Turin is one of the most important centers for culture in northern Italy. The capital of the Piedmont region is located on the Po river, in front of the Susa Valley and surrounded by the western Alps. On a typical summer day, visitors can spot the snow-covered mountains in the distance from anywhere in town.

The city is well known for its renaissance, baroque, rococo, neoclassical, and art nouveau architectures. Thanks to various art galleries, restaurants, old style cafés, churches, palaces, opera houses, squares, parks, gardens, theatres, libraries and museums in the city visitors can breath a magical atmosphere.

Either having a glass of wine in the breathtaking Piazza Vittorio or appreciating the view of the whole town from Superga hill; either discovering Ancient Egypt in the Museo Egizio (second most important after Cairo’s) or getting on the lift at the symbol of the city, the Mole Antonelliana, Turin surprises us all with its particularities every single day.
