Come to Turin, a fascinating city steeped in history, culture and traditions.
Taking a stroll through its streets will allow you to discover all its treasures: Piazza Castello, the heart of the city, featuring "Palazzo Reale" (the "Royal Palace"), Palazzo Madama and the "Duomo" ("Cathedral") with the Cupola of Guarini, the Holy Shroud's guardian.
Then there is Via Po, with plenty of shops and Piazza Vittorio, guarded at one end by the neoclassical "Chiesa della Gran Madre".

Turin is also rich in museums, and there really is something to cater for all tastes.
The Egyptian Museum is the second biggest collection in the world after Cairo, while the National Cinema Museum provides 167 metres of fun in the towering and evocative Mole Antonelliana, symbol of the city.

There are also several prestigious contemporary art galleries including the Gallery of Modern Art (GAM), Palazzo Bricherasio and the Giovanni & Marella Agnelli Picture Gallery, featuring an extraordinary patrimony inherited from the Royal House of Savoy.

Also not to be missed is the Stupinigi Hunting Lodge in Nichelino, a bold piece of architecture erected in 1729 according to a design by Filippo Juvarra, originally used as a base for the Savoy's hunting expeditions.

Do not leave Turin before visiting "La Reggia di Venaria Reale" masterpiece of architecture and landscape, world heritage site since 1997.
