Turin architectural landmarks are perfect for architectural photography. 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 XV century when Savoy dukes moved in.
Torino architectural landmarks can be seen if you walk along 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 – smell of espresso coffee, colorful gelato displays, high fashion boutiques full of 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 a must see landmarks Piazza Castello, as are the Palazzo Reale and Palazzo Madama. At the end of Via Po is 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.
