The Turin of shopping has two faces: the luxury and the curiosity.
"Luxury" means visiting the high fashion boutiques and the sumptuous jewellery stores underneath the arcades of Via Roma, in the Gallery Subalpina and in the one of San Federico; discovering the antique shops and workshops of restoration in Via Maria Vittoria, via della Rocca and Via Principe Amedeo; walking around the perfumeries and clothing stores in Via Garibaldi, the longest pedestrian island in Europe; and don't forget the great gastronomies and wine-tasting shops which offer the best of the regional production (where a truffle can cost more than a ring).
"Curiosity" means throwing yourself in the alleys of the historical center which is full of craftsmen, brocanteurs, artists, wondering in the secondary streets that often offer unexpected delicious shops, attending the corner markets that top up the streets and squares of the city with colors and sounds, for example the Mercato delle Erbe (Herbal market- see MARKETS), and above all, throw yourself in the heart of the low budget and intriguing purchase: the Balon and il Gran Balon at the Porta Palazzo, the great flea market loved by the Torineses (see MARKETS).
In sum, also for the shopping, as for the nightlife, Turin offers a wide range of choice: for all tastes and all budgets.
