Tour will start at Piazza Castello, the heart of the city, with its wonderful Baroque buildings, such as Palazzo Madama, Palazzo Reale, the Teatro Regio and St. Lorenzo’s royal church, one of the most beautiful churches in the world. Just behind the Palazzo Reale, there’s the Turin’s Cathedral.
You’ll reach Piazza Carignano, dominated by the facade of Palazzo Carignano, seat of the first Italian Parliament. Crossing its courtyard, you’ll discover the new wing of the Palace, that is nowadays the seat of the Museo del Risorgimento.
You’ll walk along Via Accademia delle Scienze where the Egyptian Museum - the second most important museum on Egyptian civilization after the collection housed in Cairo - stands.
Piazza San Carlo is considered "Turin’s living room" because of its elegance: you’ll see there the statue of Emanuele Filiberto, Duke of Savoy, the one that moved the Duchy’s capital from Chambéry in France, thus starting the growth and the transformation of the city.
Turin Shroud and Cristina Turin
By decision of the Pope, one of the most important relics of Christendom, Turin Shroud, is kept in Turin, and its show is held once in 25 years. Like his predecessor Pope Benedict, Pope Francis authorized an "early" exposition of the cloth in 2015, since the next formally scheduled exposition was set by Pope John Paul II for 2025. Currently, only the living Pope can authorize a public exposition of the Shroud.
Proposed tour goes on the central squares of the city, the church of St. Lawrence and the Cathedral of Turin and will allow pilgrims and visitors to discover its history and historical significance. You will be able to touch the unsolved mysteries of the relics, learn about the latest research results, and understand the reason for its presence in Turin today.
Baroque and chocolate tour
During half-day walking tour the guide will show you captivating Baroque masterpieces: Piazza San Carlo, the Cupola del Guarini. You will see Piazza Castello, where at one side stands the Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale), home of the royal family for 200 years between 1660 and 1861.
No guide to anywhere in Italy would be complete without mentioning the food and Turin is widely considered the Italian capital of chocolate. One speciality you shouldn’t miss is Bicerin, a drink made from coffee, chocolate and cream. During your stroll through Torino's city center you will stop in a historic caffè to experience bicerin, traditionally paired with excellent gourmet chocolate and pastries.
The Museum is one of the most important of its kind in the world thanks to its vast collection and the many different scientific and educational activities it carries out. But what makes it truly unique is its special exhibit setup. The museum is located inside the Mole Antonelliana, a bizarre and fascinating monument which is the symbol of the City of Torino. You will find a spectacular presentation that offers continuous and unexpected visual and acoustic stimuli, just like when we watch a film that involves and moves you. There will be showings of short films and animated films in the Temple Hall, the immense and spectacular heart of the museum situated in the centre of the Mole.
Palazzo Madama is a large historic building that now houses the collections of the Museo Civico d’Arte Antica, Turin’s municipal museum of ancient art. The visit thus consists of two tours in one: you will learn about the history of the building, as well as about the works of art it contains. The visit covers four floors, taking you on a sort of journey through time: in the basement, down by the Roman foundations, there is the Lapidario Medievale – the medieval stonework collection – with stone sculptures and jewellery. From there you can reach the Medieval Garden, a heaven of nature and silence in the heart of Turin; the ground floor is mainly devoted to the fifteenth-century castle and to the art of the Middle Ages and of the Renaissance. In the Treasure Tower, you will find the Portrait of a Man by Antonello da Messina.
The Egyptian Museum of Turin (the second in the world after the Cairo Museum) was established in 1824, although the University of Turin already owned an important collection of Egyptian material. The Drovetti Collection, original nucleus of the Egyptian Museum, gathers 98 statues, as well as an extraordinary collection of papyri which can be considered as the most important set of Egyptian written documents in the world.
Highlights of the museum include an important statue of Ramesses II, of the world’s most significant papyrus collections, and the Tomb of Kha, which dates to 3,500 BC.
On April 1, 2015 a new layout of the museum was opened.
