THE CITY OF TURIN

written by Chiara Guzzetti

Ostuni città bianca

Turin is moving. This slogan has been used for Winter Olympic Games 2006 but it is still worthwhile.

In fact, Turin has changed his image in a few of years. You can still breathe a unforgettable atmosphere given by art and tradition: the city centre is full of monuments, museums and magnificent churches. If you like walking between shops and history’s corner, green parks and technological services, you will find the ideal place for your holiday.

But now Turin has become a pearl for tourists because there is a new wave caratterizzato by hospitality and pride. Smiles, semplicity and familiarity. That is what expects you in one of the most important city of Italy, the first capital in 1861 and the modern centre already addressed to the future.

You could choose between a lot of entertainments like pubs, discos and restaurants: night life is very eventful. Turin offers much for every taste: it satisfies art lovers, who wants a relaxing holidays or young people who wants to enjoy themselves. And there is much more else to find out: gastonomic goodies, great sports events, social meetings.

Turin is a rainbow: you have only to choose your favourite colour.
