Turin (Torino in Italian) is a beautiful city filled with cafes, arched porticoes, bookstores and plenty of museums. With a hint of French flavor, and a pinch of regal charm, this northern capital of Italy’s Piedmont region is refreshingly free of the masses of tourists that populate much of Italy. It’s the perfect place to relax, take it slow, and savor the sights of Italy’s car capital.
Inside trendy Hotel Monaco in downtown Denver, award-winning Panzano serves up Northern Italian fusion fare with inventive zest while maintaining a commitment to sustainability. Decorated in hues of plum, mocha and chocolate, pen and ink drawings of Italian landmarks line the walls while the windows overlook busy city streets. Best of all the food here is as artful as the decor.
