City Sightseeing Torino

The city and recreational activities

Turin, with its 14 km of Porticos, is one of the most fascinating and mysterious cities in Italy. Its magic consists of its fusion of arts, history and vanguard.

Under its layer of Savoyard rigour, there is a pulsating vivacity and vitality which not only amaze, but literally enchant the visitor: baroque buildings and futuristic architecture, antique art collections and international film exhibitions, the Egyptian Museum, which is the second most important in the world for its archaeological exhibits, and sports teams of global renown.

The tradition of Italy's first capital lives on in the old cafés and restaurants in the city centre. A complex of industries and world class higher education institutions make Turin one of the most important technological and scientific centres in Italy. The winter Olympics of 2006 also brought Turin into the global spotlight.
