Top 11 guided tours, attractions, tickets and activities to don in Turin - Piedmont, Italy

Turin (Piedmont), the best 11 activities to do to discover the first capital of the Kingdom of Italy

The capital city of Piedmont is one of the major tourist, cultural and business centres in Italy and it is nationally known as the capital of cinema as well as Italian automotive industry. As a city with two-thousand-year history, Turin firstly was an important Roman colony and then it became the capital of a series of kingdoms that have succeeded one another across the centuries. It was also the first Italian capital from 1861 to 1865.

Part of its historical centre was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997 thanks to the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy. Besides that, what strikes the eye is Turin’s skyline. In fact, the city is surrounded by imposing Alpine peaks. In clear days you can spot Monviso, Matterhorn and the massifs of Gran Paradiso, Monte Bianco and Monte Rosa.
