  • rivers of people and a sea of beautiful things of the past that make us pleasantly go back in time and brings back memories ... unmissable really. Every second Sunday of the month

  • I spent a week in Turin, a city that in recent years it's very renewing. The second Sunday of the month in borgo Dora is the Gran Balon, a flea market, which unlike the balon which takes place every Saturday, has preserved the charm of the little market, and is not contaminated with other stalls. It is well attended and is very charming vintage and antique items to browse, you can also eat on the premises that overlook the sinuous streets reminiscent of water movement, element present in past centuries in this neighborhood in which there were small frabriche that used water as an energy source. It is interesting the whole context. If you happen to be in Turin worth stepping.

  • The place is absolutely characteristic of the history and culture of Turin, is just about everything. Just be careful of pickpockets, then hand over the wallet. But it is worth visiting, for those looking for antiques or unusual objects.
