Turin : Michelin's recommendations
Formerly the seat of the Dukes of Savoy, Turin is best known today as the capital of the Italian car industry and the headquarters of Fiat, which was founded here in 1889. The city’s industrial vocation, however, does not eclipse the fascinating charm of its historic centre, mainly the work of architects Juvara and Guarini, or its busy cultural programme, which includes a host of festivals and the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, a fantastic museum worthy of the birthplace of Italian cinema.
