The capital of Piedmont, with a population of about a million people, is known as the hometown of the royal family once ruled here. Today Turin has retained its aristocratic atmosphere with huge boulevards and palaces, green parks and art galleries. Moreover, thanks to the 2006 Olympics, this beautiful Italian city was discovered by millions of tourists, whose number is increasing annually.

Turin International Airport, TRN

Turin Airport is located in the Piedmont region in northwest Italy and is flooded with tourists during summer and winter vacations. In 1989, the airport was thoroughly renovated for the World Cup, and in 2005 for the Winter Olympic Games. So he simply doesn’t get old.

 

And Turin's airport is far from ideal. Everything says here: "There is nothing to sit at the airport, go to the city". The staff, most likely, will absolutely not care what you do and what your questions are. Most tourists note rather poor management and a typical Italian desire to chat about their work instead. In addition, there is very little entertainment at the Turin airport, and it can sometimes be difficult to connect to free Wi-Fi.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

It takes about 16 km from the airport to the center of Turin. You can easily cover this distance in half an hour by car. And finding a taxi will not be a problem, because they always wait for tourists at the exit of the terminal. The trip will be very expensive, which is about 45 dollars.

You can also take a train at the airport to get to the Torino Dora GTT train station, and from there, by any available transport, to the city center. But the most convenient way is the SADEM bus. It will take you to Torino Porta Susa or Torino Porta Nuova stations. Both are already in the city center. Travel time will take no more than 45 minutes. The bus leaves in each direction every 15 minutes, and on weekends and holidays every half hour. A bus ticket costs a little more than $ 7 if you buy it in a special machine or at the information desk. If you buy a ticket directly from the driver, you have to pay a dollar more.

Turin Sightseeings

Turin is considered the European capital of Baroque, because almost everything was built in the peak of fashion of this style. However, it does not look like other typical Italian cities. Many people notice French charm here and even often call the city “little Paris”. By the way, Turin really looks a lot like Paris. If you don’t have enough opportunities and desire to get to the French capital, just replace it with a trip to Turin.

Mole Antonelliana and Cinema Museum

Since Turin is called "little Paris", there should also be its own Eiffel Tower. It is here. called Mole Antonelliana. This experimental building remained the highest in Italy until 2011. It was even depicted on coins in one centime. Inside the tower is the cinema museum, which works every day except Tuesday. And from the top floor there is a panoramic view of the city and beyond.

Shroud of Turin and Cathedral of San Giovanni

People who are even a little familiar with the history of Christianity can remember the Shroud of Turin. This artifact probably needs no introduction. It is believed that the body of Jesus Christ was wrapped in this shroud. Today it is kept in the main cathedral of the city the Duomo di San Giovanni. The shroud is shown to the public every ten years (or more often if the Pope gives his order). But even if you are not lucky to look at the shroud, in the cathedral itself there are many valuable drawings and frescoes, which are also interesting for tourists.

Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace)

Not far from the huge Turin Cathedral, there are quite impressive traces of the royal past. They are, of course, everywhere. But in the Royal Palace felt much stronger. This neoclassical Baroque building has for many centuries remained the center of power in Turin. The royal family used to live here. And now there is a huge collection of priceless works of art.

The Museum of Egypt

The most impressive collection of artifacts from the era of Ancient Egypt is in Cairo, of course. But the second in importance and size is not in any London or Rome, but in Turin. The Museum of Egypt is located in the very center of the city. He began to form his collection in 1824. Today there are more than 26 thousand objects exhibited in numerous halls.

Palazzo Madama

The most natural story for a palace in which royal families no longer live is to eventually become a museum. The same thing happened with the Palazzo Madama in Turin. Previously, there was the Senate of the kingdom. And now it's the city museum of ancient art. However, the boring name is pretty deceptive. This is a real cultural center, which stores a huge number of works of art from the Middle Ages to the end of the 18th century. And on the top floor there is an open observation platform from which the best sights of Turin are visible.

Fetta di Polenta (Italian "A slice of polenta")

The main attraction of Turin, Mole Antonelliana was built by the famous architect Alessandro Antonelli. But few people know that in his early years he had a hand in yet another unusual architectural object. Even years before his world-famous project, Antonelli built in Turin more than 150 years ago the Fetta di Polenta building, which literally resembles a piece of a polenta pie.

What to eat in Turin

As in any Italian city, first of all you need to order a plate with antipasti, which is a set of various snacks. Basically you will be served meat and cheese slices, olives, greens, baked vegetables and much more.

And in Turin, truffles are very fond of. When ordering pasta in a restaurant, be prepared to get truffle oil for it or to season the dish fresh. The city even hosts a whole truffle festival where you can try a variety of dishes with this delicious mushroom. The truffle season begins in the fall, so you should think about traveling to Turin at this time of the year if you want gastronomic pleasures.

Speaking of pasta. Every region of Italy loves its own kind of pasta. In Turin, this is Agnolotti, which are a smaller and more similar to typical dumpling type of ravioli. They usually start with meat. Served with butter, sauce and generously sprinkled with parmesan.
