Turin: Best Cafés



Description:

Beguiled by their décor, tempted by their aroma, enthralled by their history, Turin’s coffee houses are unique. These cafés are the beating heart of this, historic, elegant and arty city. Modern Italy was created in and around some of these extraordinary cafés, reflecting Turin's 18th century baroque splendour. Today, Turin's 21st century future can be seen in the latest additions to this impressive café portfolio. This is not just about coffee however, these cafés offer a mouth watering selection of hot and cold drinks, delicacies and snacks, lunches and dinners. So sip a bicerin, enjoy a gelato, savour an apertivo and watch the Torinese in action..
