A newly refurnished and restored romantic rooftop apartment in the city center of Torino, a three minute walk from the main train station (train to EXPO15 takes 33 minutes), underground and Turin airport bus station.
“Tiptop Torino” is a newly refurnished and restored rooftop apartment located in the city center of Torino, a three minute walk from the main train station (Porta Nuova), from the Re Umberto under-ground station and from the Turin airport bus terminal. Built in 1873 as a convent, it now hosts typical "ringhiera" houses. In the communal yard or “cortile” of the building there is a beautiful, yet typical, black and white cobble stone paving with a fantastic Medlar tree in the middle. The building also has a two-floor cellar system, used in the past to preserve ice and wine.
There is a splendid view of the Alps and of the Hills surrounding Torino.
There is an open space sitting room with a kitchen area equipped with oven, fridge, freezer, dish-washer and washing machine, a queen size pull-out bed and TV. This open space has a door leading to a backyard-balcony. An “attic roof” bedroom comes equipped with a queen size bed, a wardrobe, a desk and door leading to a little romantic balcony with a view of the hills. Separately, you will find the bathroom with its own window, shower and bidet. There is also a little storage room.

I like reading, singing (I am part of a Gospel Choir) and traveling to know new places, costumes and habits. I like to do sports and eat good, fresh, typical food too. I am fascinated by architecture and design. I'm married to Federico (that thinks to be the perfect husband,) and we have two marvellous daughters, Beatrice and Margherita. We live in Torino, in the city center very close to the Tiptop apartment. We chose a flat here because we consider this area one of the best of the city. We restored TipTop as our dream-house and we want to share these emotions with our guests from all over the world, and make them feel at home.
