    Welcome to Turin – capital of Piedmont and the first capital of the Kingdom of Italy, an important university, artistic, touristic, cultural and scientific center of the country. It is situated on a plain divided by the rivers Po, Dora Riparia, Stura di Lanzo and Sangone. The River Po crosses the city, so the center of Turin lies on its left bank. The city is surrounded by the 4000 meter high Alps, and the Susa valley connects it with France.
    Turin is the fourth largest Italian city by population with more than 900,000 citizens, while the metropolitan area has more than 2 million residents. Turin is the heart of the Italian automobile industry, being the birthplace of the Fiat brand. The city also boasts a rich sports history, with two famous football clubs, Juventus and Torino. In 2006, the city hosted the tenth Winter Olympic Games and eleventh Winter Paralympics.
    The area where the city now stands, in the third century BC, was occupied by the Taurini, an ancient Gallo-Ligurian people who called their settlement Taurasia or Taurinia. It was destroyed in 218 BC by Hannibal. Later, when the Roman army of Julius Caesar arrived in the city, in the first century BC, they called it Iulia Taurinorum. After the Romans left, Turin was controlled by the Ostrogoths, the Lombards and the Franks. In the tenth century, the March of Turin was founded, a political entity of Piedmont and the nearby lands, later transferred under the rule of the Savoy Royal family. The Savoy dynasty moved their capital from Chambéry to Turin. When the Kingdom of Italy was formed, the city became its first capital.
    Turin suffered during both World Wars in the twentieth century – World War I lead to the death of a large proportion of the population while, during World War II, the city was bombarded by the Allies. Later, Turin became one of the main centers of the Italian resistance movement.
    In the second half of the twentieth century, Turin was one of the most economically successful cities in Italy attracting many Italians from the south of the country.
    Today, Turin is popular among tourists all year round: in winter, they visit for the winter sports in the Alps, in the summer, to visit the royal palaces. Among the largest attractions in Europe are the Turin Cinema and Egyptian museums, which are extremely popular among visitors.
    The city also hosts one of the main Catholic sacred objects – the Holy Shroud, that attracts thousands of pilgrims during the period when it is exposed. At the same time, the city is full of legends about the Shroud, religion and the Holy Grail, that is considered to be hidden in the Church of Gran Madre di Dio.
    If you have enough time in Turin, our tour recommends that you also visit the National Automobile Museum and the Basilica of Superga, both situated outside the city center. The Automobile Museum can be easily reached from the Castle of Valentino by bus (18), and the Basilica of Superga is connected to the city center or railway stations by buses 61, 68 or 15.
    Our tour starts in the main city square – piazza Castello, surrounded by numerous places of interest that you are invited to enjoy!
