  • Soufriere Town Square Soufriere Town Square

    • From: gmaso
    • Description:

      The Soufriere Town Square with the Church of the Assumption at the far end and the morning street market in the foreground. The interior of the church is rather pretty although somewhat simple. The street market spreads out throughout most of the downtown area and many of the resorts in the area buy their fresh vegetables and fruits there in the mornings.

      When arriving by plane to Turin, you’ll be landing at the Aeroporto di Torino. Unless you want to take a cab(which would cost about 30-40 euros), the SADAM bus(about 7 euros one-way) is the cheapest way to get to the city center. If you want the get to the center of the city, you’ll get off at the Porta Nuova Railway Station. I studied abroad in Turin for 4 months, so I was very aware of the metro, train and bus schedules. If you plan on staying in Turin for a week or more, it may be smart to get a settimanale(weekly) or mensile(monthly) metro/bus ticket. You can pick one of those up at any Tabaccheria(tobbaco shop), but be mindful, sometimes they don’t carry them. So remember to ask if they know the closest place that sells them. Also, if you find an information booth, get a map! I still used one after months of living there.

            Now in Turin, there are many cafes, pizza places, kebabs, and other various food places. The first pizza place I went to was Primaepoi which is on Via Giovanni Battista Viotti, near Via Roma. This was the first thing I ate when I arrived to Turin and was surprised. The pizza was so fresh, but not in a greasy cheesy way. Everything was perfect, from the vegetables to the crust. Be prepared to eat what you get, because it you ask for a “to go” box, you will get looks from the waiter and everyone around you. “To Go” is a very American thing and you won’t find many places that do it. On that note, I would have to say that my favorite cafe(with “to go” cups) while I was in Turin, was definitely Busters Coffee on Via Cesare Battisti. Before we had wifi in the apartment, I would go there to do my work, blog and get ahold of family and friends through Skype. I would always get a chuckle, cause they would have signs saying “American breakfast/coffee” and as I read it, it reminded me how much more we eat then Europeans do. They would make amazing drinks and I was a fan on their shakes/smoothies. I would be so tempted to get a pastry, because they display it so well! My favorite kebab place was the Casa Del Kebab 12which is across the street from the 8 Gallery Lingotto. I know you didn’t go to Italy to go to the mall, but trust me, you’ll want to check it out. I still regret not buying more from these stores while I was there, because the fashion there is about 2yrs ahead of the US stores. My favorite stores were Cache Cache & Tally Weijl. When I needed groceries(that I couldn’t get at the outside marketplace), I would go to Pam, which was in the mall, but you had to go outside to enter the store. I would always find some awesome deals on poultry, fish and dairy there. While you’re in the area, you should cross the street to experience Eataly. From wheels of cheese to barrels of wine, it was a true Italian experience in one store. I know there are stores in the US now, but I would describe it as the Italian version of Wegmans. Now on the outside of the mall, if you walk towards the parking lot in the back, you’ll be able to see the Olympic Arch of Turin(bottom right corner of the photos). If you have time to cross the bridge, do it. It’s so interesting knowing that amazing athletes walked this bridge and many couples have left their mark on locks on the chain fences. I didn’t have my camera with me when I went over the bridge, but I won’t lie, I was a tad scared. The Olympic village was a ghost town. There was graffiti on the buildings and whenever the wind hit certain parts of the buildings/walkways, it just reminded you of a horror movie. I wish we could find uses to the old Olympic villages, instead of leaving them there to deteriorate. 

