1. Lively center but not crowded with tourists

Turin is a city where people live with their families. This is not a huge tourist destination like Rome or Milan. The city center is build around the river with many bars and restaurants, lively crowds and no overwhelming masses of tourists. It’s cleaner, safer and quieter.

2. Wonderful views

If you step off the center by crossing the bridge over Poe river and walking about 10 minutes up the hill, you will reach a church with an amazing view of Turin. And yes, this is just a 10 minute walk from the heart of the city.
