What to see & do

Mole Antonelliana in Turin – The Mole Antonelliana is a major landmark building in Turin, Italy. It was named after Alessandro Antonelli, the designer and architect who built it in 1863 soon after the Italian Unification. Originally conceived of as a synagogue, it now houses the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, and has become the tallest museum in the world characterised by its monumental proportions.

Royal Church of San Lorenzo – This church is a Baroque-style church found in Turin, adjacent to the Royal Palace of Turin. The present structure was designed and built by Guarino Guarini during 1668-1687. Its cupola, an impressive dome within the church, is stunning – beating the simplicity of the exterior.

Wine tasting and pairing – Piedmont is well known for its great wines, particularly those from Barolo and Barbaresco, Dolcetto, Arneis, Freisa, Gavi, and many others. Most vineyards are on the Langhe hills around Asti and Alba, but the passion for strong red wines is evident among the entire territory. Beers are also available, as well as aromatic wines. Some of the vineyards open their doors to public for a tour, while some also sell. Don't forget to grab a bottle to take home.

The Royal Residences in Piedmont – Scattered in Piedmont are the abodes of various monarchs that has passed and is still living (by bloodline) in Italy. Splendid palace complexes, designed by the best Italian architects, have been kept intact by the government and the royal families so as to keep the legacy going. Some of the notable palaces include the Palazzo Reale, Palazzo Madama, Palazzo Carignano, the Castello del Valentino, Palazzo Chiablese, and Villa della Regina.
