Turin: scent of coffee and taste of Giandujotto
It is no surprise that New York Times has chosen Turin as one of the “must-see” travel destinations.
We have always believed Turin had an unveiled charm. As former capital of Italy, Turin is the city where the World’s largest Egyptian Museum outside of Cairo is located and where you can find an extraordinary combination of Roman, Renaissance and the early 20th century architecture. It had always attracted art historians, architects and travellers from all around the world, today more than ever.
After the Olympic Games in 2006 the city of Turin has become much more than just an industrial city like it was once known.
Nowadays, Turin is very well known as the city where the worldwide famous EATALY has been conceived. Especially, the food-lovers should not miss the Salone del Gusto (next in 2018) that every year gains attention from all over the world.
In Turin you can also visit the Cinema Museum located in the Mole Antoneliana. The monumental building, firstly planned to be a synagogue, was completed in 1889, and currently it is famous for being the tallest museum in the world.
Turin Duomo, where the Holy Shroud is treasured, has very interesting history, sometimes veiled by mysterious facts.
Districts as San Salvario, Murazzi, Dora Docks, and Quadrilattero have been restored and became a “must” for those who would like to experience the authentic Turin vibe.
Every corner of the city is hiding a story, a secret from the past or a new spot to be discovered.
One of the landmarks for the football lovers is the new Juventus Stadium, inaugurated in 2011 and it is the first stadium in Italy owned by a football club. Here you can find the Juventus Museums where you can discover the long history of this football club.
You should climb on Superga Hill where you will have a breathtaking view of this beautiful city and of the Alps in the background.
