STROLLING THROUGH TURIN
Turin is a perfect city to be visited on foot. Once you arrive at the Turin Bus Terminal, there are a few tram or subway stops that will take you to the heart of the city. Via Roma and Via Lagrange are the commercial heart of the city, but they also host the city’s real jewels of architecture. Not to be missed is Piazza Castello and the Royal Palace - the Mole Antonelliana - that hosts the impressive National Cinema Museum and the Egyptian Museum with the world’s largest collection - after Cairo - dedicated to this period. Yet, Turin must also be experienced by strolling along the banks of the Po River or by venturing into the hills surrounding the city.
