Turin, Piedmonte, Italy


Turin architectural landmarks are perfect for architectural photography. The architecture of this city is quite remarkable and has a long history. Although Torino dates back to Roman times, the city center as we see it today was developed during the XV century when Savoy dukes moved in.

Torino architectural landmarks can be seen if you walk Via Roma from the train station to Piazza Castello and then take Via Po down to the river. One will be tempted many times along the way by a variety of things – the smell of espresso coffee, colorful gelato displays, and high fashion boutiques full of the latest designs. Most of this route passes through streets covered with beautiful arches that extend from the buildings. These arches provide excellent protection from either heat or rain and make it a distinct Turin feature.

Beautiful Mole Antonelliana can be seen from almost any point. Church of Holy Shroud and Church of San Lorenzo are must-see landmarks in Piazza Castello, as are the Palazzo Reale and Palazzo Madama. At the end of Via Po is the grand open space of piazza Veneto. Vittorio Emmanuele Bridge spans the river Po. It is believed that Napoleon himself commissioned this first stone bridge in the city.
