Elegant and charming, Turin is an amazing city where every palace, building and street tells the story of Italy’s recent past, made of kings, queens and great statesmen. It’s a trip that starting from the Savoy Kingdom tells the hard and difficult story of Italy’s Union up to the country’s rebuilding after the Second World War, in which Turin big factories played an important role. A story often ignored giving more importance to the roman and Renaissance times but of which Turin, with its magnificent Royal Residences and its extraordinary cultural offer, keeps reminding us.
For an even bigger leap in time back to more than five thousand years ago, the Egyptian Museum, close to Palazzo Carignano, is another outstanding cultural attraction, second of the world for the Egyptian History after El Cairo museum. In the first floor there’s a wide collection of objects, vases, papyrus, and jewels together with mummies and sarcophagus.
