Just an hour's drive from the French border, Turin City boasts a unique feel. Most famous for being the hometown of the former royal family, Turin still has a regal atmosphere with grand boulevards and sophisticated shops and museums. With the Italian Alps as your backdrop, a holiday to Turin City never fails to awe. Architect Le Corbusier even claimed that Turin was 'the city with the most beautiful natural location in the world.'
Many consider Turin to be the home and de facto capital of Baroque. Many of the main attractions are Baroque, including the Mole Antonelliana and The Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist - home to the famous Turin Shroud (the blanket which is claimed to have been wrapped around the body of Jesus after his crucifixion). Along with the stunning historical sites, Turin has an abundance of cafés, restaurants and cultural delights just waiting for you to discover them.
