Visiting Torino/Turin

The simple and practical guide for visiting Turin

One word can identify Torino: elegant.
Torino is an amazing city, full of wonderful historic palaces and wide places, fine streets and gardens.
Torino is often excluded from the tourists tours, and it's a pity, because this city, which has been capital of Italy until 1864, offers a striking atmosphere, with baroque, neo classical and art nouveau imprint.

Visiting the most important places of Turin

Tourists can easily visit Torino on foot. Walking is the best way to visit the city: there are more than 18 km of porches and you can comfortably walk around, admiring the palaces and the shop windows.
