Turin is characterised by awe-inspiring architecture, cultural heritage and world-class gastronomy. It's little wonder that Turin commands such respect on the world stage, with international events such as the International Book Fair and Salone del Gusto (a food fair) choosing this city as their official venue.
Bus services are available across the whole metropolitan area – most of the main attractions of this city are, however, within easy walking distance of each other, so the best way to experience the finest offerings of Turin is to dust off those walking shoes and venture off through the endless streets and squares of the city.
Every itinerary should include a visit to Mole Antonelliana, a majestic building within the heart of the city that offers first-rate views of its surroundings, as well as the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, a cultural institution that preserves iconic memorabilia from Italy's extensive history in the world of film and cinema. These attractions are within a 20-minute walk of Torino Porta Nuova station.
Not far from Mole Antonelliana is Piazza Castello, the centre of Turin's social life – here you can find important buildings like Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace), the residence of the Royal House of Savoy, Teatro Regio (Royal Theatre) and Palazzo Madama.
Turin is also renowned for its many religious sites, with an incredible array of monuments dedicated to the Catholic Church. In particular, it’s famous for the Cappella della Sacra Sindone and the Cattedrale di San Giovanni Battista – both within a 15-minute walk from the Cinema Museum. Once you've got your fill of these marvellous monuments, head to the Egyptian Museum (Museo Egizio) for inspiring artefacts and exhibitions.
