Where to stay
The best new player in Turin is Hotel Residence Torino Centro – an upgraded convent behind Porta Susa train station. The huge rooms have mosaic floors and some have private terraces. A buffet breakfast is served in the swish coffee bar/shop downstairs (Corso Inghilterra 33; from £90).

Twin hotels NH Lingotto & NH Lingotto Tech are located in the former Fiat factory. Rooms have a loft-like feel with original floor-to-ceiling windows, along with cherry-wood panelling and designer furniture (Via Nizza 262; from £100).

Hotel Chelsea’s 15 rooms are not going to win any style prizes but this family-run hotel excels at making you feel at home with its top service. The romantic restaurant serves Pugliese cuisine (Via XX Settembre 79e; from £140).
