Hollywood rather always mention Toscany while there is a whole lot more to see and to mention in their movies when Italy is regarded, hardly nobody pays attention to the beauty of Piemonte.

Meaning: Piemonte is as beautiful as other regions like Veneto or Toscany, but has been somehow overshadowed by the popularity of those other regions and that being said, he then made a joke to say that at least they have Turin and the rest of Piemont all to themselves and to Italians, meaning rich Italians.

THAT is what he was trying to say.

So stop the nonsense please and read better through the lines.

I understand you're just reporting your friend's opinion, but I disagree with him. Piemonte is not known so much by Italians themselves, IMO. Often in local threads people from Turin compalin about the fact that Turin and Piedmont are understimated (ok, complaining is a sort of local hobby). For example, in the Langhe area or in some ski resorts in the Alps there are more foreign tourists than Italian tourists, mostly from Germany, England and Holland indeed. Regarding USA or Asia, I think there are different dynamics: Piedmont represents a niche market for tourists, being Rome, Venice and Florence actually much more attractive for people who come to Italy for a few weeks... and honestly I don't blame them. Mass tourism allows tourists to visit places that allow them to confirm the stereotypes about Italy they have in mind.

Clearly this is not an argument against what you say, I just think that we need to do better to promote the area. And most of all... thanks for your appreciation, I do hope your expectations not to be disappointed.

I'm agree with you

Peace & Love to everybody who want to come in Piemonte!

...and about chocolate, these are the most popular and historical cafè in Turin. They are not very relating with Baroque style, but I think that entering in one of them is like looking Stupinigi, they leave you gaping!

I want to say that anybody can take a coffee in those luxury bar. You can take a coffee for 1,10euro.

@Normy89: I think you can talk about Fiorio in Via Po and Bicerin in Consolata Square. It's important to say who went often there in the past and what is a bicerin.
