About Turin

The first capital of Italy has an industrial heart softened by green hills, rising from the bank of the river Po and overlooking the city. If you hike up the hills on a clear day you'll be surprised to see that the city is surrounded by almost a 300° arc of Alpine peaks. Turin's urban geography was constructed following the rectangular grid of the Roman city, you can't get lost, it's like a chessboard. In the city center you'll find elegant squares, leafy parks, world-renowned museums and historic cafes alternated by funky new bars on the cobblestone streets. In case of the rain don't worry, you can still visit all those places walking under the 18 km long colonnaded walkways. Turin is a multi-faceted city, serious and vibrant, authentic and innovative. A big city with a soul of a small town.
