Turin

 

Turin is a large city located in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy.

Famed architect Le Corbusier called Turin “the city with the most beautiful natural location in the world,” with the Po River running through the city, gentle hills overlooking the city, and the Italian Alps off in the distance.

It is also known as the home of Italy’s historic royal family, as represented in its UNESCO World Heritage Site, Residences of the Royal House of Savoy.

Turin is considered by many to be the “Capital of Baroque,” as its landmark buildings, including palaces and churches, were built in this style during the Savoy kingdom.

Although the city has a longstanding cultural and artistic history, it was largely off the travel radar screen until 2006, when it hosted the Winter Olympics

Residences of the Royal House of Savoy

World Heritage Sites inscription: "When Emmanuel-Philibert, Duke of Savoy, moved his capital to Turin in 1562, he began a vast series of building projects (continued by his successors) to demonstrate the power of the ruling house. This outstanding complex of buildings, designed and embellished by the leading architects and artists of the time, radiates out into the surrounding countryside from the Royal Palace in the 'Command Area' of Turin to include many country residences and hunting lodges."
