Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to the Grand Hotel Sitea, Turin

In the centre of Turin, near the Piazza Castello, the Grand Hotel Sitea is a four star property that was originally built at the beginning of the 1900s. Perfectly situated for exploration of the Old Town, shopping, and leisurely strolls, this location appeals to all clients. The refined style of the lobby introduces guests to the signature class of the hotel, with marble floors, half pillars, a grandfather clock, and tastefully upholstered wooden chairs. An extensive menu of exclusive dishes is served in the gourmet Carignano restaurant, alongside a specially-designed Piedmont tasting menu. 'Empire' decoration blends the sense of tradition with the innovative flavours of the food. While you dine, you can admire the views over the pretty internal garden. After dinner, enjoy a drink in the relaxed ambience of the American Bar, in one of the leather armchairs, or on a stool beside the wooden bar. Guestrooms at the hotel are comfortable, colourful, and spacious. Rich reds and blues complement the crisp white bedlinens, and the large windows. The higher the category of your room, the grander its style. Double-layered curtains and antique writing desks add sophistication, while thick rugs add cosiness. Suites at the Grand Hotel Sitea adopt a neutral, minimalist colour palette, which emphasises their size. A few nights in these comfortable rooms will sit perfectly as part of a rail or fly-drive tour of Italy, giving you freedom to explore Turin and the wine towns beyond.

About Turin

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Turin is a chance to explore the capital of Piemonte in Northern Italy. Turin is renowned for an eclectic selection of things, including hard chocolate, Fiat cars, and the mysterious Turin Shroud. Popular for its proximity to the ski slopes in winter, in summer Turin is a cultural and historic hub. Its legacy as the brief capital of Italy before the country’s unification is still evident in the grandeur of its streets, which are smattered with monuments to Savoy royalty and lined with arcaded shops and cafes. The atmosphere of the city is distinctly calm, but still with a real sense of the typically Italian bustle and life, making it the perfect base from which to venture out and explore the wine towns and villages of Piemonte as well as the historically important sites of the region.

Cultural highlights of Turin

The Mole Antonelliana, with its distinctive spire and cinema museum, the Piazza Castello at the heart of the city, the grand Savoy Palazzo Reale, the former senate-house and prison Palazzo Madama, the historic and elegant cafes, the Cattedrale di San Giovanni Battista, where the Turin Shroud is currently held, the Museo Egizio, dedicated to Egyptian artefacts, the Reggia di Venaria Reale, one of the largest royal residences in the world, the Basilica di Superga, final resting place of the Savoy family, and the Castello di Rivoli, bursting with contemporary art.

Festivals in Turin

The summer in Turin is punctuated by a number of festivals. The Festival delle Colline Torinesi sees a number of local and national theatre productions take to the stage. The International Jazz Festival of Torino also takes place in the summer and is most enjoyable in the evenings. It attracts a number of famous international names. To appreciate authentic Italian music, attend the Traffic Torino Free Festival, where performers capture the best of each genre on various stages. In November, however, visit Turin to see the Turin International Contemporary Art Festival, which features pieces from 150 of the world’s most well-respected art galleries. In the autumn, the Terra Madre attracts thousands of chefs from across the world. For something more modern and unique, attend either the VIEW Conference or VIEW Fest, both of which look at emerging developments in 3D technology and digital cinema.

Gastronomy in Turin

Around the city, you will come across the three main venues for Turin’s characterful cuisine: the restaurants, the eating houses, and the small international eateries. In this way, Turin offers everything from fine dining to cosy, authentic, hearty meals. Antipasti is particularly popular here, encompassing Albese meat, vol au vent, omelettes, and tuna soup. The seafood influence that is most evident in the dishes of the restaurants, is a result of the many nationals who moved north from southern Italy. Pasta, too, plays a large part in the cuisine of the area. Try tajarin, pasta made with egg, buckwheat pasta soups, butter and sage ravioli, or risotti with beans and salami. Other key ingredients in the hearty food include braised meats and cheese, especially gorgonzola. For dessert, we would recommend trying one of the many chocolate and nut based cakes. Gianduiotto is the most famous chocolate from Turin.

Travel around Turin

Being in such a large city necessitates good transport links. The trains in from and to Turin ensure that travelling to and from your destination is incredibly easy, particularly if you are visiting as part of a rail touring itinerary. Within the city, the bus and tram links are also exceptionally comprehensive, running from 5am until 12am. It is very convenient to move from one side of the city to the other by public transport, meaning that every attraction is within easy reach. This is also a better option to driving around with a hire car. It is important to remember that most tickets run with a time limit as well as a destination.
