About this journey

Lifting the shroud in Piedmont

Lifting the shroud in Piedmont Turin is the automotive capital of Italy. And although we may poo-poo the Fiat, the Turinese take pride in their sporty little wheels (The "T" in Fiat stands for Turin.) This industrial city has created more than little engines that could, and is famous for much more than a sacred cloth. Turin is also the birthplace of gianduja –mouthwatering hazelnut chocolate, of lecca lecca – the lollipop, and of Vermouth (hence, also the Martini – although this is up for debate). So why don't more people visit ? Famous architect Le Corbusier defined Turin as "the city with the most beautiful natural location in the world." Set in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy and surrounded by the magnificent Alps, this was the perfect setting for the 2006 Winter Olympics. The event helped bring Turin to the tourist forefront of Italy. But with a Eurail Italy Pass or even a Eurail France-Italy Pass (the French border is but an hour away) you can stop for a day or two and soak up the sophisticated, aristocratic atmosphere. And with Trenitalia and Italo train service, it’s never been easier. Both trains get you there in style and comfort. For many, there is one word that defines Turin – and that's "shroud." People wonder, "Medieval Forgery ? True image of Jesus of Nazareth ?" The intense debate continues. Damage caused by a fire in 1532 was painstakingly restored to this mysterious cloth in 2002. But this controversial "restoration" considerably altered the cloth's appearance. Adding to the authenticity argument, it has been announced that no further scientific examination would be permitted. Every few decades, the "original" shroud is on display. And while it's been put away now until 2025, you can still see a replica at the Museo della Sindone. The on-site museum features the history of the shroud and many photographs, some of which are life-sized and larger than life. Learn more about Turin

Dreams of pesto and possibility

Dreams of pesto and possibility Genoa, the capital of the Liguria region, is where you'll find the real Italy. Where nonna talks with her hands and laundry is still hung out to dry on Juliet-style balconies. Playing second or even third fiddle to the boot's bigger gems of Venice, Florence and Rome, Genoa's charms lie in the elegantly dilapidated narrow lanes where the everyday mundane takes place. Genoa is home to two main train stations with connections to cities near and far. Milan can be reached in just about 90 minutes ; Turinin less than two hours. Rome is approximately five hours away. The city is incredibly accessible, and yet, many don't stop and see what's being missed. Travel with ease using a Eurail Italy Pass. The Genovese are a proud people – and for good reason. The city's glory days long behind, they can still cling to once being the most important maritime center during the Roman Empire. Within the old medieval walls, much hasn't changed since Genovese ships launched raids on the Venetians. Today, the port is lined with shops, cafes and boulevards along the water where you can daydream of exploration. Probably like Christopher Columbus did when he was growing up here in Genoa. The town is permeated with the explorer's memory. You can even visit his supposed childhood home, a small ivy-clad house, just outside the Porta Soprana. Genoa isn't without its architectural gems. There are plenty of palazzos on parade in between the alleyways. On Via Garibaldi, Genoa's most beautiful street, the 16th century Palazzo Bianco houses an outstanding collection of Genoese art. At the Palazzo Rosso, Carravaggio's Ecce Homo (Man of Sorrows) can be viewed. The Palazzo Ducale, where the Dukes of Genoa used to live, also contains important masterpieces. The Palazzo Reale was used by the kings of Savoy and has an ornate 17th century interior. With its prominent seaside location, it makes sense that you'd find Europe's biggest aquarium. Over a million landlubbers visit this water wonderland each year. Next door is the Porto Antico, an entertainment area with museums, movie theaters, cafés and also a beautiful promenade along the sea. It's a beautiful spot to stop for a bite and taste Liguria's most mouth-watering import – pesto. Crafted of olive oil, garlic, pine nuts and basil, top off a pile of penne with this delicious sauce. Another must try is a basket of focaccia bread, which also originated here. Topped with olive oil, salt and a little bit of white wine, this is a simple, delectable treat. Just like the rest of Genoa. Paolo Coelho wrote, "Among the marvels of Italy, it will take some digging to find the beauties of Genoa, but it is worth visiting." This is the simple wonder of traveling ; walking through a maze of streets, discovering its true taste. Genoa can be a little salty around the edges, but with time, you'll find the sweetness within.
