B&B Piedmont Province of Turin Turin Vibrisse


Bed & Breakfast
via S. Domenico, 4 - Torino (TO) - Area: quadrilatero
Vibrisse (the Cat's Whiskers) is a quiet room in a 17th century house in the very heart of Turin, a tasty breakfast with homemade cakes, and a whisker-y welcome from our cats. Perfect also if you are visiting the Expo 2015 in Milan, less than a hour's trip away by public transport.

We’re happy to welcome you in our own home in the very heart of Turin, close to the Cathedral, Piazza Castello and Porta Palazzo, Europe’s largest, busiest and most colourful market. Vibrisse is nestled in the Quadrilatero Romano, one of Turin’s hot spots for nightlife, and offers you a quiet and cozy retreat where you can rest after a long day about town – maybe by cuddling our kitties, the actual landlords here;)
Your room
Your room is equipped with a double and a single bed, located on a cozy mezzanine. We can also provide a camp bed or a cot for a child.

Your private bathroom is right out of the door. We supply towels, bathrobes and slippers for all the guests.

Vibrisse looks out to a monastery's courtyard, so it is very peaceful and quiet any time of day.

About the breakfast:
We look forward to welcome you in our kitchen for our signature breakfast, and help you get a good start on your Turinese day. Homemade cakes, pastries and cookies, freshly-pressed juices, fruit and yogurts, jam, bread, butter and cereals, and of course a nice espresso shot, a latte or a cup of tea..and if you fancy something else, we’ll make sure you get it.

We can not cater for celiac disease sufferers but, should you need it, we will provide a choice of packaged GF food.

More info:
Our building dates back to the 17th century and sadly is not equipped with a lift or elevator. But there are only 3 floors to climb - and we even counted the steps: 72:)
The whole property is no-smoking, but you are welcome to enjoy your electronic cigarettes.

Due to the presence of our cats, we regret we can't accept other pets.

Such a nice place! I appreciated the warm welcome and the daily chats with Marcella and I loved the curious cats. It felt like coming home in a unknown city. It's so nice to know that there are places like vibrisse in this world. Thank you, Marcella.

An excellent address: quiet, perfectly located and with a warm welcome. It feels like home, or even better, after having tasted the home-made breakfast cooked by Marcella. Marcella is adorable, discrete, very attentive and always ready to advise us. Last but not least, we spent the whole stay with the mascot of the place, bobo the cat! In short, after leaving, you're looking forwards to come back again.

Très bon accueil dans une chambre d'hôte très bien située à deux pas du centre ville. Chambre très propre et bine entretenue. La présence des chats "Bobo et Emma" n'est pas du tout une gêne, au contraire très distrayant. Encore mille merci pour la surprise du gâteau de mon anniversaire le matin.

Es war einfach alles perfekt. Marcella hat uns zusätzlich mit guten Tipps für Ausflüge, Sehenswürdigkeiten und Restaurants versorgt. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl bei ihr.

Grazie mille Carlo! A presto.

Hey, I'm Marcella

When I'm travelling I love to experience new places as the locals do. With this in mind we opened Vibrisse (The Cat's Whiskers), our one-room, three-cats bed&breakfast in the heart of our hometown Torino. I love to welcome new people and make them feel at home. I enjoy baking for them, showing them around my city and sharing all my favourite places. In my spare time I am a freelance copywriter, and I make one inch scale miniatures for dollshouses.

Area Quadrilatero

We are located right in the city centre, in the heart of historical quarter Quadrilatero Romano, just some 400 metres away from the Cathedral, the Royal Palace and Castello Square.
The Egyptian Museum, the Mole Antonelliana, San Carlo Square and Carignano palace are all at a 5-minute walk.
Just around the corner you'll experience the colourful magic of Porta Palazzo, Europe's largest food market.

The area is very well-served by public transport and offers an incredible selection of restaurants, bars and shops.
You can reach both Porta Nuova and Porta Susa railway stations with a 10-minute autobus ride (the nearest stop is 100 metres from here). From there you can take a high-speed train to reach Milan in just 35 minutes.
Caselle airport can be reached by taxi or with an easy and cheap combination of autobus+train (the 11 line stops just outside Vibrisse and brings you to the Dora railway station, from which you can get to the airport in 20 minutes).
