The capital city of the Piemonte region offers so much culturally, architecturally, and agriculturally (think wine and cuisine) and perhaps the best thing it offers, is definitely less crowds than Venice, Florence and Rome.
Torino benefited from a rich history of regal residents over the centuries that bestowed the city with a multitude of palaces, 14 of which are under Unesco status. Palazzo Reale and Venaria Reale are higlighted in this episode.
There is also the legendary story of Gianni Agnelli and the Fiat Automobile company whose Torino factory has produced these iconic cars since 1899.
Gianni Agnelli, the debonair and very well tanned grandson took over in the 1960's and brought yet more attention to his beloved birthplace of Torino.
Tourists from around the world do indeed visit Torino, but not to the extent the other “Greatest Hits” cities, and that alone should make you want to visit .
