ABOUT TORINO

Torino is packed with palaces and piazzas, great museums, fashionable boutiques, and glittering cafés and restaurants, enough to make this brand baroque jewel in the foothills of the Alps a top tourist destination. View a slideshow of a few landmarks.

Torino became the home of the powerful Savoy family in the 16th century. The House of Savoy spent lavishly on its showpiece, just when baroque was the height of fashion. Luxuriously ornamented buildings and churches abound.

Crowned by the majestic Alps, the town is remarkable for the harmony of its various architectural styles and the excellence of its museums! From Baroque to Art Nouveau and Modernism, Torino has an original "ensemble".

Torino has also an enviable food and wine tradition. A gastronomic environment, renowned for its delicacies, prestigious wines, the sweet glory of its chocolate and aperitifs, not only the famous Vermouth and Martini, but also the pleasant ritual that keeps fascinating its visitors. More....

A trip to Torino is synonymous with entertainment, music, shopping, emotions, mystery and curiosity which, together with a superb range of accommodations and restaurants and the current renaissance of art and urban architecture, make Torino one of the most exciting and modern European towns.
