Turin, which is the capital of the region of Piemonte, became the capital city of the new Kingdom of Italy under the hegemony of the House of Savoy in 1861. It later became the capital of the Italian car making industry with the development of the massive Fiat production plant.
The city is both severe and harmonious. It has long tree-lined boulevards that meet at right angles and a succession of porticoes and elegant baroque and 19th-century heritage buildings. It is a true metropolis that both preserves its past and looks to the future.
Walking through the centre offers the opportunity to admire the rare beauty of this city with a thousand faces. It is a place in which magic, rationality, history, culture and cuisine meet and intertwine in the streets and squares rendering it both mysterious and enchanting.
Turin hosts many interesting cultural events and this has helped it become a tourist destination that offers art, culture and entertainment. Its world famous monuments include the "Mole Antonelliana", the Egyptian Museum, the Royal Palace and the Palace of Venaria. Just one visit to Turin will be enough to convince anyone that it is indeed one of the great European capitals.
