Meet the guide at the hotel’s lobby and discover The Royal City of Turin, undoubtedly Italy’s best kept secret.

However, it is no longer stereotyped merely as a center of great industry or as the militaristic and unrefined base from which the late nineteenth-century Savoy dynasty unified the Italian peninsula.  Indeed, after much careful restoration, the city is now considered one of most elegant and beautiful in Europe. It was of no coincidence that the most refined of the 1800 Grand Tourists often started their trip through the Italian peninsular in Turin.

Some of the sites included in the tour are: Piazza Castello, Piazza Carignano,

Piazza San Carlo with their 1600 and 1700 architecture, the Royal Palace

(no admission), Holy Shroud chapel (no admission), Palazzo Madama

(no admission), Palazzo Carignano (no admission).

at a historic cheese store nestled in the oldest, city quarter.

dedicated exclusively to ancient Egyptian culture and art. The museum’s collection has been the subject of interest for some of history’s most important scholars, for instance Jean-Francois Champollion, decipherer of the Rosetta Stone. To such is attributed the
