Turin is among the biggest Italian cities; however, isn’t as popular with tourists as much as other cities in Italy. Thus, it doesn’t appear on many websites or magazines.
It was Italy's first capital in 1861, and it hosts the second biggest Egyptian Museum in the world.
In the pictures below, you can see its most popular landmark, Mole Antonelliana, which used to be a synagogue and is the tallest museum in the world. It is not free, and you can buy tickets to the museum and the elevator to the viewpoint. Usually, there are long queues.
Then we have the Parco del Valentino, a vast green park in the middle of the city centre known mainly for two things: a medieval village and having a sculpture of human representations of the months of the year (as seen in the second picture).
The city is crossed by the river Po, the longest river in Italy.
In the city centre you can also find Palazzo Madama which used to be the queen's house in Turin and is now the Museum of Ancient Art.
