Turin

Turin

It seems laughable that the immaculate baroque city of Turin is sometimes known as “Italy’s Detroit”. Both the Kingdom of Savoy’s former capital and the centre of Italy’s car manufacturing, Turin lies at the heart of Italy’s industrial belt, but its centre is a pristine chessboard of baroque squares, colonnades and UNESCO-listed palaces.

Italy’s fourth largest city looks and feels old, from the intact Roman gate in its city wall right up to its many 19th century coffee houses (such as the Caffe San Carlo) whose décor hasn’t changed for over a century. While it can’t rival Florence for art galleries, the city houses 14 former royal residences, and you can’t miss the towering outline of the Mole Antonelliana, first built as a synagogue in the 19th century and now a cinema museum. Beyond its historic cafes, Turin is also a centre for Piedmontese food – rich with eggs, cream and white truffle – while a former Fiat factory in its suburbs houses Eataly, the world’s first slow food supermarket.

Exciting experiences in Turin

Magic Turin Evening Tour
IT-TRN-EXPERI-MAGIC.

Turin has two souls: one linked to white magic, the other to evil-black magic. You will explore them both, starting from Piazza Statuto, the "hearth of darkness" of the city, a part of the city that Romans, who founded Turin, considered an unlucky area and used as a burial site. At sunset you will drive past scary stone monsters, sinister architecture, unusual statues adorning ancient buildings and a small strange detail of the Duomo, which houses the famous Holy Shroud.
