Pastificio Defilippis

It is impossible to leave Italy without taking with you one of the symbol of this country: handmade pasta. In Turin, to be sure to get the best artisanal homemade products, visit Pastificio Defillips. Open since 1872, here you can find not only all kinds of pasta, but also prepared dishes and top-quality local specialties.


Much like dining and nightlife, your shopping experience can also vary depending on the neighbourhood. In the Quadrilatero Romano area, you will find various ethnic, second-hand and artists' shops. If you are looking for something more sophisticated, you can walk under the arcades of Via Roma and along Via Lagrange, where all the major designer brands have their boutiques. On Via Garibaldi and Via Po, the two main roads to Piazza Vittorio, there are plenty of little stores selling clothes, accessories and local products. Last but not least, if you want to experience a genuine Italian market, you cannot miss Porta Palazzo Market: the biggest in Europe, merging into one farmers, fish and second-hand markets. This last is particularly famous: it is called Balon, and walking among its stalls bargaining with sellers is certainly a unique experience.
