The foodie traveller … enjoys a sweet taste of Turin

Climb aboard a converted city tram for a tour of Turin’s confectionery tradition, with cakes and chocolates to match

Turin is famous for patisserie and chocolate art, which the royal house of Savoy exported all over Europe in the 1800s. Pastry chefs rule here, and visitors can sharpen their sweet tooth by hopping aboard Ristocolor or Gustotram, two brightly coloured city trams, for a 50-minute pastry tasting tour of the city’s sights (€20pp).
