Turin is a city that seems crossed by mysterious forces. Some say streams of magic overlap in esoteric triangulations, but there may be a less unsettling explanation. According to local tradition, Turin is imbued with the spirits of ingenuity, inventiveness, imagination and a passion that takes many forms, from patriotism to a love of sports. Wandering the streets, you'll learn how Turin brought the spirit of the Risorgimento alive, created Italy's automotive industry and enabled the country to take its first steps in cinema, television and telecommunications. Such creativity is still evident in its cultural vitality, its musical and artistic energy, and the natural pull towards the avant-garde. We've chosen places for an unusual and alternative itinerary with these 10 sights for discovering different sides of Turin.

    The Cimitero Monumentale (Monumental Cemetery) features the grave of cabinetmaker Giuseppe Parvis, adorned with Ancient Egyptian pink granite dating back over 4,000 years. The cemetery in Turin houses other surprises, like Cavalier Giuseppe Pongilione's grave. Turin's inhabitants call it the dij rat (mouse) grave, due to the tiny mice among the numerous sculpted figures. If you're more interested in famous figures' tombs, heroes of the Risorgimento are also buried here. There's Silvio Pellico and Massimo d’Azeglio, writers like Primo Levi and Mario Soldato, and celebrities such as Fred Buscaglione and Erminio Macario. Almost all the deceased Grande Torino players are buried here, and there’s an impressive monument in their honour.

    Unusual and quirky homes

    The details that make the difference

    • Budget
    • Tidak Biasa

    Turin is home to unusual and quirky homes notable for their architectural style and small details that make them unique. Walk down Via Palazzo di Città and you'll see an 18th-century building. It seems completely normal apart from the fourth floor, where there's a huge piercing! Not far away, in Via Alfieri, is Number 6. This 17th-century building has been renovated with a modern approach, and the baroque forms blend with contemporary details. It's considered a masterpiece of restoration. South of Valentino, on Via Chiabrera, is 25 Verde (Green), an apartment block that's so-called because its roof and terraces are covered in trees and shrubs. This design is both aesthetically pleasing and practical: The vegetation reduces particulates, creates a stable microclimate and reduces external noise.