            While in Turin, you need to visit Porta Palazzo. If you’re walking down Via Settembre, it’s a straight shot to it. When I lived there I was across the street from a store called Tiger. I think that’s where all my money went towards honestly! It’s just a cute store that’s filled with the most random of things. You could get large packets of loose leaf teas, luggage tags/flying items, cute little toys/games, toiletries, cards, spices, candles, a bottle of champagne and etc. Still hoping we get them in the US soon! So continuing, on you’re way down the street, you’ll go past the busy and store-filled Via Giuseppe Garibaldi. On that street, you can find stores like Promod, Nike, L’Occitane Provence and an amazing gelato place called GROM. Further down, you’ll find yourself in an open space with a church to your right. If you have time, you must visit the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. If you haven’t heard about the Holy Shroud, you need to read up and go inside! There’s a replica of the shroud inside the church, but every 5 years or so they display the real one to the public. Continuing down the road, to the left you’ll see a dog park. This was my favorite part of going to the marketplace, because every time I missed my dogs, I would just walk to the park and the dogs would attack me with kisses! Once you hit the end of the grassy park, you turn left and walk down the street until you walk into the market. Now mind you, be very careful about your wallet or purse. There are gypsies and pick-pockets everywhere and there is barely any space for you to walk since it’s so busy. When you first walk in, there’s a walkway near the front where I would get the best prices for onions, carrots & potatoes(1 Euro for 2-3 kilos). Of course I will admit it, girls, if you smile & flirt with the sellers, you get more! Every time I went down to this guy’s booth, he would remember me and automatically knew what I wanted, put it in 2 bags, and gave me a great deal. Remember, you have to go through the whole thing to find the best prices for food. There was also a pizza booth and pastry booth that I went to every other week and both of those people spoke a bit of English. Not going to lie, the pastries were my favorite part! You had to make sure to get there early or all the best ones would be gone. I also bought a few scarves down at the market and still to this day get compliments on them! Now, the marketplace is not open on Sunday mornings because it turns into one big garage sale. From bikes to american dollars, there is a bunch of random stuff for sale. Most of the people here don’t speak Italian, so it’s harder to communicate with them. I was actually able to talk a guy down and bought a twin reflex camera for a good price. The coolest part is that the camera says on the side that it was made in the USSR. It’s my favorite film camera to date!

            Now for the art/music fanatics, you have a good amount of choices. Just walking down the streets, mainly near the piazzas(squares), you’ll hear street musicians and see street entertainers. If you’re interested in seeing some history, you should check out the Museo Egizio(Egypt Museum), Armeria Reale(Royal Armoury), Museo di Antichità(Antiques Museum) & Palazzo Reale di Torino(The Royal Palace of Turin). While I was there, I was able to see a Henri Cartier-Bresson gallery show at thePalazzo Reale. As a photographer, it was a once in a lifetime event(Especially since I got to go to a da Vinci show outside of Turin and saw his original sketches/artwork!). Another museum you need to go to it the Museo Nazionale del Cinema(The National Cinema Museum), which is inside the Mole Antonelliana. Inside you’ll see props, clips from movies, costumes and so on. I think the cutest part is the viewing room that has the multiple toilets as the seating area. At the bottom level, there’s an lift that brings you all the way up to the top of the Mole. It’s scary as heck if you’re afraid of heights, because the lift is transparent, so if you’re scared of height, DO NOT LOOK DOWN! When you exit the lift, you’ll get a 360° view of the city and the Alps. Honestly, it’s totally worth the money, because it was so memorable! The photos I took while up there were unreal. For the music buffs, if you’re around the area during a concert or performance, you should go see one at the Teatro Regio diTorino or the Orchestra Filarmonica di Torino. If you’re there around the end of April/beginning of May, you should check out the Torino Jazz Festival. I got to see Dionne Warwick and she was amazing! Another event to go to(and you would have to look into it) is the Chocolate Festival. All I can say is “Chocolate…..sooooo much chocolate!”. I believe it was near the end of February, but don’t quote me on that. I spent a lot of money on sweets, but there are also lots of freebies! It is truly a chocolate lover’s dream getaway. 

            I hope this helped a bit. I know Turin isn’t as fancy and popular as Florence, Milan or Rome….but it’s worth the trip! If you want more suggestions, you should check out Lonely Planet.com, since that’s how I survived Italy. I would read their book about Italy almost every single night!

      A Morada is a church of specific design used by the Catholic Penitente sect  in northern New Mexico. This one (now privately owned ) in Arroyo Seco northeast of Taos, compliments the sunset light on the Sangre de Christos mountain range after an autumn snow. The light in this area is transcendent which explains why such artistic luminaries as Georgia O'Keefe and Ansel Adams were drawn to this region.
