It is a city offering a lot to those looking for places off the beaten path, but rich in history, art and culture. Turin was founded by the Romans and brought to splendour by the Savoy family during Baroque. In 1861 it became Italy’s first Capital and from the 19th century on it was the driving force of Italy’s industry. Today, Turin is the home of many important museums, such as the National Museum of Cinema, the National Museum of Automobiles, the Egyptian museum and the Savoy family’s Royal Residences, today part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

Where we are
