City Overview

Turin is the first capital of modern Italy. With its fine, aristocratic atmosphere, it is an increasingly popular tourist destination. Surrounded by the Italian Alps, the city was defined by the famous architect Le Corbusier as "the city with the most beautiful natural location in the world."

Known also as the European capital of Baroque, Turin cannot be seen as a typical Italian city. It is much more sophisticated and aristocratic. In addition, many French-style characteristics can be found, from old world cafés and grand boulevards and palaces to world-class art museums, leafy parks and the Po River meandering softly into the city centre from the surrounding hills.
