What's Turin Like?

Turin is a city with an immense amount of history and a billion-dollar-a-year tourism industry. The city is home to more than two million people, and tourists that enjoy classic architecture will fall in love with the city, which was mostly designed in the Baroque style. One of Turin's main sites is the Piazza Castello, which is considered the center of the city. A number of significant buildings are located in the city center, including the Piazzo Reale (The Savoy ruling house), the Piazzo Madama (the Savoy Senate), and the Biblioteca Reale (the library), where visitors can see the priceless self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci. Turin is also home to the world-famous and highly-controversial Shroud of Turin, which depicts the image of a crucified man. Some say that this was the burial shroud of Christ after he was crucified, while others say that the shroud is only a clever medieval forgery. Visitors can also view the main street of the city center, called the Via Roma, as an example of the Italian Rationalism popular in the 1930s. Several important soccer clubs are also located in the city, including Juventus Turin and Torino.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Turin

After booking one of Venere's Turin hotels, the traveler will want to get out and mingle among the locals in this large city. Getting around could be somewhat difficult if you do not know Italian. English is not spoken as much in Turin, so learning some basic Italian phrases in order to get around would be a good idea. For this reason, getting a pocket Italian dictionary would probably be a good idea. The town of Turin has had some issues with pickpockets and purse snatchers. If you plan on driving on any of Turin's roads, be aware of a few things, including that cell phones are generally allowed via a loudspeaker system. However, you will need to practice very defensive driving as the style of driving in Italy may be different from what you are accustomed to. Turin has plenty of banks, ATMs, and currency exchange booths with the Staziona Porta Nuova along with others throughout the city. Simply ask the staff at your hotel if you need help locating them.
