Turin delights visitorswith a magical mix of history, royalty and architecture. Expect palaces,piazzas and museums that rival the best in the world.

Nestled in the northern part of Italy under the towering shadows of the European Alps, Turin is often overlooked by the major crowds that move through Rome and Milan. The former home of the Italian royal family,the Savoys, Turin has been left with a legacy of opulence and grandeur thatmakes it the perfect place for a fairytale getaway.

A great way to start any journey to Turin is with the Mole Antonelliana, one of Turin’smost recognised buildings. Climb to the top for a panoramic view of the cityand the Alps to the northwest. The National Cinema Museum is also locatedinside and is worth a visit. 

The influence of the Savoys can be seen throughout the city.The Turin Royal Palace holdsthe best examples of their lifestyle the gallery of arms is one of the best ofits type in Europe. On the other side of the palace you’ll find the Turin Cathedral, home of the Shroudof Turin. Many believe this ancient artifact is the final burial cloth of JesusChrist. If you’re interested in a pleasant walk, head to the Royal Gardens behind the palace and enjoy getting out into the sun. Valentino Parkto the south is another option, with the spectacular Valentino Castle within its boundaries.

Grand piazzas scattered throughout the centre of Turin are agreat place to have a meal or a morning cup of espresso. Piazza San Carlo has two of the mostfamous cafés in Turin: Café San Carlo and Café Torino.
