Turin – the city in the heart of the Piedmont region
Turin is in the Piedmont region in north-west Italy and, with a population of around 902,000, it is the fourth-largest city in the country. It lies in the foothills of the Po Valley and is bounded by the Alps to the north and the hills of Monferrato to the south. The city’s character has been shaped by the Savoy royal dynasty, in particular their palaces and churches, as well as by the Agnelli family, which founded the Fiat car factory in Turin in 1899. As a baroque city and former royal seat, Turin has a wealth of art and cultural treasures to offer. Many buildings and palaces are UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites, including the residences of the House of Savoy, the Palazzo Madama and the Palazzo Reale. With a total of 18 kilometres of arcades, Turin is a wonderful place to go on leisurely strolls.
