The residence is a 10 or 15 minute walk to the centre of Turin. Big rooms, air conditioning in both the lounge and bedroom, neat little kitchen and flat screen tv - oh and spacious clean bathroom/shower. Quadruple glazing mean's you hardly hear the trains and trams travelling below your windows. I like watching trains, so enjoyed watching them coming and going. A few vagrants sleeping along the road from the residence, but not aggressive, more sad really. There is a fabulous coffee shop 150 meters away next door to a small Carrefore. We loved this apartment and Turin is a gem of a city, we will be returning and staying at the Sacchi.
