Not just golf...
The surroundings of Royal Park I Roveri are full of itineraries and places to discover: from the Reggia di Venaria to the baroque architecture of the city of Turin, the scene of world-class sporting events.
City of Turin
Of Roman origin, Turin was the first capital of Italy and became world famous in 2006 as the site of the Winter Olympics.
Its urban space is bounded by the ring formed by the Royal Residences of the Savoy family, a World Heritage Site. Inside, the city is able to offer its visitors an extraordinary mix of cultural, gastronomic and shopping experiences. From the Egyptian Museum to the Automobile Museum, from the Cinema Museum to its 18 kilometres of arcades, from the atmospheric squares to the baroque palaces in the centre, Turin is a surprise to be discovered metre by metre, block by block.
A few steps away from Royal Park I Roveri stands the Allianz Stadium, Juventus home, and the Juventus Museum, which traces the history and successes of the club.
In April 2019, Turin was chosen to host the Nitto ATP Finals, the final event of the men’s tennis season, from 2021 to 2025. The five-year agreement will see the world’s top eight compete for the title.
Turin is the 15th venue to host the prestigious end-of-season event, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020.
Also on the doorstep of Turin is the largest ski area in north-western Italy: Via Lattea, with 400 km of slopes. Venue for the Winter Olympics in 2006, the area regularly hosts World Cup races.
The Piedmontese enogastronomic tradition
In Piedmont, the wine and food tradition has solid roots, handed down from the ancient noble courts and made extraordinary by a heterogeneous territory and climate. The whole world gathers in Piedmont to taste the noble white truffle, the prized Fassone meat, the round and gentle hazelnuts of the Langhe, the variety of cheeses and the great first courses such as agnolotti and tajarin.
When it comes to wine, Piedmont is a world leader thanks to Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and dozens of DOC and DOCG wines. It is no coincidence that the wine-growing landscapes of the Langhe, Monferrato and Roero are a World Heritage Site.
To end on a sweet note, it is impossible not to mention CioccolaTò, a renowned fair hosted by the City of Turin where the chocolate tasting experience is overwhelming.
