Holidays with children in Turin: where to eat and where to go?
If you went to Turin with children, then, of course, they will also be very interesting and fun there. For starters, about where to go with the kids for lunch and dinner. After all, eating out with kids can be a problem for some families. First of all, when traveling with children, you need restaurants with quick service, it should be noisy enough not to have to yank your child, and the child should not disturb the rest of the restaurant guests, and, of course, in such a cafe must have a suitable menu. Here is list of restaurants where you can safely go with children. All of these restaurants have changing tables and high chairs and all but one have an entertainment corner with albums and colored pencils, mini-mountain or a house, in short, a place where you can leave your child for a while and have a quiet lunch.

This museum details the history of Egypt from the Paleolithic to the Coptic period and has one of the most extensive and impressive collections of Egyptian artifacts outside of Egypt itself. That is, you can look at 30,000 exhibits, if you don’t get tired, of course. All in all, an amazing museum! It’s hard to imagine that some items go back to 3500 BC!
Other interesting museums include the Environmental Museum (A Come Ambiente) at Corso Umbria, 90. This is the first museum in Europe that deals exclusively with environmental issues. It’s a fun, interactive museum aimed at children and their parents. The museum is divided into three parts: the energy and transport hall; the water hall; and the hall with the rest of the exhibits. Guides are waiting for their little visitors to play environmental games with them and explain what’s going on in the museum. By the way, the museum is located in the park area, Parco Dora, where it is great to walk along the river after visiting the museum, play and breathe the fresh air.
