Borgo Dora Vacations
Turin, Roman Quarter and Via Roma, are other places in the area which are also worth touring.
Do make the effort to see some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make this region such a rewarding holiday destination. Spend part of the day admiring the exhibits at Galleria Sabauda, Egyptian Museum and the National Cinema Museum. For a great night out, spend an evening at the Turin Royal Theatre, one of the region’s great live concert venues. Aspiring artists should admire the local artwork and other exhibits at the Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea.
If the sun is shining, follow the locals and head outside to the nearby green spaces. Have a break in one of the local parks and gardens, which include the Orto Botanico dell'Università di Torino.
To really get a feel for the area, visit some of the local sights such as Santa Cristina, Mole Antonelliana and the Piazza San Carlo. These are popular with travellers from all the corners of the globe. History buffs will enjoy the Turin Royal Palace and Valentino Castle. Whatever your faith, you'll love the serenity at Borgo Dora’s holy places like Turin Cathedral and the Gran Madre Church.
To browse through stores or enjoy a light meal, visit Lagrange 15 and the Galleria San Federico.
While you are in Borgo Dora, be sure to see the Juventus F.C. soccer team in summer at Juventus Stadium, the region’s premier sporting venue. True sports obsessives also have the opportunity to tour the locker rooms and peek into the inner workings of Juventus Stadium by joining a back stage tour.
At the end of a day enjoying the charms of Borgo Dora, stay the night at one of the area’s bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. Check out the rooms and rates at the Hotel Diplomatic, the Principi di Piemonte, or the Concord Hotel.
