Study Tour to Turin

Tuesday 17 to Sunday 22 May

The trip aims to embrace many of the Savoy family properties both in and surrounding the city; Venaria Reale, Villa Madama, Villa Reale, Racconigi, Stupinigi, and Moncalieri, also the parks of Castello d’ Aglie and of La Burcina at Biella some distance north of Turin, as well as two Russell Page designed gardens in private hands and two contemporary private gardens designed by Paolo Pejrone; he and a representative from the soprintendenza dei beni culturali will discuss with us the issues of conservation in Piedmont during our tour of Racconigi.

We will stay in the city centre in a comfortable 3* hotel. The cost will be £760 per person sharing a room with a single room supplement of £150 (£200 for twin room for single use). This includes transport in and around Turin, entry to sites, most lunches and a group dinner. It does not include the journey to and from Turin. The itinerary will be fixed to the BA timetable of flights between Gatwick and Turin but Easyjet also serves Turin, many companies serve Milan which is an easy train journey away, and the Artesia train runs twice a day between Paris and Turin.

Robert Peel has already received a lot of interest so may run a repeat in 2012 if more interest continues to flow in.

Please contact Robert Peel or 020 7121 8938 (after 14 March) for further information.
