Turin, Italy - Travel Guide

Turin is a prosperous industrial city in shadow of the Alps and is perhaps more known for FIAT automobiles than tourist attractions. Turin tends to get passed by when travellers visit Italy, preferring the delights of Rome, Florence or Venice. However, this does a great disservice to Turin which we found to be packed with stunning nineteenth century architecture, glorious piazzas and opulent churches. Many of the city’s attractions are centred around the magnificent royal palace, so it is quite easy to get a great taste of Turin within a couple of days of being there. Winter was approaching when we visited, leaving the city cool and foggy in the evenings, but that only added to the atmosphere!
