Torino Olympic Park
Olympic Pedigree: 2006 Games’ home to hockey, ice skating, biathlon, luge, bobsled, skeleton, alpine skiing, snowboarding, curling, and ski jumping.
Be an Olympian: Strap on the skates and put on the tights for figure skating lessons at Palaghiaccio Torre Pellice, the park’s ice skating rink ($157 for 10 lessons). Then stroll the Olympic Village’s arcade, grab dinner (preferably someplace that features the region’s best-known products—white truffles and Barolo wine), and stay at the Hotel Pragelato, overlooking the ski jumping stadium.
