Similarities have been made between Paris in Turin’s elegant tree-lined boulevards and there are echoes of Vienna in its stately art nouveau cafes, but make no mistake – this city is anything but a copycat. Turin, or Torino as it is known in Italy, is an interesting and often overlooked city in the Piedmont (Piemonte) region of Italy. Famous for the Shroud of Turin and Fiat auto plants, the city has a lot more to offer. From its Baroque cafes and architecture to its arcaded shopping promenades and museums, Turin is a great city for wandering and exploring. It also makes a good base for exploring nearby mountains and valleys. Turin also briefly served as Italy’s first capital and donated its monarchy – the venerable House of Savoy – to the newly unified Italian nation in 1861. More recently, the 2006 Winter Olympics sparked an urban revival in the city, which has spread to its culture and, most deliciously, its cuisine.
