Surprising Turin

Turin is a multi-faceted city, a chest of hidden treasures that can only be discovered in time: from the Turin of the Baroque to Art Nouveau, from the Turin of industry and automobiles, to that of the Savoys and the original Italian Capital. The tourist in Turin can immerse him or herself in atmospheres of other times, thanks to the city's magnificent Medieval borgo and its reproduction of beautiful 15th-Century monuments from Piedmont and the Aosta Valley. Then, under its 7.5 miles of porticoes, foodies and sweets lovers can find some of world's best chocolatiers and historic cafes (also frequented by personages the likes of Camillo Benso, the Count of Cavour and Charlest Albert of Sardinia).
