Attic apartment located on the fourth floor (no elevator) of an ancient building in the historic center of Turin. The accommodation consists of a double bedroom with 2 beds, bathroom with shower and dining room with a comfortable kitchen area. In the dining room there is a sofa bed for 2 people. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped.
The apartment is located in the charming square of the Consolata, a destination for tourists and devotees. Here you can visit the Sanctuary of the Consolata, also known as the Church of Santa Maria della Consolazione, dating back to the early Christian period, but revisited in 1700 in a radical way by Filippo Juvarra, with the baroque taste of the time. Of great interest are also the Bell Tower of the Church, built in the eleventh century and remained the only testimony of the previous Romanesque church and the neoclassical facade of the Sanctuary dating back to 1860. The Sanctuary of the Consolata preserves the famous and evocative gallery of votive offerings – small paintings, donated to the Sanctuary to thank Our Lady after a grace received.
In Piazza della Consolata tourists can enjoy one of the symbols of Turin, born right here in the iconic café “Il Bicerin”, a piece of ancient Turin. The invention and creation of bicerin was born in this place. This tasty hot drink is one of the symbols of Turin taste. The ritual of bicerin since the nineteenth century was declined in three variants: pur and fiur (similar to today’s cappuccino), pur and barba (coffee and chocolate), ~ n poc’d tut (or “a bit of everything”), with all three ingredients. This last formula was the most successful and is the one served today taking its name from the small glasses without handle in which it was served (bicerin that in fact means little glass).
