For many people, Turin is synonymous with being an industrial city or the hometown of Juventus. For others, it is also a city rich in history and culture. If you visit Turin for the first time, you will notice that it has barely anything to do with all the medieval cities of central Italy with their typically narrow streets, palaces and churches of the Renaissance period. Turin is different. Turin has wide and luminous streets, which are surprisingly straight, lined with trees and some covered by porticoes.
