Classing It Up in Turin

Palaces. Opera houses. Gardens. After getting to know beautifulrusty Bologna, Turin felt like an extravagance. I arrived knowing little more than the following about the fourth largest city in Italy:
  • It is home to the famous Shroud of Turin, which some believe to be the shroud in which Jesus was buried. 
  • Italy's royal family, the House of Savoy, lived there.
Given its royal history, I figured that Turin would be elegant, but I'm not sure I bargained for this:


The streets and plazas were spotless.

And floor to ceiling mirrors. Yes.

And chandeliers. Chandeliers, people!

Sir Gnome, sophisticated gentleman that he is, absolutely loved it here. I mean, just look at the excitement on his face.

Here's to living pretending to live lavishly.
