Plenty of us luxury travelers find Italy thrilling. But its very popularity can make us feel lost amidst throngs of other visitors to Rome, Florence, and Venice.

If you long to experience Italia not as a tourist but as a local, Europe-based Guest Author Maureen Jenkins has just the place.


Torino, also called Turin, is a historic royal capital dramatically perched in the Italian Alps. Torino is primarily a working city, not a tourism magnet, so visitors feel part of daily life.

Torino's daily pleasures range from soul-stirring Baroque palaces to the trend-setting, original Eataly emporium.
