Pietro Micca Museum

There is a world hidden in Turin’s underground made of an extended system of tunnels built in the XVI century to resist the French siege. Tour Pietro Micca Museum to see in the same tunnels where the battle was fought. It is an inspiring trip to the past and a perfect occasion to see a one-of-a-kind military structure, but certainly it is not advisable for claustrophobics.

Do & See

Turin's vivid history still colours the atmosphere of the entire city. Walking in the streets of Turin, its past as capital of the richest reign of Southern Europe is plain to see: stunning palaces, squares and arches cover the entire city centre, giving to it a magic aura. Some of the most important museums in Italy are right here, too. Don't miss the Egyptian Museum (second only to the one in Cairo), and the Museum of Cinema located in the building-symbol of the city — Mole Antonelliana. Besides art and history, you can also enjoy open air activities. The city centre with its huge park Valentino is a vibrant space for old and young alike. Just outside the city, dozens of Savoy's estates beckon you with their lavish gardens and parks. Last but not least, if you are a sport enthusiast, don't miss to visit Piedmont's ski runs — among the best in the Alps!
