TURIN (TORINO)

<< previous | PAGE 1 | 2

Turin is also famous for its typical “café’s” and its high class restaurants, which can be found along the arcaded roads: to frequent them, signifies becoming part of a great City tradition.

Turin is known as a City of parks and water: crossing over the Po, whose banks face onto the magnificent Valentino Park, fixed up in 1830, and in whose interior we can find a true and proper anthology of architecture, in fact, there’s the Valentino Castle from 1630, the reconstruction of a medieval village and the modern Turin Exhibition Building.

A special mention has to be made regarding the outskirts of Turin, which is rich in artistic and architectural works; beginning with the Basilica di Superga, which, at 10 km from the centre, dominates the City from above on a hill: constructed by Iuvarra in 1731 after a vow to Vittorio Amedeo II.

Another architectural gem, still keeping outside the City, is the Villa Reale di Stupinigi, also by Iuvarra, projected in 1730, and being a luxurious, country-house for hunting by the reigning family.
A last stop, this time for those whose passion is conceptual, contemporary art: in the Rivoli Castle – at 13 km from the City – there’s a seat of an important museum with exposition areas, which during recent years, has become one of the European poles for all current expressions of art.
