That’s right… today is all about……
Since today is my special day, I decided that I would take a walk in my new city, Torino.
I started off by taking the metro to Porta Susa and walking along Corso San Martino to Piazza Statuto. I realized pictures would be great right now.. so here you go.
One of the many advantages of living in a big city is that is fun to window shop. Since Valentine’s day is just a couple of weeks away, most of the pastry and bakery shops are decorated with Baci. (Italian for Kisses) These are by far, my favorite Italian candy. So, as I walk underneath the beautiful Baroque portichoes..
This is one of the best places to people watch (in my opinion) You have friends, families, couples, old and young walking arm and arm enjoying their day, enjoying their life. Once I reached the end of Via Garibaldi, I arrived at Piazza Castello. The city is currently cleaning the statue that is in the middle of the square so I didn’t take a picture of it today. For lunch, I enjoyed a very delicious slice of Focaccia Pizza with Pancetta.
Please say hello to my friends… Giorgio & Hermes
On Via Roma, not only will you find Giorgio & Hermes, but it’s also home to other stores such as:
and many more!
That’s right… I went to GROM…AGAIN!
For dinner, Mamma Adelasia made us a fantastic dinner! First Minestrone!
Carlo’s elementary school teacher also joined us for dinner. She gave us a crystal candy dish as a belated wedding gift.

YaYa, I love all your pics. I felt like I was with you the whole time. Thanks for the wonderful day. I really enjoyed myself being with you today. The dinner was so good, and the crostata delicious. I remeber Carlo's teacher. Thank Adelasia for the dinner and tell her I felt like I really was there. I especially enjoyed the stroll thru Via Garibaldi. I know it was your special day.
