The homonymous car achieved cult status in Hollywood with Starsky & Hutch at the end of the 60es and even Clint Eastwood’s film was inspired by this wonderful car. Today Turin, once considered the “Italian Detroit”, is a marvellous city that deserves to be discovered. Where to begin? …the Venaria Reale, Palazzo Madama, with the magnificent staircase by Juvarra, its Roman ruins, Palazzo Carignano, the Mole Antonelliana, the Royal Palace … You would need to spend much more time to visit this city, but even a couple of well-planned hours are enough to reveal the beauty of the old Italian capital. Immerse yourself in a past that has left its traces here: churches, cloisters and the real jewels – its Romanic and Baroque castles that open their doors to those who want to discover the secrets of this period.
