Me on via Torino

To the right of the plaza before the Duomo is Via Torino. A street where the stores are unique to Italy and Europe, but are actually affordable. It’s important to me that the purchases I make here in Italy, and purchases I can only make in Italy. I wanted products that were exclusively European but I still want to be able to eat. I was able to accomplish that on Via Torino. Some of my favorite stores on the street where I did some damage were Berska, Pull & Bear, and Pimkie. Every piece I got was under 30 euros and exclusive in Europe. I got a lot of great dresses that have become some of my favorites. I’m already thinking of a game plan to keep my mom and sister out of my new European wardrobe. If you are looking to get compliments back in the US but also want to have enough money for food and water, definitely go to Via Torino.
