Eurovision Turin 2022 | Eating, Drinking & Transport in Torino Ultimate Guide

Ciao, Torino! It’s been over 30 years since Eurovision last took up residence in Italy and for the first time ever the Eurovision Song Contest will be held in the beautiful Northern Italian city of Torino, or Turin for us English-speakers.

Following Måneskin’s win in Rotterdam last year, the Eurovision Song Contest – the word’s biggest live entertainment television show – will take place in Turin in May 2022. This will mark Italy’s third time hosting the contest. The first was way back in 1965 in Naples (brought to the contest from Copenhagen by 16 year-old Gigliola Cinquetti, and won in Naples by French singer France Gall for Luxembourg) and the second was in the Italian capital, Rome in 1991. Toto Cutogno brought the contest back to Italy from Yugoslavia with Insieme and in Rome – where Italy’s pair of previous winners Toto and Gigliola jointly hosted – Carola nabbed Sweden’s third victory after a tie at the top.

After the cancellation of Eurovision 2020, and the heavy restrictions put in place at Rotterdam 2021, Turin 2022 will be the first time since Tel-Aviv (2019) that many Eurovision fans will resume their pilgrimages to the hosting city. We’ve already spent a week in the city in February so we’re here to help you along the way with our tips, advice and recommendations on what to do, what to see, where to eat and drink and how to get around and spend your time in the city of Turin.
