Fringed by the Alps in the scenic Piedmont region of northern Italy, Turin is a city that has always liked to shake things up. This was the center of the Italian Resurgence, the movement that brought all the Italian states into a single unified kingdom in the 19th century. Visitors might start the exploration at Piazza Castello, the heart of the city and the site of some of the city’s most important attractions like Palazzo Madama, the Royal Palace, Royal Theatre, and Royal Library. Take a stroll through Valentino Park to see the Castello del Valentino and walk the streets of the medieval village found there.
For a truly unique experience that can’t be found anywhere else, go to the Cathedral of Turin’s Chapel of the Holy Shroud. Visitors from all over the world flock here to see the Shroud of Turin, believed to be the burial shroud of Jesus Christ. If you find yourself running out of time to see this amazing city, simply hop on the number 7 tram for a full circuit of Turin’s center at a really great price.
