About Turin

Turin is a major industrial city as well as a business and cultural centre in northern Italy. It is surrounded on the western and northern front by the Alps and on the southern front by the hills of Monferrato. Four major rivers pass through the city: the Po and two of its tributaries, the Dora Riparia, the Stura di Lanzo, and the Sangone. Turin is also known as the capital of wine. It is known to produce both red and white wine. The attractions of Turin are listed below: Mole Antonelliana - The Mole Antonelliana is a tall nineteenth-century brick building topped by an aluminium spire. The picture of Mole is inscribed on Italy's 2 cent coins. The building is also home to the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, which is Italy (visit Italy itineraries)'s National Cinema Museum. It is surely a thrilling experience to go inside this museum as it has got several innovative arrangements. You can watch movies of different genres. And the sitting place could be a bed or a toilet seat! There is also a glass lift which takes you to the top most pinnacle of the building. Piazza Castello - This square has got grand palaces like Palazzo Reale and Palazzo Madama to its share. Palazzo Reale is the royal palace that served the Savoy dynasty, and Palazzo Madama has remained a castle, prison, barracks, and senate house in the earlier time. This palace is now a museum. Duomo and the Turin Shroud - The shroud of Turin has remained a topic of debates for centuries. This is a linen cloth bearing the image of a man who appears to have been physically traumatized in a manner consistent with crucifixion. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy (see itineraries). But unfortunately it is no more available to the public viewing as the shroud is currently kept safely locked up. But people are attracted by the very fact of not being able to view it. Egypt (plan Egypt itineraries)ian Museum - This museum has got the vast collection of Egypt (Egypt itineraries)ian artifacts. There are fascinating reconstructions of burial chambers, and plenty of mummies here. Superga - This is a basilica on the hill. It has become popular for the wrong reasons. This is because this is the site of the tragic aeroplane crash which killed the great Torino football team. Monte dei Cappuccini - This is a little hill that was once the site of a fort and later went on to become a monastery. You can view the snow-capped Alps from here.
